EXERCISE 1 : Element of Art (Line and Color)

Geometric Shape

Material & Tool : Pencils 2B, 5B, 6B  on A3 Drawing Paper.

Okay before I explain about the basic of drawing, notice the image seen have a slightly some error around the sphere part at the shadow. The camera have effect the drawing to become a little bit tricky on the point eye view.

Alright, now for the explaination about the basic of drawing, what you must keep in mind are that most important thing are :
LINE AND COLOR.

  • Line

    The line is a row of dots in a row with a certain distance. The lines can be processed to create the look, braid, tone, style, and to create the form, space, and movement. The lines on the objects of nature and man-made objects.

  • Color
    Color is the element of art that is produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye. There are three (3) properties to color. First is hue, which simply means the name we give to a color (red, yellow, blue, etc.). The second property is intensity, which refers to the strength and vividness of the color. For example, we may describe the color blue as “royal” (bright, rich, vibrant) or “dull” (grayed). The third and final property of color is its value, meaning its lightness or darkness. The terms shade and tint are in reference to value changes in colors

ART CRITICISM

73528563-8178-41ac-992e-f7332e1c403e

  1. Description : This artwork is a form of head of a rhino. It actual size are 2 x 2 feet per square inches. Material used are net wired and cable tied. The artist is Mohd. Ashraf B. Ibrahim. Created in 2017. The style of the artwork are ‘Surrealism’.
  2. Analysis : This artwork use net wired as a based for shaping rhino’s head. The used of shape and form have make the head become realistic. The use of space and unity make the illusion more alive.
  3. Interpretation : The shape and form of the sculpture have driven audience to see through the subject matter. Audience have the feel to become confuse about the proportion of the rhino’s head because the hidden message of the artwork are connected to the tittle ‘ Abomination ‘ . The illegal hunting on the endangered species have become an issue where everyone are aware. However, the hunting still continues throughout years and the endangered species are now be treated as a profitable or valuable resource to be sold to the black market. That is why, ‘ Abomination ‘ is the suitable tittle for this artwork.
  4. Judgement : I think this work is a mere successful as it capture few audience attention about our behaviour towards animal.

2ND PROJECT: MOBILE SCULPTURE

The art style that I have choose are ‘ Surrealism ‘.

For the artist, I have choose Pietro D’angelo.

io-con-basso-680x482

PIETRO D’ANGELO IS A FIGURATIVE SCULPTOR. BORN IN PALERMO, ITALY IN 1974. IN 2005 HE GRADUATED AT THE ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS OF BOLOGNA IN THE SCULPTURE DEPARTMENT WITH THE HIGHEST SCORE POSSIBLE.

From here he has worked for himself, producing sculptures to various exhibitions.  Pietro found his own style by using rather unusual materials for his creations such as paper clips, screws and pins..

The object, whatever it is, is assembled, manipulated, accumulated, handled and admired for giving life to works, where the sculpture tends to pass its limit creating optical illusions obtained because of the ambiguity between visible and invisible, full and empty, heavy and light.

At the beginning, Pietro created sculptures with iron paper clips bought from office supply stores, but now the artist uses stainless steel ones that are made for him by a paper clip factory.

Lately he has just started a new series of sculpture with stainless steel paper clips that represent children who talk with a flower, trying to emphasize flowers’ language. For this reason flowers are ever colored. He loves to be inspired by everyday life and nature.

Usually to make a life-size figure, he use between 10.000/12.000 paper clips. To create a sculpture, he employs about 2/3 months of work.

Below are the example of his artwork :

Self- Reflection.

At the end of this exercise, I found out that:-

  • Basic drawing marks (points and line area) are the most important part in making an artwork. It will be unaesthetic if I did not apply it.
  • There is no right or wrong in making artwork but if you don’t have this kind of knowledge, your work will not catch people or audience eyes.
  • Colour is also important in order to make the artwork beautiful and nice to see. The monochromatic color will make the artwork become unity or else it will be dull and people try to look at it not more than 3 seconds.
