HOW TO LOOK at ART

DESCRIPTION - The following process of evaluating and critiquing artwork is one of the ways that a viewer can come some understanding of the work they are viewing. Modify or embellish the process or use one of your own choosing which is appropriate for you. There is not one rule in how to look at art. Everyone’s aesthetic is differentIn the initial stage of looking at an artwork, a visual inventory is made by the viewer. Design elements are noted (line, shape, color, space, texture, value). Media or technique used for expression in the work is also noted (paint, clay, paper, metal, etc.) At this point there is no mention of the subject matter, there is no judgments made. This step only serves to accomplish an inventory of what is seen. ANALYSIS -

INTERPRETATION -  An attempt is made in at this stage to determine the issue or concept which seems to unify all of the separate traits of the art work. Based upon the description and the analysis, what is the artist communicating?

JUDGMENT - The viewer may form a judgment about the work of art. The judgment is based upon the description, analysis and the interpretation. Personal philosophies, background and feelings are now taken into account. At this stage focus on the relationship among the design element just inventoried. Design principles are noted (balance, rhythm, contract, tension, proportion, emphasis). For example, color and shape (elements) may be interacting in a such a way that balance and contrast (principles) are achieved. Size, shape, color and texture relationships are among those distinguished.
