Naturalism: Making something appear real... the way it is RENDERED
Your wording is confussing to the 'naked' eye.
bueatifull = Naturalism.... which is not true. Something can look to be 'naturalistic' and still look ugly. How about photograph of of poo,lol.
Realistic = The event of murder in the depiction is a real world event (realism).
Most people get realism confussed with a naturalism. As the above two posters might have become, but it could have also been your wording also. I just get the concept because it has been pounded into my head and your piece exhibits it quite througly.
However, it would be better to word your piece in a way less 'hypicritical' to the 'general' audience.
You could also just make it simple and change it to the below:
Realism over Naturalism
- Your piece is perfectly depicts this concept.
Realistic event rendered in a not so naturalistic style. Makes perfect sense to me.
The ordinary viewer will view it and think:
Realism over naturalism?
- Nothing appears realistic everything is out of perspective and it looks like a cartoon.
Hence, thinking you are being hypicritical and have no clue what you are talking about.
Either way its hard to say it without the 'general' viewer' thinking your being hypicritical.
Design schools are too often administered and staffed by academics with insufficient real-world experience in what the school teaches. As for AIGA, it's mostly a social club for people who enjoy socializing...
