Humanizing Art

These art pieces go off of an idea discussed in class: the fact that when you inspect closer, things aren’t always what they seem.  I like the idea that humans, who are typically the artist, become the art as well.  Because art is expression, this makes a lot of sense to me.   The link where I found these images provides further examples of cool art including complicated cut out figures out of paper (I’ve posted one below).  I particularly like those pictures because it creates 3D out of 2D and really makes you wonder, “is there something more to what I’m looking at.”

One thought on “Humanizing Art

  1. You have provided a nice analogy about a rationale for self-portraits or inclusion of the artist. Good art often has the characteristics of a surface level reading and a sub-level reading that encourages the viewer to have a deep investigation into the work.
