One of the most famous paintings of all time, The Scream, is an expressionist piece of art. This piece of art has inspired many different forms of media, one of which being the mask for the hit horror film Scream.
My take on this task combines both the original art work, and the film which is a piece of media that is widely seen as one of the most influential movies in history.
I decided to take a literal approach to the "scream" pose while dressed in black lace, paying homage to the film. I wanted to pay respect to both the original artwork, and the many works of media it has directly inspired.
Self portraits have been a staple of recognizing the artists behind the canvases. I chose Gustave Courbet's self portatit, Le Désespéré, for the emotion he captured. I admire his unconventional approach and attempted to implement some characteristics into my own show. As the age of the portrait was done in the realism era, I'm relying on my facial expression to tell a story of woes.
The Birth of Venus is a painting by the Italian artist Sandro Botticelli, probably made in the mid 1480s. It depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown.
I may not have the pretty shell and colors in the background in my photo. But I'm going for the body language in the original painting of the goddess arriving at the shore after her birth.
The painting in question lies in The Metropolitan Museum of Art and I am doing a modern take on the fierce painting. Madame X in the portrait is stylish and confidence and I am interpreting it as if the same painting was created in modern times.
Shanina Shaik | Ophelia |
I wanted to create a modern retelling of Ophelia by Sir John Everett Milais, the aspect of water was important to me and the depiction of peacefulness whilst drowning. I wanted to add a fashion aspect to this and decided upon a shot that was modelesque, glamourous and beautiful to create a modern retelling of the piece of art.
He Cong - Roses and Lillies by Henri Fantin-Latour (1888)
I decided to draw upon inspiration from this famous work of art! Flowers are so delicate and fragile which I brought upon my shot.
"Roses and Lilies is a standout piece in the body of work by Henri Fantin-Latour. Painted in 1888, this painting showcases the use of light and bold colors. Today the original hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. With Roses and Lilies many homeowners find a beautiful accent for their space that reflects a true appreciation for art history and one of the world's great painters. "
"Set in the stark landscape of coastal Maine, Christina’s World depicts a young woman seen from behind, wearing a pink dress and lying in a grassy field. Although she appears to be in a position of repose, her torso, propped on her arms, is strangely alert; her silhouette is tense, almost frozen, giving the impression that she is fixed to the ground. She stares at a distant farmhouse and a group of outbuildings, ancient and grayed in harmony with the dry grass and overcast sky."
So I was heavily inspired by this painting and just how she's laying in the landscape of course I took some creative liberties since I don't want to give an exact replica of the painting but I did want to kinda encompass the vibe of the shot in a more model like shoot so I went with a more face on approach with this while keeping the fundamentals the same as the original painting
"Narcissus is a painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio that depicts a young man looking deeply into the water of a lake as he leans against it. It depicts the classic Greco-Roman mythological story of a handsome and vain young man who falls in love with his own reflection. There are many paintings by Narcissus, but Caravaggio's is by far the most famous."
Honestly speaking, i could only thinking about this art, its literally one of my favorites of all time because i'm a fan of Greek Culture. So, trying to portray this is a huge thing for me and i really thing i di it too well.
The black shine floor represents the lake, our clothes look exaclty the same talking about colors. Plus i'm prettier than him by the way hahaha. Just kiding ^^
Girl With a Pearl Earring tells the story of Griet, a 16-year-old Dutch girl who becomes a maid in the house of the painter Johannes Vermeer. Her calm and perceptive manner not only helps her in her household duties, but also attracts the painter's attention.
In this specific painting, the girl with the pearl earring as an icon, is purely an image, and as an index, her expression and her earring becomes the sign of innocence and purity, deep to symbolic meaning, the painting shows timeless peace and mystery to be argue for its audience.
