STEP TWO: WRITE YOUR REFLECTION

In 400 to 500 words, reflect on the reasoning behind Hockney’s approach to making joiners and how they change our experience of seeing. As you reflect, select one of the joiner images (below) and compare it with The School of Athens (also below)Be sure to include direct references to specific areas of the image you select and discuss.

ADDRESS THE FOLLOWING ISSUES AND SUPPORT YOUR IDEAS WITH CAREFUL OBSERVATIONS OF THE IMAGES:

  1. How is the execution of a joiner is similar to or different from the way a painter makes a painting using brush and paints?
  2. How is perspective in a joiner very different from that in a traditional painting, such as The School of Athens, by Raphael, below?
  3. How does this approach impact the way a viewer experiences time in the image?

Raphael, The School of Athens, 1511
