Your paper must be typewritten, minimum 750 words in length, double-spaced (or 1.5) with a standard 12-point (or 11) font. Submit it as an attached Microsoft Word document (.doc or .docx file) to my Email address by the due date. Do not do research on the artwork. Write in your own words from your direct encounter with the artwork. Look for what is unusual and distinctive about the way the artwork is made, its formal qualities. What are the techniques used to structure the artwork? How do the composition, approach to applying materials, the colors, textures, context, and the relationship between the different formal elements of the artwork challenge and surprise us? How these formal gestures contribute to or interact with our understanding of the artwork? Your paper should discuss how the artwork employs formal elements by using concrete references to specific details. What do those formal strategies bring to your experience of the artwork? Remember that it is an analysis. It is the quality of your observation and the clarity of your articulation of it that count. Points will be deducted for poor grammar, punctuation and spelling. Proofread your paper carefully before handing it in. Useful approaches to this assignment: Take particular care in describing accurately what you see before starting to consider your thoughts on it. Try to approach the artwork with an open mind – that is, avoid making quick judgments and let things seep in. Remember that making an opinion too quickly will stop you from looking any further into what’s actually going on in the artwork. Allow the piece to be itself and let yourself engage with it. Remember that these happenings are about paying close attention to things you might not have noticed otherwise. You may need to identify what’s troubling you; possibly the key to the experience resides there. Try and really look and ask yourself questions rather than settle for quick answers.
