Year: Year 12
Inspiration: I am extremely interested in architecture. I have aspired to become an architect for a long time and have been gradually gathering knowledge and experience necessary in order to become one. In the field of art, i am very fascinated in constructing sculptures. It is possible to put together an assemblage while keeping an open mind. Building sculptures allows me to work more freely in order to recreate what i had imagined in my mind. Also, i am a very keen photographer as i really enjoying taking photos with a variety of theme. I believe that taking photographs not only captures an object or scenery but a point in time also. This is because once, the image has been taken, that moment will not be lost. I am influenced by many artists from the past and the present as it is tremendously captivating when learning how other artists could generate such different and unique art. I am particularly fond of László Moholy-Nagy. I believe he is an artist who has achieved great success in many different categories in art. His Light Space modulator, in my opinion is one of the greatest artworks of all time.
Description: This is an untitled piece. This is an image that had been taken around the school. It has a very ominous tone to it, especially with the spikes pointing downwards from the top of the image. However the full object that creates the shadow cannot be viewed in the image. Thus the viewer is able to create an idea of what the object could be like from, the quite vibrant shadow. The movement of the shadow through the surface is very fascinating to the viewer as it is very natural yet looks like it had been placed there on purpose. The shiny material of the spikes, contrast well with the opaqueness of the shadow. The surface of the wooden door beneath the spikes is again very appealing. The light brings the grain of the wood forward while some parts are pushed backwards. I like this image because the composition of the objects present and the angle of the photo fit well as a whole. The dimensions of the image are 2592 by 1936.
