Review Of Downtown Artist Co Op

1143 words - 5 pages

I paid a visit to the art gallery downtown, by the name of Downtown Artist Co-op, and I must say, it was a most pleasant experience. As I entered, I was instantly greeted by the curators. After I was greeted, I explained to them why I had come in. Having mentioned that I was there as part of an assignment, they were happy to have me and said that students come in all the time to do reviews. Following the greeting and introduction, I began to journey around the gallery.

Continuing on, I learned that he detailed the subject's outline with sharp black contour lines, which gave the drawn in effect. Her skin was the color of golden red, as if she were drawn by colored pencil. She contrasted with the other colors featured in the image; vibrant shades of blue, which flowed down from the wall and onto the floor. Gaining inspiration from this image, I decided to delve more into the works of Cliff Whittaker. He was very generous, as he continued to talk with me more about other productions he had featured in the gallery.
"Room with a Blue Floor," another photograph, by Cliff also makes use of the wonderful effect of natural lighting. The light filters elegantly through the windows located behind the subject on both sides; almost mirroring each other. The subject, a nude woman stands in the middle of the room, covering herself respectively; giving the impression of innocence. The floor she stands on is well-illuminated by the light that flows in behind her. Moreover, surrounding the subject on the floor in a circle, is a blue tone that fades into the light. The hue is almost a baby blue, which adds even more...
