Compelled To Tell: Form

January 29

Compelled To Tell: Form
January 29 – May 19, 2019
During the making process, multiple visual possibilities are resonating in the mind of an artist. Simultaneously, instinct and conscious thought compel the artist. Ideally, the artwork soon has an independent energy. Visually, the term form can be applied to an entire artwork, identifying the work as either a painting or a sculpture for example. Within an artwork, form refers to actual shapes and spaces in a sculpture or the illusion of three-dimensional shapes in a painting. How an artist chooses to model form, perhaps by maintaining a natural appearance or simplifying and exaggerating shapes expressively, is unique to that artist. By observing form in an artwork, we can identify an artist’s personal style and interpret meaning through the aesthetic sensations looking at form creates.
