Wk 15: Artist – Hyeri Kim

This piece of art caught my attention because it looked like a fancy plate and a propeller at the same time. It also resembles a sun somehow. The piece of art just looks intricate.

It turns out that her exhibit is entitled “His Extravagant Proposal” and that all the works are related to weddings and love since she finds value in those two. These are also heavily influenced by her Korean culture shown through the wedding gowns displayed in the gallery.

The picture illustrates a powerful yet very fragile art piece. Generally, I think that her art works were amazing and that it demonstrated how she values love.

Wk 13: Artist – Jeff Dula

This piece of art caught my attention most probably because of the color of the moon in this picture. The colors have great contrast and on the lower left there’s a pattern on the land.

It is not very often that you see a red moon in the sky. Usually it’s during an eclipse that the moon turns blood red. However, the moon is either setting or rising in this picture. The sky also looks pretty smoky. Or that can be the author’s exaggerated way of painting clouds.

Overall, I think this is a cool painting. The colors are very vivid and even just watching the colors is enjoyable.

Wk 12: Classmate Interview – Savannah Cheung

I had the pleasure of interviewing Savannah Cheung last Thursday. Its hard for me to find someone new to interview because I’m usually a reserved and quiet person but I luckily met her when I was looking for Victor.
She is currently an undeclared freshman in CSULB and graduated from San Gabriel High School in the 626 area. She was born in Cambodia is part Chinese and is maybe Thai? She’s not sure. She likes to paint and draw. Because of her busy schedule, she doesn’t have much time to watch tv shows. During her free time she plays videogame consoles or watches YouTube videos.
Overall she’s a cool person so check out her site at: http://savannahcheung.com

Wk 12: Artist – Timothy Cooper

This art piece caught my attention because it took up a lot of space. Most of the room. Also because it was probably the only room open when I arrived to class.
The first thing that came to my mind was that it must’ve taken a long… long.. time to make all these plates by hand. 145 to be exact according to Timothy Cooper.
It was meant to show that people can work together which makes sense of why it’s in a plus shape. I think this art piece is awesome!

Wk 11: Student’s Choice – Sketch

For this week’s activity I decided to sketch a face. I’ve never sketched anyone’s face before. Ive also never taken an art class that taught me how to sketch. I always found it interesting to try and sketch a face because my grandfather and my mother both knew how to draw and paint.

I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to experiment with my inner artist. Yes the hat seems a bit off and the face is not 100% accurate, but I still feel accomplished. Im surprised that I spent many hours on this. I figured that it’s probably because I have no knowledge about shading.

I plan on giving this to my friend sometime. Hopefully she doesn’t find it too off haha.

Wk 11: Artist – Romina Del Castillo

I felt a connection with this particular drawing as I entered the art gallery today. The guy looks pretty bored and I feel like that’s me sometimes over the weekends.

Another reason why I picked this drawing is because I’ve been a little bit interested in sketching. I’ve always wanted to experiment with sketching for a long time. When I saw the gallery filled with sketches, I automatically knew I would find something nice inside.

When I saw this sketch, I thought about the tremendous amount of time it must have taken for the artist to create such a piece with all the shading and detailing.

Overall I think that the art looks great.
