Quarter 4 Artist Statement
For this quarter, we were assigned to create couples of different projects, create a sculpture, take 200 photos, modify 4 photos, recreate a famous painting, sketch a bicycle three times in different ways, and draw an outside scene from observation. In my opinion all of the topics above seem really interesting and cool to create. However, along the way I ran into some trouble and I personally felt like it was really challenging for me.
For the first project I created a sculpture of a lamp made out of Popsicle sticks and plastic bottles. So far this was one of the most interesting project that I have made. I really enjoy building art and ex-specially something that I can actually use everyday. Another project that I enjoy working on was taking 200 photos and modify 4 photos of my choice. Since I love photography and always carry my “DSLR” around at all time it was not a problem for me to capture 200 pictures. However, one of the harder task was to select photos and edit them using all different kind of programs on the Macbook, including Photoshop, iPhoto and more. After we are completed with electronics and hand down projects, we moved on into more of drawing and painting unit.
For the second half of the quarter I created different drawing of a bike-cycle including lines, negative space and shading of the bike. The biggest challenge for this assignment was to do the shading because the bike was station close to the window so the reflection of the light changes at all time. Also it was far for a view distance so I’ve made a few errors along the way. Also it was really challenging to draw the bike over all because there were a lot of details to go into with the bike work. I also enough working on the drawing of nature because it’s really beautiful outdoor and there were a lot of objects I could select from.
Over all, I really enjoy all of the assignment that was giving this quarter and proud of the art work I’ve created. Although I may have not been using enough time on some of my art piece.
