Show me your final four!
Avery did an excellent job with making his personal interests a strong part of his pictures. I especially love the strong sense of movement that he shows in his second picture of the moment-to- moment motorcycle jump over the road in the desert. His road trip in picture number three shows unity, which means that all of the parts work together as a whole. The final picture uses magazine collage and oil pastels to create a pattern. A pattern is when the artist repeats an object or design in an oganized way.
It is interesting to note that although the students needed to select only one art principle for each picture, they found that many pictures have more than one art principle used in the composition.
Do you see evidence of this in any of Avery's pictures?
