Activity 5.1: Pre-Thought — 2-D Visual Art

In this activity I want you to apply some of the formalistic elements we learned from the previous Module. Look at the image below and discuss what you see using formalistic analysis. Also, does the image evoke any emotional response, if so what and how do you think that emotion is being evoked?


Activity 5.2 2-D Visual Art

In the 19th and twentieth century many artists experimented with artistic style and technique and rebelled against “traditional” attempts to create the “illusion of reality” in art.

In a short essay of no less than 300 words, discuss examples of how this rebellion manifested its in some artists’ work? You may discuss Van Gogh and/or Rothko but I would like to see some reference to other artists describe from the reading as well.
