DURING A COMBAT - Mohammad Raza Khan

This gallery focuses on the motion and rhythm during a battle. Throughout history, warfare has changed people's lives and the world. War is like a sport, one side wins and the other side loses. Each side fights for their beliefs.The only difference is that a person plays reluctantly since their life is at stake.

The way this pieces looks depicts an early combat scene to me. Naked men are portrait in attacking pose, and they are using swords, axe, knife, bow and arrow to fight each other. The movement in this piece is shown by a rhythm. The men and the weapons make up the rhythm, both are in striking position. I think this describes what happens during a battle. In the foreground, a person is a about to be killed on the left, and a person is already killed in the right. This could’ve also been a sport scene since all the men are jacked. In the center, two men are holding a chain with their left hand, which I think could be the trophy.
This piece shows the use of horses in a battle. To me, it looks like a human vs human on a horse. The human on foot looks like he is trying to defend himself by holding up his shield, while the men on the horses are in a striking position.
In this art, variety is used well. There is so much going on in the painting, but the main attention is taken by the two individuals in the center due to their scale. This scene looks like a religious battle. In the painting, a sun is painted behind the every good individual’s head and making them look more handsome than the bad people.
There is so much action going on in this view. Fleet of boats are clashed against each other. People are using all sort of weapons to kill one another. Groups of people are commanded by a leader to attack the opposing side. People are attacking, swimming, and defending. In the center, it looks like one side's leader is facing the other leaders. The rhythm in this painting is shown by the repeated use of the boats, and the people.
This piece portrays the strong use of movement. Triadic color scheme is used in this painting. Two individuals dressed different in the middle shows that they’re the kings, or leaders. The weak is trying to get away from the strong one. Among them is a girls who is running for her own life. Every individual is in motion, even the bird that is flying at the top mid-left. I think this is some sort of chase scene.
The texture in this painting is soft and smooth. The use of proportion in here creates the depth. Analogous color scheme is used here. This painting reminds me of the Titanic. I think unarmed people were trying to escape in a middle of a battle, but were caught. Some have died, while others are getting helped to get back in a boat.
In this painting, the left side looks stronger, and the right looks weak. We can tell which side is winning by the dead bodies in the foreground. Based on their facial expressions, the right side is surprise of how strong and well equipped the left side is. This painting also shows the cultural differences. A triadic color scheme is used in this piece.
There is a good use of contrast and saturation in this painting. The sky is brighten, and the dead bodies are darken. There is battle going on in the background. The soldiers are pointing out to the commander of what is going on. I think the soldiers are waiting for a command from their commander. To me, the commander looks like he is confident about winning the war.
The result of a war is always depressing. There is a lot of casualties in this painting. Soldiers and horses have died and injured. Friends and families have come to find their loved one. Contrast is displayed here in the sky. One side is darker than the other. The use of proportion shows the realism, and the depth.
Perhaps, my favorite one. Several principles and elements have been used in this piece. The texture here is rough, and blurred. Symmetrical balance is used here. Proportion use shows the realism and the depth in here. Contrast is used to make the subjects stand out. The focus is on the man in the center, it is shown here by enlarging the man than the others. The scheme of the color is mostly complementary. I think the artist made this painting this way to show the post result of a war, not only by what is being portrayed, but also through the use of principles and elements of art.
