Introduction Artistic expression can convey feelings, thoughts, or messages in a way that words are not able to. This reflection paper presents a piece of art that was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night painting. It also provides an explanation of the connection between the art and The Starry Night.
Inspiration Piece Starry Night Painting is an oil on canvas painting by Vincent Van Gogh, which was first created in 1889. It measures 29×36.2 inches in size and is now housed at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. The painting depicts a night view of the town of Saint Rémy de Provence in southern France, where Van Gogh lived at the time. It is filled with stars and swirling clouds. The houses in the town are shown in a deep blue hue.
Your Art Piece The artwork I created is titled “The City That Never Sleeps.” It is a mixed media painting created using acrylic paint and collage on a 16 x 20 inch canvas. It depicts New York City’s night skyline with high-rise buildings dominating the scene. The sky is depicted in blues and purples, and the yellow dots are stars. You can collage different materials such as magazines, newspapers and maps to create the structures.
Connection There are several thematic connections between The Starry Night and “The City That Never Sleeps.” Firstly, both artworks depict nighttime scenes, with the sky being a dominant element. Both artworks use different shades of blue in order to convey a feeling of calm and tranquility. Both artworks use swirling lines in order to show movement.
While The Starry Night painting depicts a small French town, “The City That Never Sleeps” depicts the towering skyscrapers of New York City. The medium of the artwork is different, with The Starry Night being an oil on canvas painting while “The City That Never Sleeps” is a mixed media painting.
They have very different design principles. The Starry Night makes use of thick brushstrokes to create texture, while “The City That Never Sleeps” uses collaged materials to create texture. The colors in both artworks are also different, with The Starry Night making use of blue and yellow colors while “The City That Never Sleeps” makes use of shades of blue and purple.
