Kubler explains the lives and biographies of artists in history as a genre; the life of an artist is study in a biographical series. One artists’ work sets and is the building blocks for another. In this writing, Kubler explains the “entrance” of artist, this is how an artist manipulates the tradition of art to make it their own. Kubler continues to explain how it is difficult to judge an artist based on their talent, because every artist has a different style. He continues to explain that many artists are equal as talented, but some artist just came about in the right time period, making them more well-known then others.

The first image was taken with no overhead light, where the second image there was a light shining directly on the objects. In the top photo the white paper and white charger cable have a cream/gray tint to it, whereas in the second photo with the extra light, the objects appear to have a blueish tint to them.

Escaping Flatland

This article was difficult to comprehend at first, however I found it to be very interesting. It gave perspective on much of art is lost viewing it on a two-dimensional screen. We lose the connection that the artist intended between the art and the viewer. The art work in a way is distorted because it is viewed in pixelated form rather than how the artist really intended it to look. There may be slight differences in color, texture, and composition. This article made me think about how often I view things through two dimensional whether its on social media, on a tv screen, or in a book rather than in its natural form.
