Artist Name Danielle Pusey
The texture in the college is the glue on the eyelashes. This piece is my favorite because she made one side of her face negative . She used a lot of geometric shapes. She has all the colors on color wheel. The other half she made blue. This piece is interesting . I like the way her lips are pink, she is sticking out her tongue and it looks like she used ribbons as her tongue. She utilized the, entire background. She used strategies to create negative shapes by using different colors. No, The composition is not balance because one side of her face is asymmetrical . The Visual weight is distributed to the left side of her face which is more active. The rhythm uses an ice tone of blue on the left side of her face, leading my eyes around the picture plane. The primary focal point is the left side of her face. You seem to focus on it more my eyes directly look at her left eyelash on her face. The artist create a scale of 2 dimensional which takes up half of the collage. On the left side, there is cool toned colors, with blue, dark blue, light gray and dark green as well as light green. On the right side, uses warm toned colors: brown , orange, pink and yellow. They are used to show the different shades of the face. she is using expressive colors to make her collage unique. The collage has an overall cool temperature by using a lot of blue, dark blue, light blue and light gray and dark green light green. Yes, she uses complementary colors, They are blue with orange and red with green. The concept of the design is showing that the person who did the collage is unique by using the colors on the color wheel like blue with orange and red ,green yellow, brown , pink. The successful and unsuccessful aspects of the design : The successful aspects are the way she uses different colors on her self portrait to show that she is unique: there are no unsuccessful aspects. She doesn’t use negative/ positive, space or figure/ ground ,relationships, but there is a contrast between hot and cool colors, there is relationship of shapes .The eye and the nose and month are given emphasis. It doesn’t have harmony or balance because the hot colors are on the right side and they come forward ; the cool colors are on the left side. The meaning she is trying to give is silliness and fun. She does this by sticking out her tongue and winking her eye. The colors she uses are happy colors.
