I have an opportunity to test this out with my latest drawing project. We have been asked to revisit, rethink, revise a piece of visual art that we respond to. I've decided to chose a piece by Wassily Kandinsky because it was in learning about his paintings that I was really pushed to start painting myself.
|Composition, 1913, Wassily Kandinsky|
So when I pressented this idea to my prof, she made two comments: 1. rythme is important in the piece and 2. i should consider social and philosophical changes in the world since 1913 that would account for the revision of this piece.
So lots of interesting questions to ask myself with regards to this piece. I'd better get on it too cuz it's due on Monday . . . and i've still got one more painting to finish for my solo show coming up on the 17th eeeeps!
Things to consider about my philosophy about life and art: 1. what is my basic philosophy of life (i should articulate it) 2. what is my worldview, relation to natural world, 3. what values do I hold dear. Hmm . . . will probably need coffee (or something stronger) to wrestle with issues by Monday :)
