The garments was unquestionably extremely noteworthy to help me comprehend this work, this music feature was honestly alluring and much of it is simply Beyoncé moving in constrained dress for her spouse Jay-Z. I think having him in the music feature was additionally a tremendous a piece of this and seeing as this was her first collection discharged since conceiving an offspring I think having her spouse in the feature spoke to how she could in any case be an attractive lady considerably in the wake of having a child. The lighting in one of the parts is made to show simply her shape as she moves exposed on a seat, the bends in her body and point from her heel make her extremely engaging the eye. I could see why Jay-Z might need to gaze at her throughout the night

This object made me feel very comfortable in my own skin and did a really good job of making me feel like I could be a sexy appealing woman but it also made me feel like that was the only way I could get a mans attention.
12. How is it like you? How is it different from you?
I would say this is similar to me because I am a woman who has flaws and parts of my body that I could live without but I should love and accept them. Beyoncé was probably feeling a little less sexy than usual given the fact that she had just had a baby, therefore I understand where she’s coming from in wanting to pleasure her husband and being the girl he wants.
13. What is the title of this object? Who is the artist? When was it made?
Partition by Beyoncé’ made in 2013
14. What do you already know about this artist, the time period in which it was created, or ideas that the title suggests?
I have been a fan of Beyoncé since I was a little girl, I like her because she has always been an ally to women, she wants to empower the female race and bring us up not down. A lot of her music is about how she doesn’t need a man to complete her or make her better but given the time period this album came out in I would imagine time had a factor to the music on the album. Especially this song, I think it was a way of saying yes I may have had a baby and got married but I am still the iconic woman I was before all that.

16. How do think the object reflects the artists view of the world and human experience, or the time and place in which they lived? How does the object help you describe the culture in which this artist lived?
I think this object reflects how Beyoncé may see herself now, I think it is no surprise that sex sells and is something that many women can use against men. The way I interpret it is that the artist wanting to get her groove back and feel like she is still wanted by her husband and I think that is a feeling that many women feel after having a baby this is the way women have felt for centuries, I do not think it is just a modern feeling.
17. What is this artwork about? What is its main message?
The main message is that even though as women we may look at our bodies and find a million things wrong with it there are still aspects that are beautiful and we should love our curves and embrace the parts that we do love. This is about just being in your own skin and showing it off to someone who appreciates it.
18. What does this artwork say about gender (portrayal, gaze, access/margins/belonging, power dynamics and structures, biology/psychology/social roles, etc.)? What are its main messages about gender?
This says a lot about gender, it portrays the image of using a womanly body to get the attention of a man and how the male gaze towards a woman affects the way she looks at herself and how she chooses to display her body. I think having the scene where Jay-Z just sits and watches Beyoncé dance shows how as a woman she wants to hold the power and have the eyes on him on her.
19. In what ways does the artwork change, confirm, modify, or otherwise build your view of gender?
This craftsmanship truly affirmed for me everything that we have been discussing in class, I see that even individuals that I turn toward and have used their entire lives dedicating themselves to the strengthening of ladies still comprehend that the male look could be utilized to profit the female trust level. In the tune Beyoncé sings "take every last bit of me, I only need to be the young lady you like" importance despite the fact that somebody might be a standout amongst the most sure ladies in the nation and still need to be lovely in the eyes of a man.
20. What else would you like to say about this work or the experience analyzing it?
I have discovered this undertaking to be exceptionally invigorating and captivating, taking something that I listen to and respect in my consistently life and separating it in the eyes of craftsmanship and sexual orientation. I observe that I take a gander at everything distinctively now on account of this class and I feel so much more astute and a great deal more delicate to symbolization now.
