Title: Design: The process and result of structuring the elements of visual form; composition


1

Design The process and result of structuring
the elements of visual form composition What???
2
Composition The bringing together of parts or
elements to form a whole the structure,
organization or total form of a work of art
3
Parts or Elements

Elements of Art line, shape, form,
texture, color, value, space
What makes up a work of art
4
Structure or Organization

Principles of Design proportion, balance,
emphasis, pattern/repetition, rhythm/movement,
contrast, variety, harmony/unity
What you do with the elements of art to
create a successful composition
5
Unity/Harmony An agreement that exists among the
elements in a design they look as though some
visual connection beyond mere chance has caused
them to come together
Ways to achieve unity
Proximity Repetition Continuation
6
Proximity simply putting the elements close
together
Wayne Thiebaud. Paint Cans. 1990.
7
Repetition Something that repeats in various
parts of the design to relate the parts to
each other.
Edgar Degas. The Millinery Shop. 1890.
8
Continuation Something continues usually a
line or an edge. The viewers eye is carried
smoothly from one element to the next.
Balthus. The Living Room. 1943.
9
Emphasis (focal point) Any forcefulness that
gives importance or dominance (weight) to some
feature or features of an artwork something
singled out, stressed, or drawn attention to.
Often, emphasized elements are used to direct
and focus attention on the most important parts
of a composition its focal point.
Ways to achieve emphasis
Contrast Isolation Placement
10
Contrast Whatever interrupts an overall feeling
or pattern automatically attracts the eye by its
difference
Ex Color, size, shape etc.
11
Isolation By simply offsetting one element of
a composition, it grabs the viewers attention.
The element doesnt need to be different from
the other elements in the work just placed in a
different spot.
12
Placement If many elements point to one item,
our attention is directed there, and a focal
point results
Jan Vermeer. The Music Lesson. 1664
13
Balance the arrangement of elements to create a
sense of visual stability in a work of art
Three types of balance
Symmetrical Asymmetrical Radial
14
Symmetrical the organization of parts of a
composition so that one side mirrors, or
duplicates the other. With the two sides being
so much alike, there is an obvious visual visual
importance to whatever element is placed on the
center axis.
Symmetrical balance is rarer in painting than in
architecture. In fact, relatively few paintings
would fit a strict definition of symmetry.
15
Asymmetrical the organization of parts of a
composition so that one side does not duplicate
the other. Balance is achieved with dissimilar
objects that have equal weight or equal eye
attraction. A large, simple shape is balanced by
a smaller, complicated shape.
16
Radial all the elements circle out from a
common central point. A radially balanced design
is also symmetrically balanced.
17
Rhythm refers to a regular repetition of
elements of art (shape, color, line, form) to
produce the look and feel of movement. It is
often achieved through the careful placement of
repeated components which invite the viewer's eye
to jump rapidly or glide smoothly from one to
the next.
Ways to achieve rhythm
Repetition
18
Repetition Something that repeats in various
parts of the design to relate the parts to each
other. Rhythm involves a clear repetition of
elements that are the same or only slightly
modified.
Piet Mondrian. Broadway Boogie Woogie. 1943.
Bridget Riley. Drift No.2. 1966.
19
Proportion refers to the relative sizesize
measured against other elements or against some
standard. Proportion is closely tied to
emphasis.
20
Large and Small Scale Together
Unexpected or Exaggerated Scale
21
Find at least 2 Principles of Design that you
feel are clearly illustrated in the artwork below
and describe how they are achieved?
Winslow Homer. Snap the Whip. 1872.
22
Contrast/Variety incorporating differences in
elements to enhance the interest in a work of
art. Variety creates visual excitement and acts
to counter unity.The sameness of too much unity
is boring, and the diversity of uncontrolled
variety is chaotic, but a balance between unity
and variety creates life in a work of art.
Jacob Lawrence. Going Home. 1946.
23
Pattern/Repetition the repetition of elements
or combinations of elements in a recognizable
organization.
Types of Pattern
Regular/Planned Irregular/Random
24
Regular Pattern the parts are repeated
accurately.
25
Irregular Pattern the parts are repeated, but
do not seem planned.
Claude Monet. Water Lillies. 1906.
Gustav Klimt. Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.
1907.
