Let's Read Art: Anne Truitt

Let's Read Art: Anne Truitt

For a little change of pace, we discussed a minimalist piece by Anne Truitt. Below are the interpretations of my son's Andy and Spencer, and myself.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • orange pink blue green
  • a bunch of colored bricks stacked up
  • bright colors
  • it's tall with long colors
  • it's hovering above the ground
  • you can see that it doesn't quite touch the ground

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  • it's like a rainbow stick
  • each color is very distinct with the exception of the orange and pink which are similar colors and appear to blend
  • it reminds me of minecraft
  • it has a totem pole structure as if each color is telling a different story
  • if the bottom corner was cropped then it would be unclear whether it's folded in or out

WHY DID THE ARTIST PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER?

  • to really simplify their image as much as possible
  • I think it's a landscape
  • the green is the grass the blue the ocean and the pink and orange are the sky
  • I see a minecraft piggy person. pink is the face, orange hair, blue shirt, green pants
  • it's like color field paintings
  • each section is like a different place

These are our interpretations, you may see something different. Oh, and I should mention that when we do this we don't read up about the piece until after we've looked at it.
