Abstract

The use of metaphors in artwork production is a common tool employed by artists in delivering ideas and current issues throughout contemporary arts. Metaphor as a method to explain and visualize a meaning for an artwork in simple and concise form that is visually easy to decipher, as well as a method for symbolized representation. It is an effective tool in proposing an idea in a creative, narrated manner. The use of metaphor as a tool must always be parallel with the choice of subject and meaning intended in order to produce consistent message, for a more critical analysis to be possible. Every artist employing such method should always be concise in its execution and object implementation.
