Rationale for Score

In this section:

  • The work demonstrates informed investigation of a broad range of visual concepts (abstraction, portraiture, surrealism, and narrative) and resolved compositions.
  • The work clearly demonstrates original vision, a variety of innovative ideas and risk taking, and inventive articulation of a broad range of the elements and principles of design: contrast (images 2, 8, and 9); repetition (images 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, and 11); balance (images 1, 3, 9, and 11); emphasis (images 1, 6, and 11); unity/ variety (images 1, 6 and 10); color (images 1, 3, 5, 6, 11, and 12); value (images 2, 3, 8, and 9).
  • The work clearly demonstrates a broad range of intentions or purposes.
  • The work as a whole is confident and evocative; it engages the viewer with a wide range of visual qualities including line quality and mark making (images 2, 10, and 12), light and shade (images 3, 8, and 9), rendering of form (images 1, 2, and 11), illusion of depth (images 3 and 10), surface manipulation (images 2, 5, and 8), and composition (all images).
  • The work is technically excellent; materials and media are used effectively to express ideas.
  • Images 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 transform appropriated material in the service of a larger, personal vision.
