Classroom Lightbox

Using a light-box is inspired by the media advertising to depict the separation of beauty and the beauty myth of women in today's generation. The huge interest generated from this work has encouraged me to continue exploring this medium and create further pieces. A truly captivating and striking piece with the use of negative and positive light with hopes to stand out from the rest of pieces. The photographic image has always interested me in terms of how the perspectives of an image changes how one can view the same object in different ways. The definition of an image never stays the same. Negative space is as important in my design as the visual elements. One of the reasons why I feel in love with photography is the way light and shade creates the forms, and also because it all happens very quickly. The play of depth of field, in and out of focus, creates other issues that are challenging. Each work is a combination of the relationship of at least two images with textures and color. A few of the images are left in black, and color is added as an emotional effect. Each image is interesting in itself The smoke along with the image but the relationship of the images create the real statement. "The otherness" I call the feeling when one fantasizes and one cannot touch or feel but are left with an often-indescribable mood. This indefinable, ephemeral mood is what I seek to express. The subject matter often changes but this feeling and a sense of movement is always prevalent in my work. The subject matter of my work usually deals with the human physical and psychological issues of media, society, growth and change.

The use of a light-box stems from Jeff Glass; His signature works are large transparencies mounted on light boxes; he conceived this format when he saw back-lit advertisements at bus stops during a trip between Spain and London. Since the mid-1990s, Wall has also made large scale black and white photographs. The use of a light-box with intention to display something meaningful and with depth beautifully amplifies the powerful wash of light and shadow which itself belies the light-box.

Triptych Digital Montage

Artist Summary:
This piece was composed of one scanned image of my hand and a photocopy of Teen Vogue on a page about Emma Watson. The rest of the images were selected based on their intriguing qualities.It involved many different forms of digital art such as fashion, love, beauty, and emotion, as well as and creative interest in tattoos and surreal art. All three compositions were designed differently but show the same overall image intensity per each montage. Showing collective images will catch your attention and attract your eyes along the way.

Art Cart

Art in Public Places is a social art experiment that promotes a proactive way to get the community involved with participating in personal creativity and artistic culture. Starting with a cart stocked full of local artwork, blank canvases, and art materials, people are invited and welcomed to create their own artwork in exchange for art in the cart. This creates a continuous flow of new artwork being created and donated back to the cart in exchange for an art piece created by another participant. This project was a positive and successful way of spreading the wonderful creativity we all have to share.

Nature Gallery

Set up a gallery in Wingfiled Park. The gallery hopes the viewer, when looking through the frames, will consider the questions What is Nature? and the conflict of how “man-made” can a thing be before it is no longer nature. Nature? Every single frame offers the viewer the opportunity to decide what is nature and what isn’t. These picture frames are specifically placed in hopes to capture the beautiful nature of Wingfield Park, and yet man-made objects intrude from all directions. The frames hold within them trees, water, earth, rocks, as well as concrete, construction, metal, and brick. Does the angle at which you stand change your view? Or can you look through the frame from the completely opposite direction? Either way you are offered the choice. Is what you see truly nature?
