Electric Flower” artist statement :
During this project I knew I wanted my work to be bright, to tell a story without including words.
I purposely had many things going on with my creation because I didn't want the viewer to just focus on one thing but everything at once. Doing this project, I achieved how to add line,texture and drawing into one picture. My current work relates to past work more in a better way because I improved, I stayed more focused on having a neat project and making sure my work was meeting the expectations. I simply was just going to have the colorful flower picture but I wanted to go outside the box and add a dramatic background including texture with the bold dots I created. I also did not want my work to be dull so I used multiple colored markers to incorporate my theme of the " Electric Flower”. This project does not affect the world I live in but It does reflect who I am as a person.. Bright, variety of, out of order but put together at the same time. Its unique in its own way. Lastly a new technique I learned to do is to create my own frame for a picture by just using a ruler, scissors and some tape. This project has helped me express myself through colors, lines, texture and drawings.
For this project, I decided to re-create the linoleum outline. I had the outer of my picture all white and then traced for the rest to be covered with black ink. I used stars and the moon because to me they are very peaceful and have a bigger meaning to me than just a moon and stars. Although this project was fun doing I can say it was hard. I had trial and error a few times until I was satisfied with what my results were.
From beginning to end, this project has really made an impact on me and the way I view art. The most complicated part was actually carving out my picture, I had gotten a cut from the way I was doing it the first time but I got some help from a peer and got right back on track. Transferring the ink and getting it how I wanted it was quit easy and fun although It took a couple tries. What I greatly enjoyed was rolling the ink onto my canvas, it was fun and a unique way to show the art that I had made. If there is something that I would change about the project it would be the way I used my time, your work really reflects on effort and I feel like you can see that with my project. If I could go back I would use my time more easily and get advice from more advanced people to make sure my project has a chance at meeting expectations.
The reason why I choose to this project in particular is because the uniqueness of the way it had to be put together is what caught my eye.
Creating this project, I knew my choices and variety of creativity had not limits. Although, I was inspired by the original color wheel, I liked the plane feel of it so my colors could stick out. To give my project my name I wanted to add some originality to it by adding a solid black background and white splattered paint.. This gave my project an edgy feel. While working, my routine/technique was to do the primary colors first then work on secondary colors because I knew since I had such a small space for painting I was bound to mess up.
When I am online I am the same person as I would be in “real life”. I am the same funny , pretty and nice person as I would be in real life. I log on my social media and i post and appear as myself , as people call it today i am not a “Catfish”
I think I am perceived as someone that is really pretty and nice based on what they comment and say.
Before I ever post anything online i consider what my mother would think if she sees it. If i'm posting a picture I make sure i'm not showing too much skin and who is in
There are many pros and cons of sharing online but I feel like comedy is the best one. A pro would be sharing a simple funny picture to make your followers or friends laugh but a con is if someone shares a personal photo that wasn't meant for sharing it can get out of hand.
