Medium of the Art / Technique of the Artist: This piece of artwork was one that I felt looked simple to the eye but difficult to execute. I'm no artist myself so I cannot say how complex this work was. Although I can say that the way you see it now in this picture is an entire different experience to seeing it there. What drew me to this piece was the sort of optical illusion that it created, especially when I crossed my eyes. There is not too much you can say about the meaning of the painting, but the way I see it is that there are rhombuses radiating and rippling out from the center if you stare at it long enough. It made me feel lost in concentration which now that I look back on it, was a great thing.
Art and Core Values: This one is kind of a stretch but stick with me. I chose this sculpture as a representation of my core values because it reminded me of a large brain. The core value that goes along with this would be a mixture of curiosity, intelligence, and wonder and awe. I appreciate being able to feel those feelings anytime of day because it humbles me and lets me step back and look at the complexity and beauty of this world. It also helped me with any doubts when it came to my faith.
