Other Formal Elements

Sayre – 7th edition

Chapter 7


Texture

Surface quality

“Ability to call forth tactile sensations and feelings”


Actual Texture (Fig 439/14-31)


Implied texture (a.k.a. visual texture) (fig 39/2-21)


Actual and Implied Texture (fig 160/7-2)


Interesting “bridge” between actual and implied texture…

  • Sometimes paint is applied so thickly on a 2D surface that it “sticks up” in 3D creating actual texture

  • Impasto – brushstrokes of very thick paint which are built up on the surface of a painting


Actual and implied texture (fig 73/4-14)


Pattern

“any formal element that repeats itself in a composition”


Fig 167/7-9


Time and Motion


Fig 54/3-12 vs. Fig 168/7-10a moment frozen


Implied passage of time

How does the artist imply

that time has passed?


Motion

  • Motion can be divided into actual and implied motion

  • Implied motion – suggests a sense of movement in a stationary work of art

  • Actual motion – art which actual moves


Implied motion (fig 171/7-13)


Implied motion (fig 692/21-7)


Fig 606/18-22


Actual motion

  • Pertains to 3D art…sculpture which actually moves is also known as “kinetic sculpture”

  • One of the pioneers in kinetic sculpture was Alexander Calder…he invented a particular type of kinetic sculpture known as the “mobile”


Mobiles (fig 159/7-1)
