Exercise 1: 

a. Please read the article, “The Photographed, Collaged, and Painted Muses of Mickalene Thomas,” by Carey Dunne, published by Hyperallergic, March 1, 2016 https://hyperallergic.com/278045/the-photographed-collaged-and-painted-muses-of-mickalene-thomas/. (Links to an external site.)

b. Then analyze the article by identifying passages (i.e. sentences, words) that follow your understanding of

1) description,

2) analysis,

3) interpretation, and

4) judgment 

COMMENT: Do your best to clearly identify at least two examples that seem to fit into each category or “step” of formal analysis . For example, notice the writer’s use of adjectives, adverbs, and “word pictures” that help to convey how the artwork looks. What passages seem to be more about an interpretation of the work? Where is the writer expressing “judgment” or success or strength of the work?

NOTE: Because this is not an exact science, you may encounter ambiguities or “slippage” between categories. However, think about the writer’s language choices that reflect aspects of formal analysis. This exercise is not about being “right.” It’s more of an awareness practice to help us “see” and “hear” visual language so that we can more consciously craft it in our writing.

Exercise 2: 

a. Please read the article, “Mickalene Thomas,” by Kara Walker, published by Bomb Magazine, April 1, 2009 https://bombmagazine.org/articles/mickalene-thomas/ (Links to an external site.).

b. Write a one-two paragraph (200-250 words) response that compares and contrasts each author’s use of voice, tone, and descriptive language. Discuss how the writer’s choices impact your understanding of or relationship to the work. Use examples from each text to substantiate your observations.
