Analysis for the painting

Three type written pages minimum, double space (from hand written notes). If possible, add picture of artwork on a fourth page.

Write a three page analysis on a short section of a single art work of your choice. Look for what is unusual and distinctive about the way the art work is made, its formal qualities. What are the techniques used to structure the work. How does the composition, the aproach to applying materials, the colors, textures, context, and the relationship between the different elements of the art work challenges us and surprises us? How these formal gestures contribute to or interact with our understanding of the work?

Your essay should discuss how the work exploits elements of form by using detailed, concrete references to specific details. Describe the strategies being used but also, again just as important, what do these strategies bring to your experience of the art work. Remember that it is an analysis, not a review! It is the quality of your explanations that counts. Points will be deducted for poor grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Please proof read your papers carefully!
