My favorites pieces

These are mostly all the pieces of art and architecture that I hope to see in person one day. I love artwork. It's amazing to see what people can create with a paintbrush and colors, or what someone is able to build with concrete.

Kaldor Public Art Project 5: Moorman and Paik 1976, Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik, 22 March - 1 April 1976, From the collection of: Kaldor Public Art Projects
This art project was chosen for the picture of the Sydney Opera House. This structure was made using concrete, glass, and granite materials. In this picture, they chose to represent it as a drawing with uses of lines to construct the "shells" of the opera house and the many people. There is texture used to make the clouds. The Sydney Opera House is a unique building for it's shape.
The Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh, 1889, From the collection of: MoMA The Museum of Modern Art
Starry Night uses many different forms of formal elements such as: line, form, shape, color, and tone/texture. The way that Van Gogh uses loose and organic shapes to make the swirls of the wind with the rolling hills is a wonder to look at. He uses lines to help create the textures in the painting. For this painting, he used oil paints, and I think that if Van Gogh had used a different media or material, it wouldn't have looked this good. Some may call his depiction of a night sky unusual, but I call it brilliant.
Irises, Vincent van Gogh, 1889, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
Irises by Van Gogh uses more oil painting on a canvas to create a field of irises. He uses lines to create the flowers, texture to make you feel that you are looking at a field of flowers growing, color to give the painting a more realistic feel. He doesn't paint a typical painting of flowers growing. His painting feels more organic and loose like Starry Night.
The Torment of Saint Anthony, Michelangelo Buonarroti, c. 1487–88, From the collection of: Kimbell Art Museum
The Torment of Saint Anthony is a oil and tempera painting of Saint Anthony assuming to be ambushed or tormented by demons or devils. There is a very defined use of line and color in this painting. It is clear in the painting where the horizon stops, and the colors help to set a tone for the painting.
Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, September 1888, From the collection of: Dallas Museum of Art
The Cafe Terrace at Night is another oil painting from Van Gogh. However, this is not the fully finished painting that I wanted (I couldn't find on with all the colors). This one does help to see the lines used to create the texture of the cobbled street. The fully colored painting shows vibrant colors like the yellows used around the cafe, and the dark blues and blacks used for the night sky and surrounding buildings.
