The Subjective Frame- (personal and psychological experience).

Extracts from this document...


The Subjective Frame- (personal and psychological experience) Through this frame art may be thought to be about and represent deeply felt experience, imagination, originality and creative expression. Artists may work strongly from their own experience, imaginings, feelings and psychological experience. Pablo Picasso's representation and symbolic work, predominantly (mostly) of those women with whom he was involved, clearly illustrates his feelings for them and also often demonstrates his mood during the stages in which they were painted.

Picasso's "The Bathers" features cheerful colour and features two figures revelling in the open air. ...read more.


This shows further evidence of Storrier working in the subjective frame. It is interesting to note how Storrier communicates his feelings so effectively.

In this instance it was all the hurt and distress of breaking up with his wife. These three artists have revealed that the development of subjective perception (view) depends on the ability to observe and manipulate (control) internal rational objects as well as objects in the environment. They have interpreted their artworks through subjective frame in order to represent deeply felt experience, perception, originality and creative expression. ...read more.
