Medium of the art/Technique of the artist:
The piece of art that immediately caught my eye when I first walked into the Harn was the large piece on the wall by the name of “American Abstraction”. This art was a three-dimensional figure that was completely abstract, meaning it was left to the viewer to interpret the piece in their own way. Seeing this piece in person allowed me to better see the way light was strategically placed around it to accentuate different shadows and highlights. What I found to be most amazing about it was the fact that it seemed to be made of different materials all composed into one. I obviously did not get to touch the artwork, and it was very heavily painted so it was hard to see, but from what I could distinguish, it was made of a metallic type substance. To me, it showed how a busy world and a busy life could actually be quite beautiful when you take a step back and look at it as a whole. It made me feel confused at first, but then relaxed to know that whatever I interpret ends up being my choice anyway.
