Pick a visual artist from the past 100 years, and discuss one or more of their works of art. Over the course of your written discussion, focus your observations and analysis on the following:
1. What strategies do they make use of to engage their viewers visually (this can be their use of composition, color, line, pattern, repetition, scale, etc).
2. What conceptual ideas are they working with in their art, and why do you connect to them as a viewer (the ideas that create meaning; convey ideas of power; does the artwork have a religious message, or does it have a non-narrative, abstract meaning)?
