Final Blog

I feel I've been most inspired by Frank Stella. More specifically the geometric art he's created, but also his use of  nontraditional materials in his sculptures. I try to use more shapes in my art and substances you wouldn't normally use when making my . I've also learned how to use more structure and stability behind my art. I find frank Stella is the best example of an artist that has inspired me because of the ways I’ve grown in my artwork.
This first piece is an example of how I learned to use more shapes in my art. This art is more centered around the shape of the art. 

This piece is an example of how I use more nontraditional materials in my sculptures. The aluminum foil I used to create a trashcan isn't something you'd see very often in art.

nontraditional art

My nontraditional art i decided to do was a trash can. Most people think of sculptures and paintings when they think of art so i decided to make something that would make people actually think about the real meaning of art. i used aluminum foil as the medium because i felt that aluminum foil isn't a huge medium thats used in the art world.

this was the art is liked from the moment I saw it. I had seen it from the end of the hall and it was instantly my favorite piece of art.

This is the art that i saw and i wasn't entirely into it until i had read about it and looked at it for a while and i realized it was pretty alright.
When i saw this art i thought it was lazy and uninspired and i read about it and kept looking at it but i just couldn't get into it.

never got to say

When we were told to make an art piece based on something we never got to say i knew exactly how i was going to go about it. i knew i was going to use my love for a famous youtuber who had helped me through a time where i couldn't find happiness in anything. His videos helped me to become a happier person and to realize that not everything in life is bad.

The Best Art Supply Store Doesn’t Sell Art Supplies

Art doesn't have to be created by the "A grade" art supplies that art catalogs and art store sell. Art doesn't even need to be made using supplies found from hardware stores either. Art could be made by using anything and everything. Trash bags, plastic wraps, even rocks can all be used to create art. All you need to make art is an idea and a way to make that idea a reality

Postmodern principles

I feel that the way art has changed in the many years it's been changing has caused a way to be deeper with meanings. The ways people have found to explain abstract ideals throughout art styles is immense. These changes in art allow people to be more connected with the art they create as opposed to formal principles in art. These new at styles have no bounds and can be used to express any amount of emotions or thoughts.

Is art without meaning decoration?

I feel like art may not have a meaning to the person looking at it. However if the creator feels the art has a meaning then the art has the meaning it needs to have. Even decoration can have meaning if the one decorating or creating the decoration believes it does.
