Generations - Art
In Generations, creative use of texture and color illustrates the intricate interweaving of the different generations that make up a family. The color scheme used in this painting is quite diverse, spanning warm and cool colors of various levels of brightness. The diversity of this color scheme illustrates the diverse nature of a family, which can include members of many different backgrounds, ages, and beliefs. These seemingly disparate people are connected by a family relationship that binds them together.
This colorful painting also has a very unique textural composition. The color saturation of this piece is sparse, and upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the color segments are composed of very small circles and squares that cover the painting’s landscape. These individual shapes represent the individual members of each generation. Though the maintain individuality, they combine to form the larger, more powerful entity of the generation.
