AP STUDIO ART
The central idea of my concentration was human emotions. In this piece, the emotion that is being prorated is Anger. By using a variety of brushes, I was able to illustrate the action of one yelling. To create this art work, I used oil paints and acrylic. Using oil paints helped form the shape of the subject's body and create values which framed the wrinkles the body makes. With the acrylic paint, I was able to create movement of the forceful response that is made when yelling. The boldness of the color Red, which is represented by Red, increases the voice of the painting.
This is a intaglio print. It is the fourth one of out the five I had printed. I etched out buildings from Times Square, from my own reference, onto a plexiglass. Using black ink and a printing press, I was able to print this piece five times.
In this piece I had to use an actual stick in order to draw a stick I had in front of me. By dipping the stick’s sharp edge, that I made with an X-acto knife, I was able to draw the stick with the black ink provided. Adding water to the ink creates a variety of values to help create a depth composition.
This piece is representing frustration. The girl is clearly shown screaming while holding onto her hair. This is a known movement when feeling frustrated. One has the urge to pull their own hair out. Using oils I was able to create an illusion of the body shape. The black lines in the background help visualize the action of screaming.
This art work is from my concentration. The emotion that is being shown is Anxiety. Personally when I have anxiety, I feel like there is something holding onto me so tightly that I can barley move. The girl in this piece is shown having these dark hands, grabbing onto her body so tightly that bruises are forming. I used oil paint to form the body shape and give depth into the values.
