Art 1 – Mark Tobey – in-class 9/2

Standard

This post is for in-class work – no need to preview.

LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING TWO VIDEOS AND THE WEBSITE ON MARK TOBEY (1890-1976).

Retrospective site

Look at the quality and character of Tobey’s line work. Notice how he arranges the lines for spatial and emotional effect.
What does Tobey mean by this: “On pavements and the bark of trees I have found whole worlds.”  Is he simply copying tree bark or is he doing something else?
