report description
The thesis is an empirical analysis of eight paintings in which the problems to be examined are the relationships of the expressive visual elements of composition with the subject matter. An attempt will be made to examine some specific problems encountered with individual works, which will include emotional involvement as well as aesthetic, and arrive at some generalizations. The paintings selected to comprise this thesis are four figure compositions and three landscapes. The medium used to execute the paintings is Acrylic-Polymer, a Hyplar Product, and they are painted on Upsom Board, for which considerations are given.
