I have chose to create a Linoleum cut in press out a hands but i’ve chosen hands specifically because without hands where would we be? But the overall vision for this piece was to show my hands just five fingers but when you flip it upside down you see the other five within my five fingers. What i think this piece of art communicates to the viewers of this is that I think that they could perceive anything but if they were a deep critical thinker like be I would think that they would think where exactly would they be without hands , they basically help you do everything just like your legs. What I feel like I achieved through this creation art was some patience because you had to cut the right way and ona particular angle to get the exact picture that you wanted. This relates to my previous work because it has to do with carving lines and the process of taking your time because it won’t be right the first time so that’s why you try again until you get the work how you want it. My work fits into contemporary art because just like Qiu Deshu’s piece of art when you look at it you could think it’s one thing but when you look closer it’s something different or you can get different ideas from the piece of art just like mine.
The way I created my work was firstly I sketched a draft of what I wanted my drawing to be like in my art book , and once I was done that I took a piece of copying paper and placed that over top of the linoleum cut to copy my sketch the exact way I wanted it. After this process it was pretty light on the linoleum cut so I took a sharpie, traced it I grabbed the cutting tools i heated up the linoleum cut with the iron and started carving but it was a specific one I used first to trace out the whole hand to make it easier and I started carving out my drawing but I had to look at which one I wanted to be the positive and negative and space. Once I finished carving I took some ink and two rollers one for ink directly on the linoleum cut and the other was a dry one used to press on the paper to make the print come out. This was the whole process of the linoleum cut. I had no inspiration on my image I came up with this on my own because everything I looked up online was hard so I thought it be cool to come up with my own thing to draw. This artwork reflects on the world I live in because hands are how you get through your everyday life. This reflects on my own life because without my hands I wouldn’t be able to do anything I love or even type on this computer right now lol. My art work actually can put an impact on the world because it would make people stop taking their hands for granted in certain situations. One technique that i s very important to this work is the carving skill because if you don't carve correctly or miss one important little piece this will show on you art work and it will become annoying because if you want it perfect you will have to keep repeating this cycle. A new technique I learned through this process is carving , if the linoleum cut is not warm you can even carve it and I never used these cutting tools before. Overall this project was challenging not as easy as it seemed!

Artist statement .
I have created a rose as my art work with value , line and texture because I figured what’s better to use other than a flower ? That could be the perfect fit for line texture and value. What I have achieved through doing this artwork is learning how to blend things to give it a different appearance for others to view using charcoal you can also call this appearance in my art work the value of it. To the viewer my artwork communicates that the dark and lighter parts on the petals gives off the view of how a real flower could look which is decent , also the texture on my flower gives off a real life effect to , well at least to me one of the textures are cross hatching which I think was a cool experience drawing it was something different that I thought was actually nice. This current art work relates to my previous art work because I remember in ninth grade I had to draw my shoe. Which had to do with value line and texture and now that I look back on it I wish I wouldve looked up some more things to do. It would've gave off a better effect such as cross hatching it just gave me something more to evaluate. My art fits in with contemporary art because an artist named Wei liang it was created in 1964 , in his image for value he did the same thing I did that gave off a different effect he did the image very dark and the other places very light only difference is his is symbols and not flowers. My artwork is similar to this I used charcoal.
The process I used to create my artwork was youtube because at first I couldn’t do it, but I followed the out like to create the other part of the flower and within the inside I created my own petals. To make the dark spots on my rose I used charcoal and the light spots I used a pencil and held it different ways to get a different effect.Some ways my artwork can reflect my life is I have had some bad and some good the dark represents the bad and the light represents the good. The techniques that were so important to my work are the form of holding the pencil and pressing down on the charcoal , if you didn’t gold the charcoal the correct way you could mess up and smear it everywhere and if the pencil blended with the charcoal it would look messy. The techniques I used that were and experimented on that was new to help me create my artwork are the charcoal and drawing the texture which was cross hatching. My artwork connects to the real world such as the world we live end because the world is getting very dark and the things that are helpful to the world will soon be taken away because of the dark mean hearts around us , there are only a few people who care left.
The work I created was a color wheel , I choose to make mine like a umbrella with a person standing under it in the rain because I thought it was creative and cool I like how the circle was a cool idea to make as an umbrella. This work was created to show the difference between primary , secondary , tertiary and tint colors. To make sure I know the difference and how to mix colors. My Overall vision for this was to Just get a good grade and make sure I have a complete understanding for mixing paints and to know the difference between all colors and what they change to once you mix them.
What I expect from my audience is that they won't necessarily look at the umbrella portion but they will look at the paints and understand that I only started off with certain colors and had to mix them to get others. I think once they understand what I had to go through to get the other paints they’ll think that it’s really cool and not so much difficult you’ll just have to know what you're doing This current work relates to my previous work because I started off with certain colors that’s all I could use to get my work now with is mixed with multiple colors. My art fits the history of art practice because you had to keep going through trials to get the right color for example starting off I only had blue red and yellow I had to mix a few colors to get green and purple.The inspiration I got from my project came from Mrs.Hertz I really liked hers so I decided to do mine like that I thought it was really creative.A certain technique to this art that is important is that you may mess up a few times but you have to keep trying until you mix and get the right color it's all about PATIENCE. The only artist I will ever be influenced by is Mrs. Wonderful Hertz because she gives me all my ideas and I go off of that. A new technique I learned is in making white colors when you add white to the color , it comes out really light and pretty which I like . A technique to this work is important because if you don't know how to mix paints you won't get the job done or so it correctly. This can fit into a series of longer work because once you know how to mix paint when you create something you can do anything and make it art by adding this and that! So in a nutshell I chose to do my color wheel as a umbrella I thought it was creative cute and straightforward to get the job done especially because a umbrella could be cut into to certain parts with different designs that gave me the choice of putting my colors how ever I wanted as long as they were on there
Why I chose to make this sculpture is because my phone means oh so very much to me as others may know. The sculpture I have decided to make is on my phone case. What this piece of art says about me is that I am obsessed with my phone it takes my mind off things and to also ignore people which I love to do without my phone I don't think I would be able to survive. Without this I would be in a lot of problems this keeps me sane and keeps me from overthinking many things.
Life is what you make it !

My identity online is that they say i look mean . I can sing really good im pretty and I have a lot of followers . On social media i am known as Samantha Green or _0713__ those numbers represent my birthday .
Based off of this appearance I think some people may view me as not approachable because i look mean and it makes them not want to talk to me . I also think some people may believe that i'll be a singer when I grow up because I can sing .
What I consider before posting anything on line is thinking about how people may take in what I post . I don't consider anything else because it's my page I can post what I want as long as its not inappropriate and whoever doesn't like it can unfollow me .
The pro’s of sharing things online is that you get to see what other people may think is true or what they agree with .You also get to see the things that are popular today and you get to see the positive things that can make your day when you're feeling a certain way . The con’s of sharing things are that they could be negative or mean things that may offend people it could be bullying harassment or anything offensive to others .
Immediacy , lack Of Control and Permanence control our lives today because Immediacy gives you the urge to post something immediately as soon as you see it and then you can't delete it . Lack Of Control is in our lives today because you post something then people share and re tweet it and it can't be deleted because its on there page and you lose control because it’s in there possession. Permanence is in our lives today because it’s when something is online forever and you will never be able to delete it .
My thoughts on social media background checks is that I don't like it because i feel like my social media is what i do what my personal time its what i do when i'm home it has nothing to do with how I would act at work .
