Midterm Portfolio Carla rodriguez cruz

Describe

The appearance in this piece is a 3D work on a squeal of Shutter Island. The scene of this piece is part of the film, where Teddy Daniels is choking his wife. The setting is in a backyard. There's also a title, which is a second sequel. The first thing one would see would be the red and cyan (blue) because since the color of the background is black and white, they pop out.

Analyze

The picture uses main black and white to give the value a bigger exposition to the image which is based on drawing the viewer's attention to a particular part of the composition. As in for the distance the photo is filling in the frame and makes the viewer focus on what the artist is trying to communicate. The illusion of the picture can be made whenever one is using 3D glasses, it creates shadows and depth. Which is the main focus.

Interpret

While it was being creating the image it was kind of disturbing because it's a violent act in the scene. The mood paraded into the artwork was very unfortable which is how the sequel mood is. Also it was created to interpret the scene where the guy remembers that the new wife that he met reminded him of his passed wife, which he killed because she had killed her children. Once that memory came back, he imagined his passed wife and ended killing his current wife.

Evaluate

This work has value because it have a very strong composition which can create mixed emotion towards the viewer's brain. The work communicates a feeling that can affect the viewer due to past event or current events.

Describe

The kind of medium is a picture. These two images of the single person were taken outside. One can notice first on how it has a dream like figure which can tell a story in someone's imagination. Also it has a whole bunch of different colors. There are strokes of bold colors and light shades towards the outer corners. The shapes are put randomized and has no straight lines or any shape or form.

Analyze

The colors has an effect to the image because it creates a tense look on the piece. It has a framing which is created by a texture. The shapes and lines are used to create a randomized. The overall visual effect or the mood of the work creates a dreamy image due to the shadowing and light tones.

Interpretation

There is really no meaning in this piece of work but can be described as a teenager just staring in space and daydreaming. In which symbols are actually being described but one has a different mind and ideas when this piece is seen. They can see it as just a person looking at a certain object or a person dreaming about the future.

Evaluation

This piece was a sucessful because it created the same image of Luke Mack without copying exactly the colors or texture of his oil painting. In which the piece of Luke Mack was inspired from and this was the final product of that piece. It creates an emotional response towards mostly any viewer because if they can see the background story of this image they can compare themselves during the stage of their teenage years.

Describe

This picture was taken infront of William Amos Hough High School. As you can see its an image of a hand holding a purple flower with the background of tall grass flowing.

Analyze

In this picture there is a bright, popping, image of the flower because its purple and also because it's the main concept of the picture. The texture in the picture can be seen by all the little detail drawn inside the flower. There is also repetition and movement. You can see the grass in the background flowing into one direction.

Interpretation

The background meaning to this picture is just to show how calming and beautiful nature can be. Or in other's eyes can just be a normal picture of just a person holding a flower. There are many ways to describe this piece and how it can be interpreted to someone else. It also leads the viewer's eyes to the center of the flower to view all the little key element and also how distance plays a role is that it is filling up the frame, makes the viewer focus on what the artist is trying to communicate to anyone who views it.

Evaluate

This piece in my opinion, was very successful due to all the detail incorporated into the image. Which creates a density in order to grab attention. With this piece it can create an emotional response and connection because one recognize the flower and determine what type of flower exactly it is. But also can create a loving or bad recreation of the past. There is always going to be different views in different minds.

Peers Photographs

Describe

I see 3 people sitting on benches. I can also tell that's it's winding because of the hair flowing around all the place. My feelings towards this image can be described as a calm and windy day. The peoples mood can be described as serious but yet have a reaction like why is it so windy. As in for the girl in the middle she seems to get all the attention. But I can't see the actual meaning of this image.

Analyze

The artist uses different shades of blue in this photo. As well as other colors like white and black. They are all complementary colors which makes the image all go in place together. You can also say that there is leading lines because there's a balance on both sides of the image. As well as depth, it creates and also catches the viewer's eyes to focus on a particular place.

Interpretation

I had a feeling of a cold breeze but yet sunny at the same time because the light bounces off them. I don't think this image a representation of a symbol or anything. As in for the manner of this work I felt like she was just trying to catch attention. One can predict she made this artistic decision because the space that is used.

Evaluation

I guess it has value in the picture because every person in this image has a different view on what is going on while this picture is being taken. It is a attention grabber image but i don't believe it conveys a message because it's just people sitting down. I can't see it making a idea or feeling towards this particular image but can create a connection.

Describe

What I observed when I first looked at artwork was that there's a person with like 7 heads. They all have a funny expression. The medium is a photo. She's also holding a phone, she's wearing a dark blue sweater with black jeans and also white converse. In my eyes I can see that she's intended to say that she has a funny characteristic.

Analyze

All the colors go together which makes it a better picture. I can't see any compositional points beside that it somewhat creates a pattern in the heads. The artist used just rectangles within the work of art, which doesn't make an understanding concept. There's also no texture nor light involved besides that the right side is a little bit brighter than the left side. My overall mood would have to be joy.

Interpretation

I felt enjoyment as I viewed this image because it lightens up my heart. I don't think anything else in the artwork represent other symbols. Well in my opinion, I don't like the way of the placement of the heads and how the artist just did the heads and nothing else besides an overlay copy of the arms. Besides everything else, I believe the artist create this artwork to show the different types of emotions and how she might be happy all the time.

Evaluation

The only value I find in this work is the point that she's happy. In which that's how the world should always be. I do find this piece a little bit on the lacking side because it's just faces like simple. but then again the artist can incorporate why exactly it's like how it is. I feel like the work is ok because there's really not a lot of information that can be thoughted out to create or understand what the artist is trying to communicate.
