In this week’s discussion, we will explore the relationship between form, content, and subject matter. As we discovered last week, two sculptures of a kiss can have quite different meanings.
Take a look at the sculptures by Giacometti and Moore in your text. Both pieces are good examples of the relationship between form, content, and subject matter. How do you feel the form of each sculpture expresses the content? What specific characteristics give us clues and communicate meaning?
Select a third work of art from the text and discuss how the form and content relate. Identify at least five visual elements and/or principles of design in your analysis of the third piece.
