Where Art Thou Flowers?

Through the search toolbox, I have searched the key term "flowers". Over the last few years, I have a strong passion for flowers. I selected seven flowers from the Korean Art Museum Association, and seven flowers from the Yale Center of British Art. The reason why I put these specific images together is because they all spoke to me. When initially looking through the images from the Korean Art Museum Association, many of these images were modern, and very unique and different in its own way. This is the kind of art I really enjoy. When looking through other images, the images of flowers from Yale Center of British Art really stood out to me. These images were the complete opposite of the images from the Korean Art Museum Association. The images from the second museum were not as modern, were more ancient, and have more history behind them. I found that these images were complete opposites, but what a great way to look at how these images are different and how time has changed. As stated above, the images I selected have different meanings. As for the images selected from the Korean Art Museum, these images are more modern, and are more diverse. The "White Flowers" image is more focused on technology and how you can engineer a certain material in order to portray like a certain object (in this case, a flower). It is a very simple piece of art, yet it is very different from other artwork. The same goes for the "Their Flowers 51" image. The images titled "Let Me be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in You Mind2", "Let Me be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Mind", and "CHANDELIER" are all images that embrace bright, vibrant colours. These images really emphasize how beautiful flowers really can be. Having bright colours really captured my eyes, which is why I selected these particular images. The last two images of "Taking a Lesson from the Past - Flower Face" and "Roentgen's Garden" really emphasize abstract art. The "Taking a Lesson from the Past - Flower Face" image relates to a human head but it is wired with different flowers. As for the "Roentgen's Garden" image, it seems to represent a tree with flowers branding off of it. If you were to show someone else this image, they may say it represents something completely different. Now, we will examine the images from Yale Center of British Art. When looking at all of these seven images, it seems that each image is a photograph of a painting. All of these flowers have colour of some sort - some brighter than others. As well, the flowers look "fresh" to me. If I had to describe it, that is what I would say. As well, they look "delicate" to me. There is a large difference between these images compared to the other images. This relates back to course concepts. First off, times have significantly changed. As stated above, the Korean Art Museum Association flowers seem to be more modern, whereas the Yale Center of British Art images seem to be more ancient. This just shows how times have changes throughout the years. As well, if you were to give an individual all of these images to look at, their interpretation would be different from my interpretation and from others interpretations. We interpret things based on our own thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Each image tells its own story, but when others look and describe an image, the story can easily be changed. As well, technology changes the way we perceive things. Yes, I have just created an online museum to look at. However, if were looking at these images in person, we would see things we may not see through the computer screen. All in all, seeing the difference between images based on the same topic (i.e., flowers) is very interesting to look at. The visual analyses are similar in ways, but are very much different from one another. This just shows how art comes in many different forms, shapes, colours, and much more!
