Some paintings look the same no matter how you look at them

Jack Whitten made this work by putting objects under the canvas and tracing their impressions

Choose a work in the gallery and write a careful description of it.

Jack Whitten’s painting is isolated as a trouble maker in prison. I don’t think there is consideration of light use for the work by the painter. So compared to other paintings in the space, his painting is calmly sitting on the wall.

Look at the work again from a different position in the gallery, and write another description.

I walked around the space to see the work from different locations but there were no differences to see the work.
