How can art create different meanings, in society?

An art not only enhances understanding of the world around us, but it also broadens our perspective on traditional values that we hold today in modern society. Arts give us the creativity to express ourselves and in result creating meaning and value through master pieces of art work in all shapes and sizes. All this while challenging our intellect

The type of style van Gogh would like to work was as a post-impressionist painter and the reason towards this style of work was due to wanting to create art works which held noble beauty, emotional honestly and bold colour all in one.

Van Gogh learned his skills and developed his ideas in ...view middle of the document...

The actual piece was made with oil on canvas painting.

The ideas that are being explored by van Gogh in this painting are ideas of creativity, movement in honestly and a splash of bold colours which come all together to create a wide range of a flowing master piece and I feel van Gogh was trying to communicate a meaning and value of the beauty of harmony within mother nature as he has created this message through natural sources we see in our everyday life’s. This can make us asked ourselves do we get all tangled up in the ugly webs of stress and fair of our everyday life’s such as exams, bills or loneliness that we forget sometimes to take a deep breath and be thankful for the beautiful and breath taking day we are not certain to see again each and every day? This art piece really catch’s my eye due to the starry sky and the texture and surfaces the sky is creating through the shapes and movements van Gogh as produced.

Textual and visual signs resulting also in most of his famous pictures to include words and images at the same time. Also to add he developed his skills by using repetition as he found to learn that this was very important due to informing his multiple copies of his most amazing pieces and in a whole creating a theme of a unique still René Magritte had produced through handwork and creativity. His mother’s body was fished out the river with her white dress covering her face and this may suggest why René Magritte’s art work shows a meaning of hidden thoughts and feelings as some of his art works have white material blocking certain objects such as a face.

One of “René Magritte’s” famous art works was “personal values” and it was Produced 1952. In this work I can see many large objects within a room such as a “comb, glass, and fire match stick” filled with cloudy wall paper. The composition of this art work a form of a strange distorted unbalance of images across the art work creating a rhythm of surrealism. The formal elements which are used in this piece of art are a great range of colours, scale and proportion towards the objects within the room and great texture overall when it comes to “attention to detail” with the surfaces and patterns on the room and large objects themselves, this really gives an effect of making the work look very random and distorted yet holding a hidden...
