arts discussion 2

  • Why did you choose it? What do you think of your choice?
  • How is it abstracted from reality? What types of shapes do you see in the piece?
  • What was it used for?
  • Did the shape correlate to the use, or was it more of a compositional, artistic choice?
  • Is there any specific meaning to the shape?
  • Does the shape remind you of anything in more contemporary times?
  • Is the piece good? What makes it successful?
  • Make sure to use vocabulary from this week’s chapter. What kind of shapes do you see? Is there any kind of positive/negative ground? Is the work abstracted? How?
