A Question for Art teachers, professors, etc.?

Do any of you like Gothic art? You know like paintings that others would say are kinda scary?

i don't think i would like it so much

One of my teachers liked and tought baroque, which is dark and scary

It doesn't really matter what a teacher or professor thinks unless this is for some assignment.

Always draw/paint what you like or what you feel. You will never go wrong.

The term "Gothic" actually refers to a period of architecture before the Renaissance, and it's taught in almost every art history class in the U.S.

As for dark art, that depends on the person. They may not teach it, but that won't stop them from liking it.

Hi im probably etc. and im also an artist, I once or twice had people run away from my paintings. If you are into art the best advice I could give you would be to experiment with everything....use different media try out different styles listen to advice from anyone but always follow your own star and do what you enjoy doing

as long as it is honest. But why would you want to make scarry work when the world is already a scarry place.

Gothic art is awesome. The darker and scarier, the better.

The Middle Ages were a time of darkness and scariness. There were monsters lurking in the forests, and once the sun went down, demons walked the earth, ready to swallow anyone that strayed too far from the lights of the village. Death was everywhere, and could take anyone at any time. (Disease, war, famine, plague. You were lucky to reach 5 years old, and 80% of women died in childbirth before they reached 20.)

It was this mind-set that produced those scary paintings. When you look at them, you can really enter into their brains. The church had them all by the short and curlies, and the people squirmed in torment at the thought of it all.

This is what makes the study of Gothic (and all Medieval) art so interesting.

Gothic art is not dark or scary and it has nothing to do with Goths or Emos. Gothic art is Medieval art.

Gothic art was a Medieval art movement that lasted about 200 years. It began in France out of the Romanesque period in the mid-12th century, concurrent with Gothic architecture found in Cathedrals. By the late 14th century, it had evolved towards a more secular and natural style known as International Gothic, which continued until the late 15th century, where it evolved into Renaissance art. The primary Gothic art mediums were sculpture, panel painting, stained glass, fresco and illuminated manuscript

Painting in a style that can be called "Gothic" did not appear until about 1200, or nearly 50 years after the start of Gothic architecture and sculpture. The transition from Romanesque to Gothic is very imprecise and not at all a clear break, but we can see the beginnings of a style that is more somber, dark and emotional than the previous period. This transition occurs first in England and France around 1200, in Germany around 1220 and Italy around 1300.

Painting (the representation of images on a surface) during the Gothic period was practiced in 4 primary crafts: frescos, panel paintings, manuscript illumination and stained glass. Frescoes continued to be used as the main pictorial narrative craft on church walls in southern Europe as a continuation of early Christian and Romanesque traditions. In the north stained glass was the art of choice until the 15th century. Panel paintings began in Italy in the 13th century and spread throughout Europe, so by the 15th century they had become the dominate form supplanting even stained glass. Illuminated manuscripts represent the most complete record of Gothic painting, providing a record of styles in places where no monumental works have otherwise survived. Painting with oil on canvas does not become popular until the 15th and 16th centuries and was a hallmark of Renaissance art.
