About the Art
Description of artwork: Paint, wood, newspaper and beads
"Art is not always about pretty things...
.... Its about who we are...
... What happened to us...
... And how it has affected our lives..."
This piece tells a story of hope and beauty.
The colours aim to send a message that sometimes we experience difficult times, or we experience ease (the dark and the light), or we experience sadness and happiness at the same time.
But this is our stories. Its the good and the bad that make us who we are.
It is the mix of the fortunate and the unfortunate realities we face that builds character and makes us beautiful.
The painting also consists of textures telling the viewer that our experiences are different and unique, but still beautiful.
To produce this piece i used recycled materials such as newspapers. This is to show the viewer that anything can be made beautiful and it is up to you to see and accept that. In addition the board i used had a flaw and the flaw is made to blend in... Because that is the reality of life, we all have flaws which are beautifully put together.
In conclusion, art is something that may be interpreted in many ways. So do not let this description limit you!
"Art speaks where words are unable to explain."
