Artwork Critique

Does the design achieve the proposed content (and subject matter)? Why and how?
~I feel it does. It represents how strongly I feel about my own, personal space, and how my personal space is something I value greatly.
What is the strongest aspect of the design?
~The strongest aspect of my composition is the top half. It conveys the most meaning, detail, and design.
What is the weakest aspect of the design?
~The weakest aspect of my composition is the bottom half. There isn’t much meaning, and I found it the hardest part to work with.
Should anything be deleted?
~The green crate paper representing the grass.
Should anything be repeated?
~No, I feel I added enough repetition with the playing card cut-outs and newspaper clippings.
Can the project be strengthened conceptually? How?
~Different mediums used on the bottom half of the project.
Can the project be strengthened technically? How?
~More variety could have been added, like better use of contrast. More use of the rule of thirds for better proportion could have also been used more effectively.
