Short 1 Cameron Short Ms. Bray English 101 14 October 2009 Learning Respect from Art Art is defined an expression of emotion. Many artists display their talents through many different genres of art. Duane Hanson’s “Queenie II” demonstrates design elements that present the main idea of the artist’s work. The idea that janitors are real people who deserve respect for the work they do is Hanson’s central point. Hanson’s use of design elements such as symmetry, the color scheme of the work, the facial expression of Queenie in the work, the genre of the piece itself, the race of the subject, and the emotion appeal demonstrate the idea that janitors do not get recognition for the hard work that they do. “Queenie II” is presented in an asymmetrical fashion, which helps move the eye to the focal point and quickly target the artist’s meaning. The movement of the piece begins at the top of the sculpture and extends to the significant part of the piece, the cleaning supplies. This progression down the sculpture to the trashcan helps the audience realize Hanson’s purpose for this artwork. He is expressing that Queenie is associating herself with the work that she obviously despises.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
