The trip was great last Friday. I chose two art works to present.
The first one i choose is the Fred Eversley's works. The medium of this works is the cast polyester. He uses the highly translucent,reflective surfaces of these sculptures to produce an optical experience. Those basic geometric forms emerge the light refraction. Walking around these small monoliths,gives us multiple ways to view light and changing color through the translucent materials. When u take a look at it , it make you feel you are looking at vast area not just the spheres.
The second piece i chose is the "Gradual Troop withdrawal" 1970 by John T. Riddle . In the gradual Troop withdrawal, riddle depicts a solider sprawling backward, supported by a circular steel frame that extends from his left leg. It seems like he's struck by something with power and that thing blows him up into air. Wood chip and some sundries represent his viscera and what is inside the body is already mass up. And the head is half missing. it looks like some one just get shot and fall backward. I think the artist try to show us the war is cruel.
