Jeff Wall: Artist Response- Midterm
My artist response is on Jeff Wall who's art style was mentioned in Chapter 4 of New Media in Art. We talked briefly about his art in class when we made reference to his popular piece called A Sudden Gust of Wind. Jeff Wall used digital technology to expand the visual possibilities of his work. He used many of the same elements in his pictures that are used in film making This gave some of his pieces the essence of 'cinematography.'The use of many different images in one large image gave it the sense of motion. The piece shown here called View From an Apartment was an interesting piece in that the woman, the items in the apartment, the person sitting on the couch, and the scenery outside were all taken separately. I just love the way it looks!!!
