WEEK 14: Artist Conversation- Emily Babette

IMG_2307This week in the Gatov Gallery, I got to see many artists’ art work. They all displayed their work together and had a list of who did what painting. I was attracted to Emily’s work because of it’s  gothic look. Sadly I didn’t get to meet the artist, but it did not stop me writing on her work. IMG_2311

In her painting she used lots of dark colors giving it the gothic vibe. The materials she used were charcoal, arches oil paper, oil paint and wood panels. She wants her viewers to have a psychological reaction. She views her work as magic realism. Her work showed an evil side of a human being, such as an alter ego.IMG_2309

She uses this gothic style to give it an eery feeling. As you stare at the paintings it seems as if they are looking into your soul. They have such realistic figures. Since I didn’t get a chance to know more about the artist I still found her work to be very inspirational and interesting.

I personally liked her paintings because they looked really cool. You could tell she put time and effort into her work. It would be really cool if I got painted in a gothic style. I would like to see how that would turn out.

WEEK 14: Classmates Conversation: Brianna Lopez & Franklin Chhay

This week I partnered up with Franklin Chhay and Brianna Lopez. Franklin is a sophomore and is majoring in Criminal justice.He likes to talk to his girlfriend,play video games like star wars and Metal gear solid. His favorite food is Hamburgers. His response to the question of the week was “Video games because I like to play video games a lot”. I can see video games as a form of art because you are able to be very creative with the story, character,setting,etc.

Brianna Lopez is a sophomore and is majoring in Healthcare administration. She favorite food is everything, because she loves of  all kind food. She loves to edit videos on final cut pro and does 15sec videos on Instagram. We have this in common since we both want to make youtube videos. Her response for the question of the week was that she considers Instagram art because you can edit pictures and videos to express yourself or your ideas. This platform has allowed her to show her editing skills.
