Art Foundations: Self Evaluation on GRID DRAWING. Introduction to ARTnews magazine and ABSTRACTION in the 21st Century – the GOLDEN AGE of ABSTRACTION! Review of Color Schemes too.

Abstraction is NOT as easy or simple as you might think… what are you thinking about as you see this work by contemporary artist Chris Martin’s “Seven Pointed Star for Isaac Hayes”, 2009, COURTESY MITCHELL-INNES & NASH, NEW YORK, ARTnews link to magazine article in the picture – go ahead… click it!

What was the most interesting part of the ARTnews article that you read about the Golden Age of Abstraction? Do you think that creating an abstract work of art with a meaning to support it is an easy thing to do? Why of why not? Please write your thoughts down in your COMMENTS section of your GOALS SHEET.

GOALS:

What are you struggling with regarding the use of the ARTIST STATEMENT? (Link to the HANDBOOK HERE – PAGES 28 and 29… right Bryan?). What is challenging about the ideas of putting to WORD what you were trying to express in ART? Talk about your works with your classmates… maybe the conversation will help.
