  1. 1. The date displays a number of major artists who use imagery, emotion or political context art through forms of expression in varied representative eras such as Surrealism, Expressionism, Political Art. 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 Surrealism Expressionism Political Art
  2. 2.   Art is like having an itch you cannot scratch. A craving that is never fulfilled. It is a way to extend and display an idea or an emotion.   Through the effects of color as in visual arts. Color can have a huge multiplicity of effects on the psyche. Also, through inspirations and diversity of the mixed mediums, art becomes an alternative language and tool for communicating a message to the world.   Fine art often has goals beyond pure creativity and self- expression. The purpose of works of art may be to put ideas on view; such as in politically-, spiritually-, or philosophically-motivated art; to create a sense of; to explore the nature of perception; for pleasure; or to generate strong emotions.
  3. 3.   The main inspiration for most of my artwork is the human body: the majesty of the naturally, and neatly sculpted human body.   The curves in both the female and male figures are a work of art themselves; The fine anatomic division of the human body is amazingly captivating to paint or draw.   Alongside to the human body, the 1924 art movement of Surrealism has a clear influence on my art work in the context of expressive art.   Surrealism can be defined as “a cultural movement and artistic style that was founded in 1924 by André Breton.   Surrealism uses visual imagery from the subconscious mind to create art without the intention of logical comprehensibility” It is to incorporate one’s imagination and start seeing things from a surrealist vision which does not necessarily logical or realistic.   I adapted from this culture and movement to embody and express a certain vision or an emotion in a work of art.
  4. 4.  This is an example of an art piece that expresses a certain emotion through the physical attribute and composition of the work.  The sculpture of “Trapped in Myself” embodies the theme of self consciousness and insecurity.   It illustrates the sense of vulnerability of a female figure.   The figure is purposely naked to display the sense wanting to strip down of all life’s accessories.  The figure also represent the sense of pain as the female’s real self come out.  The face coming out of the figure’s chest was meant to expresses sense of struggle and relief at the same time.
  5. 5. •  Another way of expression through art is communicating a political message. •  displaying a certain political view through art is an effective form of art that captivates and might influence audiences. •  Political art can bring about a social and political change in our society through the message its communicating.
  6. 6. Believe that art is a dynamic human attribute and form of expression Believe that the Practice of art is a waste of time Consider art no more than a visual image; not expressive
