The first piece of artwork that I think shows a lot of what my style is, is my "cheeky" piece. Here are a couple of pictures..
The first 'artistic behavior' I chose for myself is, "I Create Original Art." To answer the first question, I believe that I incorporated my own unique ideas into my work through the use of texture and bold colors. One of my absolutely favorite things in the art world is the ability to create texture through various different mediums. Mr. Sands helped provide many of the materials needed in order for me to have the bumpy texture you can see above and he also was very supportive and helpful without distorting my own view of what I wanted. To answer the second question, I didn't really have much inspiration despite the want of texture and bright colors. As bad as it may sound, this project sort of just came to be as I worked on it. All my original plans and thoughts were thrown out the window with each passing day because I would randomly get an idea or desire to change the direction it was going. The second 'artistic behavior' I choose is, "I Communicate Through My Work." This piece of artwork was originally intended to show that any body size is beautiful, but as it started to turn more abstract instead of realistic, the meaning is more of, the human body is not something to be ashamed of. As one of the issues I faced, I can not begin to describe how many people questioned me for doing butt cheeks and how many people thought it was inappropriate to show such "nudity." It was honestly a bit ridiculous. Human anatomy is not something to be shamed!!!! It should be shown off and people should be proud of their own beautiful body!!! This artwork is about who I am and what I believe because I genuinely think that any one should be able to show off their body in any way they want. I also believe that everything is beautiful and should be allowed to have art created on it, without having many judge and question it.
Piece Numero Dos:
For my second piece of art work, I chose this...ceiling tile replacement thing..? The first artistic behavior I demonstrated while working on this piece is, "I Developed My Art Making Skills." During this project I experimented with many different materials. I used canvas, gesso, white paint, paper mache powder (?), glue sticks, ink, and a spray bottle. I believe that I gained a lot of skill with using these different materials. I used them in a very abnormal way and I think this helped push my creativity farther and developed not only my hand working skills but my thinking/brainstorming skills. My second artistic behavior is, "I Take Risks." I was unsure of this entire project. I felt as if I never knew what my next step was going to be. I tried many different materials and techniques in order to complete this project.
Piece numero tres:
If i were to redo one project, I would most likely choose this abstract-esque acrylic painting. I don't not like it, but I did not really plan anything about it out, I kinda just put the paint wherever. If I were to redo it, I think I would make it more complex, and change the shapes up more.
