'The formal elements'

Exploring Form

Form has multiple meanings, it has volume and mass, it is the literal materials 'the form it is made of' or can be a composition of a form. I decided to relate the seven heavenly palaces by Anselm Kiefer to the element of form as i think it relates both from the composition of the sculpture and also what it is made of. The composition of the sculptures are not in line and slightly tilted, the material (form) they are made out of are corrigated iron, wood and various mediums to bond the materials. Although the title is seven heavenly palaces, the sculptures look disturbing, distructful and depressing, the form of the piece contributes and forms the emotion that is depicted through the sculptures.
