Art Up Close

The painting does not have much depth because it is not a three dimensional artwork. However, the artist made wise use of the space, and there is not much negative space in his work. Every color and every stroke in the painting signifies something. And because the artist did play much with the other elements, it is wise for him to utilize all the available spaces. The painting does not have much depth because it is not a three dimensional artwork. However, the artist made wise use of the space, and there is not much negative space in his work. Every color and every stroke in the painting signifies something. And because the artist did play much with the other elements, it is wise for him to utilize all the available spaces.  The artist did not play much with light in his artwork. Light is evenly distributed in the painting which gives emphasis on how the artist used lines and texture to express his message. The painting is dominated by cool colors, particularly shades of violet. This use of a dominant color gives the painting a serious touch. There is dullness and misery in the work because of the relatively light and monotonous shade.  However, there are also shades of flesh and red, which are warm colors. And although the cool colors are dominant, the warm colors are still able to exude strong feelings of loneliness or melancholy. Texture is one of the artist’s way of conveying the figure or the woman’s economic status to better portray her identity. In the painting, the overlapping and jagged lines suggest tattered and rugged clothes. These lines are also used to show tears on the edges of the woman’s body which could mean that she wears torn clothes or she has pierced or wounded skin. The chaotic patterns used to depict the woman suggest that the woman is problematic or in a state of depression.The lines are effective ways of indicating motion. However, the less number of curved lines, as compared to the sharp straight lines does not show much movement. There is also no indication of time. However, this is very appropriate for the painting since it is a figure of a woman. Focus should be given to the emotions and the mood, and not on the time and emotion. The painting’s lighting is ambient. This adds to the monotony of the picture.
