Beautiful And Ugly Essay

788 words - 3 pages

Expressing oneself can often be a difficult task. Choosing whether printed word, oral presentation, or artistic endeavors are the most suited media can often be difficult. Often, however, more than one media may be used. An example of this is in the expression of an image. Images can be created through the use of printing or by using figurative language and tone. An image can also be expressed through artwork such as paintings and sculptures. Aside from both being used for commercial reasons, they are meant to express a feeling or idea they had within themselves.The two images that I have chosen are a cd cover from the band Garbage and a picture that Marylin Manson painted.

The other only thing on the picture is the words Beautiful Garbage. There are also numerous little, what it looks like, pieces of square flower scattered around in the shape of different flower pedals.The painting from Marylin Manson has a very different image than the first picture. It is a picture of a flower that stands alone. This flower has a white crackly wall in the background. The paper that this was painted on has a ripped outer edge. The edges look like the paper was old and worn.Colors have a very important role when you try to analyze or interpret a picture. Every picture is done that way for a reason. The garbage cd is a big red rose. The whole picture is full of pink, red and white colors. These colors make you think of beauty, love, and happiness and make you feel energetic, and...
