Kandinsky’s work is very intricate and interesting to look at. I find it fascinating how he works with his sensory issues, how he heard music when creating art, or saw colors when listening to music. While looking at his art, I like to imagine what he might have heard or saw when he created the piece. It was something different to see, other than the usual portraits or paintings of landscapes you may see. Very open to interpretation.
- The subject of my Bird’s eye/Bugs’ eye is are my kokeshi dolls, a Shinto good luck statue that represents friendship and are believed to protect the souls of children. These are very important to me, as I feel they bring me good luck and keep a mini kokeshi doll charm with a bell on my wallet for wealth. Bells are considered to call upon the kami, or Shinto deities, to watch over you. I used a red sheet of paper and flash light in order to add a pink tint to the photo which I brought out through editing. The bug’s eye is my favorite of the two, as I spent quite a while on it.
Using my Kotori Minami and Shoto Todoroki figures, I took a few action poses of Kotori at the beach and Shoto in a fighting scene. I wanted a more exciting photo with a firey background, but didn’t get around to doing it, so I settled with his ice instead. Kotori is enjoying a nice time at the beach, I wanted a splash of water as if she is splashing, but I could not do that without a huge mess afterwards.
- To me, the word conceptual is a very vague word. I take part in a lot of conceptual activity such as poetry and art. I convey messages of significance through these things. In this photograph, I convey a message I think about a lot. Even in the dark, you will find beauty. In evil, there is kindness, and in kindness, evil. Though a look into my mind and you will see, it is a barren place, yet if you dig deep enough you will find something extravagant. I always see things on a deeper level than the surface, a deeper meaning in the simplest things, and I convey this through my art oftentimes. The world is a dark place, yet you can find beauty in that darkness if you look hard enough. Turn it around, ad look from another angle. Seek a lesson in misfortune, and find beauty in the dirt and grime and simply be truthful and transparent, as the truth is usually ugly, but sometimes it is what you need to hear.
