The Chair

Chair

Chair

The use of value changes In conjunction with atmospheric perspective allowed the viewers to feel like there was distance and depth in the art work. As you take a look down from the left side across from the chair cushion, it recedes back to the paper to show the depth of the chair. It is darker in the front because of the angle I was standing at. As you look down to the left that one corner of the cloth is draw out closer to the viewers because it was shaded with darker tones to bring it out farther.

I learned how to utilize and make correct proportions because of the perspective project we were give. Because of the “Chair”, I was able to measure out and slowly draw something that is proportionally correct in the field where I can be correct and draw more realistically to the real object. This went hand to hand with my Visual Communication course where we learned about different type of perspectives. This would be a great example of a Two-Point perspective where it starts at one point and gently goes out in two directions.

I did not know I was able to draw the distance of an actual chair. Nor capable or have the potential of drawing a chair. The process of shading a three-dimensional chair where you can see the different blend of dark, light and medium tones helping me present a monochromic chair right on paper. What made the chair more complicated was that there was a cloth right over the chair. However, this project taught me to step out of my comfort zone and try new ways to enhance my ability in Foundation. This project taught me patience and not trying to get things done quickly as you can. In addition to taking my time and counting the lines on the cloth and making your art work real. This project was to get a full understanding distortion form in space. If there is anything I would change about my piece it would be spending more time on my chair to get a better quality of what I want. I can tell I have been improving since August, however in order to get where I want to be I have devote my time on my work and minimize my social life.

“Sunset On The Land” Journal

Sunset on the land

Sunset on the land

On my way back to Alfred State, I came upon this sunset. The value shift has the color smoothly going from a darker shade to a lighter shade. The color of sunset is in the outer space as everything else that on earth is in the inner space. The color of the sunset separates space as it divides each hue in the sky. The color pallet display a tetradic color scheme as it falls between primary and secondary colors. The tint of the yellowish-red hue further away desaturate the complexion, making it less intense. Where the shade of the darker color show rich and intense variety of the color blue.

“I Am Not I” Response

Looking at the first paragraph, the answer to “Who Am I ” is “I Am”. Its blurring the line between the question and answer. The question is becoming the answer, vice versa where the answer is becoming the question. As they say mind over matter , things are only valuable as you make them. When you start thinking about yourself and where you belong in the world its not about what you do or where you need to be; its about finding that purpose for yourself.

Color Pallets

The image you see above are 6×6 color pallets. Color Pallets are color schemes that extends behind the actual color. “Blood Flow” shows he different shades of red our blood go through if you take a closer look at them, they are not just one color red. “Sunset Over The Sea” display incredible color we see over the sea when the sunset. These play of colors compliment one another as we see them flow through one another in the sky.

The color scheme of the “Blood Flow” is a monochrome in a value of the color Red. The change in tone from dark to light also change the hue. It’s important to realize that tones are relative, that how dark or light they seem depends on what’s going in the color. Hues produce variety of shades where the color may look the same but pigment is different. The hues tells the contrast in value from black to white. As you take a look at “Blood Flow” , you can see monochrome color scheme from dark red to light red. The tint and shade of the “Blood Flow” shows different varieties of the color red.

The color scheme of the “Sunset Over The Sea” is a tetradic. If you notice the colors of “Sunset over the sea”, you can notice the balance between warm and cool colors in your design. Tetradic color are made up of complements it tends to be a very vibrant in the color schemes. Tetradic color scheme falls between the the primaries and secondaries.  This scheme is hard to harmonize where it may unbalanced because offers more color variety than any other scheme.

Brian Murphy joined us for an anaglyph display in the Llewellyn Gallery. Murphy exhibit three big pieces are public speckles to draw crowd to gain their attention. Turkey Oil Wrestling piece , Murphy worked with frame by frame to display an open structure that gives shape and support to the images. Murphy enjoys working in the moment within the single frame. The artist is very creative using anaglyph to display more 3D effect achieved by means of encrypting each eye’s image using filters of different colors. The images contains two different filtered color, one for each eye. Hence to why we wore 3D glasses to look at the aspects of the images more clearly. Without the 3D glasses, the images would have a very strange sight and may appear to look fuzzy or out of focus. Anaglyph 3D videos explores possession and fabrication of conflict using sound , video and archive films.

What I found unique about Murphys work is he use his DNA in one of his work. Murphy use sequence part of his DNA to make music with chain of letters , using information to effect the original, process and current process of his DNA. I find this fascinating because he use his genes and incorporating it in his work. Murphy use voltage control to tap with the signal in his piece. Adding in the sound of the voltage lifts the piece.

Drawing of The Chair

Drawing of The Chair

The image you see above is a draft of my next project. In this assignment we have to draw a chair with a sheet on top of it. We have to stand at a different angle to draw what we see. The final drawing will be on 22×30 Arches, Rives, or Strathmore paper. What I can take away from this project would be the virtue of how many sides the chair including the degree and angle.
