Field Trip

I thikn the field trip was realli interesting. The shows were pretty diverse depending on the galleries. One exhibit i found realli interesting was the one with the artist that used a program on the computer to digitally remove the poist of signs. It made it so that we only see the top of the sign as if it was floating

Galery Project

For My final project I would be making a stencil of a design and then spray painting it with various color combinations. I would be adding other parts to the pieces in the background or words and all of them would be one piece i am not sure on how many pieces i will be putting gin the show I wanted to have maybe like 5. 1 of the original drawing 2 of rough drafts and 2 final copies and then maybe a side project with Roland. Still in talks.

How do you decide what pieces to put in your gallery, is it what you like, what you think others will like, or soemthing that sticks out among others?

Boston Art Scene

These changes might affect the boston art world because with these well establshed galleries leaving and new ones coming in it might gives chances for new kinds of art and artist that might be more risky to be in a gallery and get exposure. ALthough it might help others there have been bad affects of it too. a dozen arti galleries did close because they werent able to pay for renting the expensive spaces they were in and now they have to go soemwhere else or close for good.

I myself havnt been to a lot of galleries but am looking forward to my trip on thursdayy.

I think that critique is very important in the art making process. I know that ithelps me alot because seeing what other peopel think about my piece and getting their suggestions is very important for me. I go realli slow and got bogged down on little things and details and it prohibits me from think on a largger scale and at the whole picture. I think that it helps the people get re aquainted with their goals so they dont lose focus

Alternative Exhibition Format Responce

For my work i have toggled with the ideas of focusing on ones identity on a larger scale not just how you see yourself but also how other people see you and your place in the universe, and the ideas of freedom whether it be with from your parents because your going to college or liek an animal roaming the world being free. I am not sure yet how i am going to approach these topics with like how i am going to choose to convey them i do want do some drawing and mable some oil painting if i feel really motivated. I deffinatley want to do some larger pices and them maybe a series of smaller ones that put together might make a regular size peice. Im still in the thikning process for that.

Cai Guo-Quiang's piece had a really interesting format to it. I feel that it attracted people too it because it was one a very large piece and the fact that he had the stream of animals going into a glass walll. It made peoel think about what he was realli trying to get at and get peopel to see with this piece. What makes this piece stand out to me is that he doesnt just draw and paint the animals he gets real stuffed ani mals and then makes this whole modle like peice that is really large in size and stands out compared to other wall art.

Week 2 Reflection

This week i have been struggling to find ideas of work i would like to do or even themes to work with when i come back. During that very long presentation an idea popped into my head about working with the theme of ones self in the world. This theme intrigues me because it lets me think about other people as well as myself and about me seeingmyself in our world or even universe. With such a broad topic i will have a lot to do and won't run out of ideas.
