I chose the Francis Bacon painting because it gave a clear dark/negative message of higher authority and religous affiliation.
The painting I chose was the Francis Bacon painting. It showed a not so "pretty" side to a well known religious figure and gave the viewer an insight on the "uglier" side of religion and I believe, people in general.
Hey. What's up? I chose the Edward Hopper painting because it reminded me of what I do when I get home. I sit around and do homework or watch television. In my opinion, the overall message Hopper was trying to convey was that couples may not always have stuff in common to talk about. They are more seperated then people think. I got to that conclusion because the couple is not talking to one another and are doing seperate things in the room.
Nothing much! How you doing girl?
Im awesome!!! hows school going?
I choose the Norman Rockwell painting because I can connect with the feeling being looked at a little funny. I also was drawn to the children's way of staring, it wasn't rudely staring but a wondering stare. The paintings message was that we notice differences too much and that if we stare we should stare in wonder , not disgust.
LOVE IT! Very nice and sweet!
I chose the photo by M. Horn because it really stuck out to me from all the other art pieces. It clearly showed pain and someone wanting to yell but keeping silent.
i choose M.Horn because i thought it was dramatic and meaningful. it had awesome values and i liked the creepy feel of it. i thought it was creative that the artist put the screaming mouth in the girls neck and kept her normal mouth closed. i thought this explained her want to scream out and say something but was restricted.
I chose the Edward Hopper piece because the colors caught my eye and it stuck out to me. I think this piece shows that the couple does not get along well or they do not always want to do the same thing. It looks like the lady wants to go out because she is dressed up but the man wants to stay home and read the newspaper.
I critiqued the Norman Rockwell painting because it shows awesome use of balance and placement of the the children while illustrating how these children are curious about one another.
I chose the Norman Rockwell painting because the look of the children's stares were interesting because they were filled with curiosity. The authors message was the two groups of people are not so different from each other, but yet there is still a divide between them.
I chose the toothbrush n soap painting by Dana Herrault because i think it showed moral value of daily hygiene .
I chose the Norman Rockwell piece because it was colorful and displayed an interesting subject. The way the children were staring at each other showed the curiosity and tension with the two groups. Shows the diversity between the two. Tension between races back then.
I did a critique on Norman Rokwells work. I liked the colors and balance of the peice. And it did a good job describing how people viewed one another.
I choose M. Horn because I thought the drawing was very dark and moving. The drawing had very good difference in values. The emotion that it gave off was very dark and some what painful. Having the mouth on the girls neck was very moving. Having no emotion on her face was also moving because it gave me the feeling that behind every silent person there is a scream for help crying out inside. The drawing should no lines, which i thought was very creative because life itself has no outlines.
I chose the painting by Norman Rockwell. The reason i picked this one was becasue of all the little details that gave the painting so many meanings. This painting to me demonstrates the progress of equalization in society and the similarities people have can be unifying (The boys on both sides have the similar love of baseball, you can see this because they both are holding baseball mitts).
Love your critique!
I chose Norman Rockwell's painting because of the subject matter. I feel he was trying to express who innocent children can be, but also that they are still aware of what is going on. Both groups of children have a baseball mitt, but neither have mad any attempt to play with each other. They also appear to be curious about one another. But all of this is shaken because of the contrast between the two groups pets, who appear to be willing to strike at any moment. The artwork is a powerful message of progress that could still use some working on.
I chose Norman Rockwell. I chose this because at a glance this doesn't look like much is going on but when you look at this closely you can see what message the artist is portraying which is showing the conflict between blacks and whites but also share a common interest in baseball.
I like baseball ;)
I chose Norman Rockwell's piece because it shows tension between races, which happens often but the drawing also shows a common interest between to kids. This shows that within diversity you can still achieve unity.
PREACH IT GIRL!
I wish there was a like button for this
I wish there was a LOVE button!
I chose the painting of the tomato. Its simplicity is awesome and shows there is no need to alter nature's work.
I picked the piece by M.Horn because I found it to be interesting and dramatic. I also really like the composition and meaning behind it, because it was easily relate-able for me.
I picked the painting of Francis Bacon of the demon pope. Because it is intresting that someone to painting a pope like that,
i chose the drawing of the screaming girl in a box. the drawing capture the moment and how realistic and awesome it is.
I chose Kelsy's piece with the girl in the desert. (I just realized we were supposd to do N. Rockwell, but it's to late so don't judge!). I chose her piece because it is beautiful with an underlying meaning.
I chose Edward Hopper's piece. It reminded me of the difficulties of my parents and their marriage, although, they have gotten through their marital issues. The message received in this artwork is that not everything is what it seems because things can fail or not work out.
I chose the piece by Norman Rockwell. The energy of this painting jumped out at me, seeing the sheer difference in the two groups by the spacing between them, while also noticing the unity in the kids' positions and curiosity. The composition of the subjects helped me understand this sense of racial separation, and the emotion they were feeling. Their lines of vision and even the directly opposite animal pets made the meaning clear to me. This makes me think that Rockwell's view was that there is hope in children. Maybe society should see through a child's eyes, and maybe then we can truly become a unified race. If youth are not so tainted by the opinions of adults, they can teach us to love each other again.
I chose Caitlin O'Connell's piece of the bloody band aid box. It reached out to me because I know how that feeling of being close to something I need but never close enough to grab. Yep. And I like blood
I choose Kenzie Wallace's piece of the marbles, because i like marbles and hers are the best i've seen drawn. Lyke dey b gooood. It reached out to me because they were shiny and they look like marbles. So, yeah, they're very good. Go check 'em out.
