Good communication is a dialogue, a continuous loop.
“I like it when I\'m critiqued because it gives me feedback on things that I can improve on in my work, as well as a confidence boost when I receive positive feedback on my work. Critiquing is also helpful in creating well rounded developing artists because it gives them a chance to both show what they have learned thus ...far and to learn more about the principles of design, photography, and techniques to use on Photoshop and other programs used to create digital artwork.”
-Jennie Harper 2009
The message in my work is that emotions can easily overtake someone once a stressful or horrible event takes place. The woman in my pieces fell prey to her emotions of loneliness, longing, and despair after her husband was sent off to war in the armed forces. She constantly missed him and her missing grew and festered inside her until she eventually saw his loss of presence everywhere she went, including in everyday items. My piece where she is sitting on the floor in front of the doors is an excellent example of this. In the end, the woman\'s emotions completely overpowered her, and she ended up taking her own life.
In general, the audience is the panel of judges critiquing my portfolio. However, there are a couple target audiences, the first would be those who look at my works and see a part of themselves in the woman\'s personality and in how she responds to her problems. She chose to let her emotions control her, instead of the other way around. A lot of people, including myself, fall prey to their emotions once in a while, specifically negative ones. It\'s human nature and extremely difficult to avoid. I wanted to give those certain people something to connect with, something that evokes emotion.The second, and last, target audience would be writers. I wanted to create a well developed story line, turn it into a poem, and incorporate the actual stanzas from the poem into my pieces.
I put all of my works together to create a portfolio to submit it to college board to show my knowledge of digital media, my growth as an artist, my understanding of the principles of design, and to received AP credit.
My desired outcome after completing my portfolio was to show my understanding of the principles of design through my Breadth pieces and my understanding of the growth of an idea in my Concentration pieces. I wanted to show that I had real artistic ability, that I had grown as an artist, and to hopefully make a 5 on it.
I know I\'ve succeeded because I received a score of 5 on my portfolio, and because I believe I accomplished all of my purposes for compilation. I also know I have succeeded because my Art teacher, Danielle Pontus, approved all my work. --On a side note, I know I have succeeded because I wouldn\'t be answering these questions for Danielle Pontus if she did not believe I had not done exceptional on my portfolio, and because I gained her approval. To me, her word above all others that I have done well on something, means more than anything. If she says I succeeded, then I did.
