Motion

Sarah Williams This gallery shows that motion can be captured using multiple methods and mediums. All of the pieces involve an element of nature or human creation, which I feels is the best way to display movement. The gallery shows examples of art in motion throughout the ages. 

This piece captures the majestic movement of the eagle by stretching its body across the length of the building and making it appear as if it is just about to grab an object. The white cloud coming off of the eagle as it lands shows that it is descending quickly upon its prey.
This piece is intriguing because it clearly demonstrates movement through the use of overlapping images and defined brush stroke techniques. However, the movement is so dramatic and overemphasized that it causes the viewer to question what the painting is attempting to show. My guess is a long jumper, but I am still unsure.
This photograph captures movement through the blurring of the child's foot and dress. I appreciate this piece because the use of the black and white film makes the motion even more noticeable.
This piece is full of movement, both obvious and understood. The sails are bulging, implying that a strong wind is blowing, and the waves are about to crash against the shoreline. The use of swirling brush strokes and painted white wash shows that the waves are in motion.
This piece captures movement through the use of different line techniques and overlapping images. The thicker contour lines serve as the primary image while the lighter implied lines seem to show where the subject has been or is going. This overlapping technique creates depth and perspective.
This painting shows the movement of the wind through multiple elements. The trees and grass are painted to lean to the left of the work, and the girl's hair was painted to angle in the same direction. This technique demonstrates the power of the unseen force.
John Cheere has managed to capture movement in both of the bodies and the faces of these subjects. The skyward motion of Cain's right arm paired with the visible tension in the brothers' biceps and forearms convey desperation and intensity.
This piece captures the movement of smoke and fire as the volcano erupts. The depth created by varying the colors of the smoke shows the motion of the smoke. The rising sparks of the fire shows its movement and strength.
