The full title of this gallery would not fit with the additional "Clare 209 Sum 1." The entire name of this gallery is actually "Brighten My Day."
This gallery consists of works of art that are although extremely bright in color, may not entice you to feel "bright" and happy on the inside. They can still make you feel mixed emotions, even though they are filled with color.
The paragraphs below are personal descriptions and emotions of certain art works. If there is any type of description directed toward a work of art, it will also be located underneath the work. --- Although the name of this work is "Pleasant Landscape 9056," I still feel little anxious and confused when looking at this painting. The deep red makes me feel uneasy, while the yellow curls that extract out towards the audience makes me feel a little attacked. Not to mention, the trees that are in the painting look like they were done by a young toddler, very simple. And even though I have these feelings, I still feel drawn toward this painting... It may just be because of the bright colors.
My favorite work is the "Good Luck-Lotus No. 1." The picture is beautiful that include a soft texture with warm, welcoming colors. At first glance it seems to be a pleasant water scene with a lone lotus floating. Then after a few seconds, most would recognize the outlet to the right of the painting and understand the scene takes place inside a house. The reason I enjoy this painting so much is the irony that takes place within the title. Although this lonely lotus may be "good luck," it's inside a flooded house. Having the house flood doesn't seem to be such good luck to me.
Hyun Mi Yoo portrays beautiful work, again, through, "Good Luck-Pomegranates on the Table No. 2." The way the art is so crisp by using closed lines that are closed and sharp, is amazing. This work is very detailed. So detailed, it looks realistic. Yoo mainly uses primary colors. With the light blue hue for the background, the red is able to come out at the audience and present itself as the subject of the painting.
Siyon Jin's work, "Flow," uses horizontal lines. This is an example of a piece of work that although the lines are horizontal, they do not make the picture appear to be static. When I originally looked at this art I was again intrigued by the colors. Yet when looking deeper, I couldn't help but to feel uncomfortable due to the cluster of lines near the center of the work.
