The artist that I talked to this week was named Alicia Keyworth. She is a very cool artist who loves art. Alicia is an undergraduate student who is studying to get her BFA in Art Education. Her hobbies include weaving, environmental issues, Sheila Hicks who is an artist who’s work that she loves. She also loves her cats and her favorite animal is an alpaca. The work that she likes to explore is weaving and she loves to reflect on environmental issues.
The art piece that she did was called Wasteful Growth. It is a woven piece that is using cotton yarn, trash bags and metallic yarn. This piece to me feels very flat. It is very simple and all I can really say is that it is flat. The colors on this piece of artwork are mostly dark colors like black and gold and silver. It is a very straight piece of artwork, doesn’t have a lot of things jumping out at us.
Her inspiration for this artwork was the Pacific Garage Patch. She just loves to do pieces on the environment and on just ways to fix the environment or to make it stand out as an important issue in America today. Her style is very free in the sense of the material, but structured in the sense of the process of making the artwork.
I really liked her artwork. I thought it was a cool representation of who she is and what she likes to do. I also thought that it was simple and she go to the point of what she was trying to convey to her audience. It really reminds me of how I live my life. I am just a very plain and simple person and don’t really take things to the extreme. This is what stood out to me for her artwork. Alicia was a really cool artist to get to know and wish her nothing but success in her art!
