Malcolm Ford – Senior Exhibition

Art comes in many forms and has a very inaccurate way of being created. For example it’s easy to call anything “Art” but it always seems to be up to the viewer what falls into these classifications. If I had to choose a constant theme I more than likely couldn’t as these were all done atContinue reading “Malcolm Ford – Senior Exhibition”

Only Breath by Ali Banisadr

By: Malcolm Ford This image gives off an overall creepy overtone. It almost seems like a masked specter is floating about creeping down the street. The figure appears as if they’re cloaked or draped with something shawl-like with a polka dotted undershirt, drifting through what I can only describe as a mix between a forestContinue reading “Only Breath by Ali Banisadr”

Love and Pain by Edvard Munch

By: Malcolm Ford This painting evokes a great sadness, everything about the pose screams this is a hug meant to quell a great agony. A shared sadness between the two figures maybe a loss or tragedy has befallen them and this is the only way that seems correct to comfort one another. Even though weContinue reading “Love and Pain by Edvard Munch”

The Caravan by Ali Banisadr

By: Malcolm Ford This image evokes a lot of emotions from the sporadic and bold use of these wild and swaying brush strokes to create such an interesting abstraction. It “looks” like a caravan by some stretch of the imagination, maybe even a circus caravan by the wheel in the lower half of the paintingContinue reading “The Caravan by Ali Banisadr”

Everydays:The First 5000 Days by Beeple

By: Malcolm Ford This picture speaks to the scale of what can be accomplished with the combination of years of effort. It’s simultaneously hopelessly inspiring and soul crushingly at the same. A reminder of what can be accomplished each day and something I struggle to find the time for somehow. While it’s hard to pickContinue reading “Everydays:The First 5000 Days by Beeple”

“The Moon” by Ling Jian

By: Malcolm Ford Just a beautiful personification of the celestial body. If that’s the exact effect the artist was going for. The overall pose reminds me of the arc the moon will follow at night. The expression she gives off is one of true disinterest, as if the viewer is the second thought in herContinue reading ““The Moon” by Ling Jian”

“Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman” by Roy Lichtenstein

By: Malcolm Ford A truly intricate piece of work with a very interesting but simple design. Reminds me of sludge or pond scum flowing down a strong river. The base of the chair and ottoman perfectly mimic the action of the roots of the tree trying to grasp onto and return to the soil likeContinue reading ““Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman” by Roy Lichtenstein”

“Home in the Mountains” by Catherine Haggarty

By: Malcolm Ford I find this piece really interesting in how it is abstract and almost doodle-like. Personally, I just see a mixture of a lot of jagged or sharp teeth and a myriad of faces along with a few shapes and forms like the foxes or the honey badger among other things. There isContinue reading ““Home in the Mountains” by Catherine Haggarty”

“Walk the Light” Genesis Tramaine

by: Malcolm Ford It’s hard to describe Genesis Tramaine’s specific style for portraiture but maybe that’s the point of their work. It’s easy to see just from the way it looks how it was created with raw emotion and expression but also deep consideration of what to highlight or draw attention to in that portrait,Continue reading ““Walk the Light” Genesis Tramaine”

Unveiling for Michael Rakowitz’s ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ in Trafalgar Square (Lamassau)

by: Malcolm Ford I feel this is a great unveiling of Michael Rakowitz’s project as a whole. ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ is the name of the project which seems to be a protest against the destruction and frankly pillaging of Iraqi art to be put in Western museums. A common and most strikingContinue reading “Unveiling for Michael Rakowitz’s ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ in Trafalgar Square (Lamassau)”
