Transcript of Copy of Grade 7 Hundertwasser Artist Analysis Summative Task

Hundertwasser Thank you for your attention! Hundertwasser hated straight lines:
look at some of his quotes about lines. There are mostly circles and round rectangles. His style: colors His style: lines His style: shapes By Kwangmin Lee His style: contrast Bright Colors Dark Colors Bibliography My favorite artwork of Hundertwasser Color Lines Analizing his artwork on: http://katalindrake.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/15_hp692_friedensreich-hundertwasser_rain-falls-far-from-us.jpg
http://www.allposters.com/IMAGES/RSS/Huwa_J1041.jpg The colors have fabulous color range.
The colors of backgrounds are mostly bright colors, and this gives a soft, bright mood. For Example: He has mostly bright colors, which give objects a focal point, 3-D feeling and make them look advanced. For example, the characters are colored in by bright colors, which advance their positions. "When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many dream together it is the beginning of a new reality." He has repeting colors on simillar objects, such as tree; a green outline and a yellow color inside. The colors he uses the most are yellow, red, green, black, white and blue; 4 colors are advancing colors. He doesn't have much of a tonal range. Subject matter "Patterned works with their haunting and rich colours are dependent on the decorative tradition." -Grove art dictionary ''The straight line leads to the downfall of humanity.''
"Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilisation."
The straight line is ungodly. He doesn't have straight lines in his work. He tries making rectangles have round lines, and mostly uses circles to avoid using straight lines. The lines are drawn very rigidly which shows depth, as if they are contour lines. For example: The lines are drawn repeatedly vertically and horizontally to form a face or a building, The shapes mostly consist an object, not the lines consisting and the shapes going in them, The shapes overlap on themselves, so that they would give a 3-D feeling, depth and have a harmony between each shapes. The shapes are quite symmetrical on some parts. The bright colors are mostly the main object or theme of the artwork. The dark colors are background colors, which was done to emphasize the main object. Contrast 1: using different tones of colors Contrast 2: different type of colors In almost every wort of Hundertwasser, everything is separated by different colors; and the repetition or non-repetition of colors shows which object is which. What does he draw about? A major number of Hundertwasser's artwork are about real-life landscapes, buildings. However, it seems to be that Hundertwasser had been inspired from actual life, then added his imaginations in it. Shapes Contrast "Black Girl Discovery in the Kingdom of the Toros" The color on my favorite artwork of Hundertwasser is mainly orange and green. However, while the orange part advances, the parts which I am assuming they are flowers, have different colors. And because of the overlapping of colors, it really gives a 3-D feeling and looks like an organic shape. On this piece, the lines took an important role, because at the top, the lines gave a curve around. And it divided the overlapping on the flower 'petals'. Finally, Hundertwasser has put lines at different thickness on the orange wall, and I think it was a good idea to do that, because they look like shadows of the flowers. The shapes on this work is mostly circles, and some rectangles, but not with straight lines. This shows one of his art styles, which is using a lot of circles, and drawing all the shapes without straight lines. On the other hand, there is tha chess pattern, and this also shows a lot of rectangles with round sides. There is a lot of contrast on this artwork. First, there is one at the chess pattern as the form of different tones of color. Next, There is the contrast between the overlapped colors on flowers. Finally, there is the contrast between the orange wall and the background. Why did I choose this as my favorite artwork? I have chosen the "Black Girl Discovery in the Kingdom of the Toros" as my favorite artwork of Hundertwasser, because of a few reasons. First of all, I think that the shapes on this piece reflects on Hundertwasser's mostly used shapes, and the contrast using different tones of color is also one of the features Hundertwasser often used. And finally, the chess pattern is a pattern Hundertwasser uses very much. So to sum up, I chose this artwork because of its harmony bewteen the colors, and its reflection on hundertwasser's style.
