The formal elements


Colour is the most emotional element of art as it directly affects the emotions of the audience; which determins the mood, thought and actions. In previous centuries colour was termed the sensual part of art because it attacked emotions directly and had no boundaries or rules. I chose this paerticular piece by Alexander Mcqueen as he explores colour hugely in this garment to create the effect of an exotic reptile feel to the piece. Without the colour and the reflective materials, the garment would not have the same meaning and; the colour is what creates the mood atmosphere and part of meaning of the piece.
