This week we start into the new series on formalistic art. What is formalistic art you might ask? A piece of art's form is composed of its basic elements: Line, shape, value, texture, and color. These elements constitute the fundamental language used by formalist art critics to examine and analyze works of art. This is a method of looking at the art and not really looking at the message or worldview. Rather, it looks at the art as a piece and examines it basically devoid of its meaning.
In this episode we are joined by John Blinn, another on of the brother-in-laws, and we talk about some particular pieces of art and the idea of lines. What roe do lines play in art? What do lines do? What do they communicate? What is an implied line? Are they helpful and well done?
We finish off the episode by playing a line game. We describe these pictures of lines and even come up with out own stories about these types of lines. They will be on the Facebook page and please give us your story about your line!
Here are links to the images we talked about in this cast. The line game we played is on our FaceBook page...
