Art 1 – Surreal Perspective – due Thurs. Mar. 17

Standard

 

Flying Houses by Laurent Chehere

With your next sketchbook drawing in mind (to create your own surreal, dreamlike world through perspective) look at the 4 following links and comment on what image interests you at each link. Make observations about the technical aspects of making a surreal scene and the emotional effect. (Note, the modern architecture at the last site is not surreal but some of the buildings are so unusual, they inspire the imagination. Comment on the technical feats and the resultant emotional effect.)

Modern Architecture

In your sketchbook drawing, show a building (exterior or interior) in perspective with surrealist components, to create an emotional, imaginative, or fantastical effect.

Some standards for a surrealist effect: change of scale, context, altering of physical characteristics.

Finish your drawing with full shading in black and white and color, for expressive effect. Your work should reflect at least one full hour of drawing time.

For your interest, Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory” and the Surrealist movement:
