Artist Project #1 (Pablo Picasso)

Visual Project 2: Shadow Hunt

Shadow in the shadow

I have no idea where I got the idea of that picture. I took the picture of my "jewelry" and its shadow. You can tell from the bright spots from it that the light is coming from the side of the shadow instead of my camera. I also post how I took the picture below.

Architectural Experience

Image result for building like monster
In my childhood, I usually went to my grandparents' house. My father took me home in the same way every evening. However, one day, he chose another way, and I meet the scariest thing in my whole life. It is a monster. I still member how the "monster" looks like. It really has a big square head, and huge arms like waving to me. it seems like 40 meters high. I was so scared that I ran home as soon as possible. The other day, I left early before the sun goes down, so I could see that monster again. Sadly, it is just a building belongs to the mine company.

Blog assignment for week 2 9/7/16

The Old Guitarist 1904

One of the fascinating paintings I prefer to present is The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso in 1903-1904. It is exhibited in the Art Institute of Chicago. I select it because it was designed by Picasso in his early years, the blue period. It attracted me because it is more like a classic painting instead of the cubism painting afterwards like Girl with a Mandolin (although Girl with a Mandolin was only painted 6 years later). I consider Picasso's works presenting us the momentous change between the classic and modern art during the 1900s. I like the most about this painting is that Picasso clearly describe the inner emotions of the guitarist ,which is sadness and helpless, from his face.
