do you know edvard munch ?
|The Scream, 1893|
certainly you have seen or heard of this infamous piece of painting but some of you might not be aware of who the artist is.
the artist is edvard munch.
an norwegian artist who is known to be one of the most influential artist for expressionism movement;
also best known for his composition , the scream.
themes he covered in his paintings were usually quite emotional like life cycle, death, misery, anxiety and love.
nevertheless, it was these (following) particular works that drawn me to him.
|Woman in Three Stages, 1894|
representing a woman in her three stages of life;
conversely in a chronological order from left to right.
|Red and White, 1894|
|The Dance of Life, 1900|
the woman in white symbolizes purity, innocence
the woman in red represents passion, love, happiness
the women in black, gazing jealously represents old age.
these particular paintings are significance to me;
in terms of using my imagination and then interpreting and exploited them into the three stages/outfits for my Stranger to Ourselves collection.
