Art & Music (Spring 2022) - Art Project

The goal for this project is to emulate any artist that you choose using any technique or combination of techniques.

This project is inspired by the works of Irish modern artist Sean Scully. I wanted to do something in muted colors, that pulls the eye in horizontal and vertical directions. This was primarily achieved by working through the stamp function, with some pen commands to fill in the negative space in an eye-pleasing way.

The artist that I was going for is Monet. I really love impressionist art because of how the abstractions make you feel when you look at them. I decided to try and go for a nature impressionist painting since nature is a place that I hold close to myself.

I never knew who Sean scully was as an artist but your artwork does a great job replicating his overall technique!

Hey, I liked the art! I really enjoyed the impressionist unit we did, so it's nice seeing another one of these, especially with such a lovely picture to go with it.

I was inspired by Damien Hirst, specifically his paintings of trees with flowers blooming off of them that were actually just painted dots.

I loved this because of the different timing of the images and how you were able to program them to align like so.

For this moving work of art, I was inspired by Kathryn Shagas, who paints abstract works of art based on rhythms. She has a polyrhythm series, and inspired by that I made my own polyrhythm work of art.

I really like the abstractedness of the petals. The tree and the petals are great to look at and I like how they are all not just one flat color.

My goal for this piece was to show the audience two perspectives in the same piece. The perspective I am referring to in this case is how one views the world. One may see the world through a small tunnel or through a looking window, both providing different ways of viewing the world. I used the impression technique we learned in class to make an impression of a very scenic view from one of my favorite places, and then using a palette, I took some inspiration from my pollock project and added raindrops to my impression. I finished the art with the two perspectives, one you can see through the circle and one you can see through the rectangle. Depending on how you look at it, you can see a glimpse of a beautiful scene with rain in the way, or the full scenic view with some rain.

This piece made me smile. It's really cool how you have your sprite change color with the beat. Really fun!

I wanted to emulate the style of Sea Hoon. Similar to Seurat, he was an impressionist painter. However, Sea Hoon likes to emulate computer pixels by using blocks instead of dots or lines. In this project, I try to recreate a picture of a mountain using Sea Hoon's technique.

Good job! I like how the longer I look at it, the more complete the picture becomes!

This project emulates a "Blended Colors Painting" by Mary Julia Craft, while also putting my own spin to the piece. The color palette was selected specifically to reflect the colors in her painting. I decided to add a few rows of flower patterns whose colors blend in the opposite direction to give the piece some contrast and texture. I hope you enjoy!

I really enjoyed the impressionist assignment we had done before, so I tried to add a bit of a twist. In this project, I had added a focus point in the painting, done with a painting with a smaller dot size, with the unfocused area around it to have less detail with bigger hexagons. The white building in the picture can be seen with far greater detail than the other buildings.

I really enjoyed this work! The circle reminded me of looking through a camera while you're taking a picture, adding more to what you said about perspective!

For this project I combined the techniques learned during the Rothko unit with recently learned sound techniques. I created an audio-visual piece in which a Rothko-inspired color field moves in time with a self-produced simple drum beat. I find watching the shapes move along to the music very satisfying and hope you will as well. Let me know what you think!

Also, the green flag resets the position of the shapes and allows the user to input a custom beats per minute (bpm). The space bar is used to start the beat.

Loved this. I've always liked symmetrical patterns, and this piece does a nice job of incorporating symmetry without being too bland. I also liked that you used a blue-centric color palette, again limiting an aspect of the piece without affecting its value.
My goal for this piece was to create procedurally generated art inspired by some of the colorful collages of Takashi Murakami. The piece start with a an explosion of lines from the center, and then the polygons are filled in with colors by moving the Sprite to random locations and using the fill block.

I really like how the animations go with beat and that you give the user the option to change the bpm of the piece.
