Black smoke // ceramic sculpture Very limited colour palette and line work on the body of the bust suggests theres a deeper and more serious issue/meaning. The way the black smoke has been portrayed 'as hair' as well as having a more serious issue is clever. The way the facial expressions are shown and how the smoke leads into the mouth also gives us a sense of deeper meaning - pollution and how its affecting us
This ceramic sculpture has motifs and symbols incorporated into the person i.e. head of a bird with its feathers as the hair of the person. These motifs are strong symbolism of the artist or subjects interests, likes or other motifs. There is a limited pastel colour palette as well as line work carving to create effective textures. The way the person is positioned (hand on chest, facing away as well as the bird facing away) gives the artwork a sense of deeper meaning/further emotions.
Gianlorenzo Bernini, Bust of Louis XIV, marble, 1665, the Versailles Palace, Paris. It has been called the “grandest piece of portraiture of the baroque age”. Extraordinary amounts of attention detail in achieving textures of materials, hair and other features, no colour palette used (creating seriousness of bust). Marble?- suggests wealth and the fact that the face is facing away suggests wealth also as well as superiority
The use of the various shades of grey and black are very symbolic and really show true sympathy and emotions. The use of sharp lines is effective in showing theres a deep message. It makes me want to sympathise with the girl. The textures are very human/life like giving it a real feeling.
Sea Goddess Figure, painted ceramic bust. Use of extra ceramic material to create shapes to represent parts of identity and to make up who you are as a person. This is also expressed through the use of colour and decorative carving and line work. This creates a real life texture. There is a contrast between smooth and detailed textures
Ceramic bust Thorn Series. Hailey Josselyn Limited colour palette (monochromatic) perhaps symbolising a mood/feeling. Thorns in hair add to the 'dull' mood/feeling. Facial features: Eyes looking down (away) adding to the dull mood. I can use these techniques (symbols representing one part of my identity and monochromatic colours to show mood/feeling)
