In this trip, I like two amazing art.
The one's name "home is where, you make it"by Dale Brockman Davis.
This art is sculpture, and it shows us that a ragged window. The artist used
batten to cut two same pieces from middle of window. The one is complete,
but the other one is ragged and broken that express unity, variety and
approximate symmetry. This wood window was fixed by the iron bar. It seems
like a real window which people used in 50 years ago. The special place
is artist puts a doorknob to a window ,and a withered and yellow flower
on the bottom of window that seem like the flower couldn't get sunlight
from outside because the window was locked. The whole art was used brown
and black colors to describe the window which was ragged and dirty.
According the history, at the time, many black people moved to south
American, and because of house restriction, a lot of black people didn't
have a house to live and some people discriminated them. Therefore, I think
the artist want to express us that people are equal and free, if people
discriminate the other people or the other race, the people or the society
will be unhealth just like the flower couldn't get sunlight and didn't
grow very well . When I look back the title of art, I realize that the
artist advise us that we should fight for our right when we get very
unfair and unjust treatment.
The other's art name "Apparitional visitation" by Suzanne Jackson. It is 2D painting
and the style is abstract.. This art is organic shape and the artist uses white and
green colors to cover background, and the figure's face was painted by red ,black,purple
and yellow.This is a very colorful painting. In the background the artist keep repetition of
white cloud and green mountain, so it shows unity and
variety. The artist uses highlight to emphasize a woman's face. The focal point would
be a women has 2 faces that one is on her head and the other one is in her body and
the special place is a red and fresh flower plant on her black heart that seem like
the flower take all blood from heart and the heart almost die. The faces are
different,so it looks like approximate symmetry. The face is very twisty in her body
and I feel the face and flower are very evil because they absorb all flesh and blood
from the woman's body and woman didn't notice that. In my own opinion, I think
the artist want to tell us that many people always are not grateful their lives and
treasure what they get and they always feel upset because sometimes they can't stop
pursuing something which they don't have ,but when they pursuing something , they
can't notice that they may lose everything or some really important thing .sometimes
they hurt their friends and family even themselves because they are so aggressive
to get what they want and ignore the other people's feeling. Therefore, people should
appreciate their lives.
