For our second assignment in Composition, we were assigned to take a trip down to the Columbus Museum of Art and find either a portrait, abstract painting, or sculpture to create our study off of. Of all the wonderful works of art, there was one that I knew immediately that I wanted to base my study on – “Kin V (Thou Dark One)” by Whitfield Lowell.
I feel the reason that this piece was so interesting to me was because it was open to much interpretation. I saw the broach in the portrait as the man’s breath – full of his essence and life – and I based most of my movement focus on the inhalations and exhalations of my movement. I wanted my movement to represent the flow of energy that is seen in breath that is always moving.
