This week for the artist interview, I was a bit confused by who created which piece. In this collection called the “Labyrinth,” three artists have created artwork that is beyond just unique and amazing. Angel, Isaiah, and Juan, although I don’t know who made which art or if they worked all together, I do know that the art that was placed in the gallery is very interesting and eye-catching.
The first piece that caught my attention was the figure of a human, stuck under the snow. The artwork may seem simple, but it is simply amazing. I have no doubt that there is some kind of significant background to this piece. I thought it represented a man who is too overwhelmed by his sorrows and hardships that he has just given up. The ice/snow represents the obstacles in life that is weighing him down.
The next artwork that caught my attention, was the animal head on a mannequin’s body. My partner Kathleen Nguyen, thought it was absolutely scary; to me, it was absolutely cool. The deer head or whatever animal it was, seemed so real. I wonder how and why the artist decided to come up with this piece of art; it’s funny because this is the kind of artwork I would come up with since I am not too great with a pencil or paint. For this art, I really do not have any clue about what this art’s purpose is or its background. By any means, this figure is definitely unique, different, and very interesting.
In the last creation that I enjoyed taking a look at, was the piece that was either a globe or a soccer ball. I was a bit disappointed by the inside of the figure, as I expected there to be more color than there was. However, the plain color of the spherical-like object seems to represent stability and strength, in my opinion.
These three artists and the artwork shown in the gallery is absolutely remarkable. I hope to view much ore of their work in the future, as their creations are very interesting and I’m sure to have very deep meanings to their background.
