Each week, I am going to try and share with the work and ideas of one of my advaced art students. This week it is Shannon. Shannon is a senior here at PHS and the following are her thoughts and ideas in regard to her work.
"My work is not like many other students work here at PHS. I have never ending ideas and thoughts. I like to do things that will make people ask questions or that will protray a certain emotion. Sometimes, I like to send a message through art and I would like those who look at my art work to feel something from what I have done. Everyone has a different idea about how objects are seen. For me, I see things out of the ordinary.Someone once told me that those who love art are not afraid to be abstract, but those who love science and math always have to have perspective. When I use color I tend to use earth tones, I feel they can send a message better than anything else because you always see them. But, the colors I have had great intrest in lately is black and white. The main reason is this semester Mrs. Phegly asked us to pick a theme, I chose emotions. Emotions can be seen through anyone. You may be sad, loney or confused, but people get this way for different reasons. Black and white helps you see exactly what mood your going for. It lets those who are looking at your artwork really focus on the image, rather than all the color or lines in the piece."
