Man Ray intent

his intent was not to supply the viewer with all the information. Also to document relationship between objects, paintings and photos.

Man Ray's Multiple Exposures

Man Ray's multiple Exposure images create almost an optical illusion. As a viewer I question whether the objects were photographed together or if they were combined negatives during printing. This illusion causes the viewer to look more closely at the photographs and question reality.

Hopper

you could use this lesson to talk about math concepts by talking about geometric shapes, parallel lines, as well as spatial relationships.

My shanty

the similarities between these two paintings are the style in which they are painted. The brush strokes share the same texture patterns.  The difference is the perspective. The jack in the pulpit is a extreme close up of the form while the shanty is a wide view and shows the whole landscape.

Identify: Hopper

To connect this peice to math I would teach about foreshortening and the different perspectives when drawing. Students would learn how to measure in order to create a realistic perspective.  The discussion of parallel lines and repetition of the windows would be discussed as well.

Compare: O'keefe

O'Keefe's paintings are usually connected to southwest motifs. I appreciate the variety in the gallery. I was made aware of other subject matter that she painted. The way she uses color and shape to depict natural forms is recognizable to even people who do not know a lot of artists. I appreciate her changes within her color palette.

Horace pippin

you might need to know the time period this was painted. Why he choose this setting and where it is, who these people are to each other. By looking at the expression of the characters you could try to take on there current mood. How they are feeling, why they are there, how they got there and do they plan to stay

Connect and emphathize

First I noticed the clothing era and style. I then considered their economic background due to the location and the items found within. If I were to imagine myself as one of the characters I would be the lady in the chair quilting. I can imagine rocking in my chair as I shared life lessons with those in the room.
