Student Example: Sadness #2

  1. 1. Sadness
  2. 2. Exhibition Statement The depiction of sadness is all about shape. Although one often hears about a sad expression most of the artists we surveyed did not show their subject’s faces, preferring to use their subjects posture to indicate their feelings. If anything the lack of direct eye contact, the hidden and unapproachable poses, serve to heighten the feeling of deep grief. Nor was sadness associated with a gray or colorless image as one might imagine. Very often intense colors and contrasts were used. Although blues and greens were more commonly used, there were a fair number of warmer colors in evidence as well. The other striking feature of the work is the almost total absence of supporting background detail. The world recedes from the sad into a place of isolation. The works cover a span of several centuries and represent work by both masters as well as lesser known artists. Please also note our selection of background colors to support each individual image rather than the use of a common or plain white one.
