Art Analysis / Research Paper

Choose an artist who works in 2D formats creating drawings, paintings, animation, or illustration. Choose one or more works of art from the artist to write a Formal Analysis. Analyze the work (this is called a Formal Analysis in the world of art) using the seven recognized art elements and the principles of design. The art elements may include Line, Value, Color, Shape, Form, Space and Texture. Principles of design include Balance, Rhythm, Repetition, Size, Scale, Proportion, Emphasis, Unity, Movement, Variety, and Contrast. Other areas of discussion may include the use of Light and Perspective (Linear and/or Isometric). Only discuss using art elements/principles of design that stand out in the work you are analyzing. Begin by writing about why you like the work. What stands out? Which art elements? Is it the color? The camera angle? The illusion of depth? When writing your paper, begin with the strongest elements and move from there. Hint: Develop and build on your observations in a logical sequence. Besides analyzing the art, also present a Contextualization of the work. A Contextualization in art represents the “Ws.” Who, what, where, when, why; this is where your research comes in. Provide proper citations in an acceptable format such as MLA. Please provide an image of the art you analyze as an attachment. Length of paper is minimum two pages, double-spaced. There is no maximum length requirement. However, I’m looking for quality over quantity in your analysis and context research. You will be using turnitin.com to submit your paper. Good luck!
