Henry Ossawa Tanner
The artist that I picked for my essay is Henry Ossawa Tanner. He was an very impactful artist in the 19th century. When he moved to Paris after several exhibits he gained an international acclaim- being the first African American to receive attention. I think that's pretty cool.
I picked his work called "Moroccan man" to compare an contrast to my work that was post impressionism, which is my starry night mix up painting. The similarities between my work and his work is the focus on the person in the middle. We both use brush strokes in our work to show impression of light. The differences in our work is that mine is more colorful than his. My background is more detailed and shows motion through my brush strokes. Also, mine is a little more post-impressionist. My painting has a more realistic aspect to my person than his. Tanner's painting is full of dull colors.
Henry Tanner probably wouldn't have liked my work. I say this because I used a lot of bright colors like blue, yellow, white, and a dark purple that pops. Another reason is that mine has more of a happy and vibrate feel. Then again, he might have thought good things of it because it's of a person; or maybe because I am also a black artist trying to make something out of my art.
Artist name: sergio Tittle " the rejected spiderman'
the sculpture is not to big, but it's not too small. the shape of the sculpture is circular. the texture is rough and cracky and looks a little beat up. the colors that are in the sulpture are blue, white, red, ND BLACK. THERE ARE A BUNCH OF CURVES. THE MATERIALS THAT WERE USED TO MAKE IT WAS STOCKING, a piece of wood, a wire from a hanger , and paint.
this sculpture is asymetrical and most of the sculpture is on one side of the wooden block. it looks heavier on one side. the first thing I see when I look at the sculpture is the face, because its the brightest and it stands out the most. there isn't really any patterns in the sculpture. the only thing that really repeats is the eye, because theres one on both sides. the thing that i look at first is the face and then my eyes moves down towards the bottom. theres not much contrast in this sculpture. the only thing that really pops is the head. the elements in the sculpture do not flow together, they're just there.
i think the tittle is a perfect name for how the sculture looks. i think the goal was to make a unique sclupture with something he likes. i think the message is that he likes spider-man. the mood for this is kinda dead. when i look at it i dont realy have an emotion. i dont really like the fact that it looked like a zombie, because zombies look nasty. i think he was trying to get a good grade though. he did good in my opinion.
I was trying to make something that was me. I added my personality to my artwork. I decided to do my favorite cartoon with my favorite food, because I love food. Food is life. My mash-up is a picture of Dale looking at the sky and a hamburger. I used color to create contrast. I wanted Dale to pop out. I used line to create the hamburger. I traced Dale on my tablet and transferred him on a new piece of paper. Then I drew the hamburger and painted both of them. I became aware that chipmunks can’t eat hamburgers and I see myself in Dale because we both have gaps and a red nose.
