WAG@Home Interact with Art
Interact with art in the WAG collection from the comfort of your home. With everything from historical to contemporary artwork, the WAG holds an extensive and rich collection for your endless inspiration! This week, we invite you to interact with a brightly coloured still life composed of everyday objects with Tony Scherman’s Untitled.
Look: This brightly coloured still life is composed of everyday objects. Can you name all of the items in the painting? How many birds can you find? Notice the way the artist has played with different patterns, shapes, and textures to make his painting beautiful and interesting. What do you think the red diamond patterned background represents?
Imagine: Take a close look at this other still life by this artist. What objects are represented in this painting? Describe how they compare to this one. In what ways are they the same? In what ways are they different?
Create: Compose and create your own still life using at least three objects found in your own kitchen. Feel free to experiment with colour, pattern, and texture to make your painting, drawing or sculpture bright and beautiful.
