Alan Balisi was born in the Philippines, an area plagued with violence, the technique that he uses in his art is used through oil paints, and his pictures convey a sense of silence, and eerie fear.
Describe-This artwork appears to be a painting, done with oil and features very sparse colors. When I first see the art, I notice the people sitting down. You are unable to tell if its day or night because the picture is taking place in a room.
Analyze- As stated before, colors in the image are very sparse, and makes the people seem to to be drained of life. The work likes like somebody took a picture of this happening in a dark room.
Interpret- When I look at this artwork, I get a sense of dread, like I don't belong there. Like there is something I should not be seeing in this image. I feel that these people shouldn't be there and are forced to be there.
Evaluate- This artwork is great because when I see this piece, I immediately feel uneasy, it conveys its message well.
Describe- This is another oil painting with some sort of note being exchanged by two people.
Analyze- The images has no color, so it creates a stark sense of tension.
Interpret- I feel like some sort of covert note is being passed between the two people which could possibly signify some sort of rebellion.
Evaluate- The image is properly able to convey a mood of secrecy, using the lack of color, gestures in the image by the people.
