Image of the piece I selected from the Brooklyn Museum
Why I choose that piece and how it relates to my idea of truth.
I choose this painting because I almost feel the wind while I first saw it. Unlike those normal painting describe sky this one is used a different point of view. It brings you between the cloud and faces the blue sky face to face not looking up to it. It brings me back to the memories I took the airplane every time I go back to China. I can see the cloud was so nearby and everything, the ship, the building seems so far away. The using of color is also really strong. Rather than using some transparent white to create cloud the artist choose to used a hard and heavy white gray and blue to create the value of the cloud. It makes the painting less realistic while makes everything more like a dream landscape.
From my personal point of view, I feel truth is a thing which can change in different people’s eyes and at different time. And the sky is the same. The sky is different in everyone’s eyes. You can get the opposite feeling while you see the sky from a different point of view. And the sky isn’t stable, it will change from time to time. That’s the reason why I feel this paint is combined with the theme of truth really well.
explanation of my wearable pieces design, use of materials, and how it relates to the piece you choose at the Brooklyn Museum.
I use the waste fabric from last semester. This is a soft and thin 100% cotton fabric. and I used the thread from the package when I buy a cloth. the cotton in clouds is also the waste cotton from last semester.
I used pins to stable all the cloud on my cloth to make this piece more usable. I can change the place of the cloud which is the idea pop out when I see the piece from Brooklyn Museum. The sky should be changeable and makes people see a different picture. So I didn’t sew those cloud on my dress. Another reason is I really hate waste of something, so I hope the dress I made can be worn in daily life. When I take out those clouds, It is just a normal white dress I can wear in daily life.
On the cloud, I used fabric paint. I didn’t make the brush stock really smooth. The artiste didn’t make the brush stock soft which is a point I like a lot. Those clouds seem more unrealistic but strong. And I used this element in my cloth.
