Transcript of "Unit 3"

  1. 1. Unit 3 Critiques
  2. 2. Critique ● A critique is an evaluation of an artwork's sensory and aesthetic qualities. ● Aesthetics – the study of beauty
  3. 3. Steps in a Critique 1) Describe the object's sensory qualities. ● Shape & form geometric (having a regular shape/form; ex. - square, oval, circle) organic (having an irregular shape/form; ex. - blobs, animal/human forms) ● Line - width (thick, thin), length, sharpness/fuzziness, continuous/broken, flowing, movement, direction (horizontal, vertical, diagonal), boundaries/ edges ● Colour hue (lightness/darkness of a colour), intensity, opacity (is it see through or not?) ● Space Positive space (space that is taken up by the object) negative space (space within a vessel, or within the boundaries of an object; ex. - underneath a chair) ● Texture rough, smooth, ridged, pebbly, grooved, high relief, low relief, intaglio
  4. 4. Steps in a Critique 2) Describe the object's formal qualities. ● Balance Imagine a line through the object. Are the sides balanced? How do colour, line, and texture contribute to a feeling of balance? Is the object symmetrical (the same on both sides) or asymmetrical (not the same on both sides)? Is it top-heavy (more visual weight at the top)? Or bottom- heavy (more visual weight at the bottom)? ● Unity Are all the parts harmonized? Do the texture and decoration make sense with the form? ● Proportion & size How would you describe the size of the object? Think of length, height, width, volume, weight, thickness. Do the proportions of the vessel make sense considering its function? If a sculpture is representational, does it accurately copy the proportions of a model? Are the proportions unusual, and how does this affect the overall object?
  5. 5. Steps in a Critique 2) Describe the object's formal qualities. ● Movement and Rhythm Are any designs or shapes repeated? Are they repeated in the same way each time, or do they vary? How? Do the designs or textures feel fast or slow? ● Emphasis Does one area grab your attention more than others? Why? How did the artist emphasize that part? ● Pattern Are the patterns random or planned? Are they because of repeated lines, colours, shapes, or textures? Think of words like radial (radiating from a centre point), grid, alternating, border or band.
  6. 6. Steps in a Critique 3) Describe the object's expressive qualities. ● Mood happy, witty, whimsical, playful, clumsy, mysterious, reflective, calm, quiet, sad... ● Tension What kind of energy does the object have: tranquil, dynamic, powerful, relaxed, conflicted, heavy... ● Ideals/concepts Does the work represent an ideal or concept? Heroism, nobility, villainy, ...
  7. 7. Reflection: Unit 3 1) Do you think you were successful in using slab building? Explain. 2) What areas of your project are the most successful? Explain. 3) What would you change about your project?
