Portrait of the artist: aesthetic and how it can facilitate communication.
Aesthetics are not simply a means of making something look interesting. A well
chosen aesthetic can affect an audience at an emotional level. It can also, if chosen
well, facilitate communication of a concept. Within the area of self portraiture, you
are asked to produce a self portrait using an identifiable aesthetic from an art
movement, artist or period.
You are asked to write a short biography and use it as the basis for a self portrait.
