This is my poster that was displayed with my work in my senior exhibit at our Spring Art Show. The statement is only an exerpt from my full artist statement, but I felt that this portion from it did the best job of representing my feelings about my work. While there really was a canvas broken over my head, it was not really my photo printed on it (you think I’d be able to waste that kind of money?). I composed a similar photo with the same concept about a year ago, so it was cool to be able to go back and create a sort of “revamped” version of the original.
I have been working towards my black box senior exhibit since I began art at DGS my freshman year, and since then have taken 11 semesters worth of art classes. I was extremely pleased with how the show turned out, as everyone’s work looked amazing hanging all together as one cummulative compilation. For all of the stress that was caused over preparing for the show, it was extremely rewarding, and it’s ultimately rather sad as I now realize that my high school career has (finally) come to an end.
