A Review of Artistic Prints

The composition of the print is very realistic, probably created from a photograph. It is dominated by a large window that serves as the focal point. The text is also written over the window and serves as the most important part of the work in terms of its message. The window contrasts with the rest of the picture in terms of light and shade. To the left of the window is a young dancer, who appears to balance herself effortlessly on the tips of her toes. She seems to embody the central message of the text: she chooses to make herself strong.
The forms, lines, and shapes in the picture are simple and uncluttered. The arched window and the girl are the largest shapes in the work. The lines of the window, floor, and print on the wall are all straight and simple. The colors are also simple, with the contrast between light and dark playing a more important role than different colors. As such, the hue is soft, with a predominantly mauve color throughout the print. The bright window is softened in its reflection on the floor. There appears to be a three-tiered value to the color of the print; the window is brightest, with a softer reflection on the floor at the second level, and the rest at the third and darkest value.
The emphasis of the work is primarily in the window, and secondly of the figure of the dancer who strives towards the light. There is a balance between these two main figures in the work, in that the one perpetually strives towards the other. The dancer strives from the gloom of her surroundings towards the light of the emphasized window. The illusion of movement created in this way lends a dynamic balance to the work. Harmony is achieved by the relative simplicity of the setting. The dancer is on an empty, clean floor, with the light from the window reflected in front of her. She is as it was surrounded by the light effect and inevitably moves towards it.
