Analysis
• Emphasis: When I look at the artwork I first see shapes in the middle of the explosion because the colors are more bolder than the other colors.
• Balance: There is a balance in the colors from light to dark shades of blue.
• Proportion: The proportions look unusual because there are small objects around the outside, medium sized objects in the middle and big objects surrounding the medium sized ones.
• Pattern: There are no patterns in the artwork.
• Rhythm or Movement: The paths of movement that my eyes follow are the white rectangles coming out of the explosion.
• Unity and variety: The type of colors unify the artwork by dark colors in the middle going to light colors in the outside. The artist use a variety of shapes and colors.
