The artist that I got to explore this week is named Sean Joy Rosario Cabanig. She is an artist that is a 5th year, undergraduate student here at CSULB. She is getting her B of A in the metals department. Some of the things that she is trying to explore in her work is obviously working with metal and she wants to focus on the environment, humor of her and others, and emotions of herself and others. Some of her interests are reading and she loves cats.
The type of work that she does is very sharp and hard. Since everything that she has is metal, you would imagine that it is very hard and sharp and has a lot of straight and perfect edges. The colors that are mostly used in her artwork is dark colors. Mostly black, silver, gray and like copper colors. The materials that were mostly used of these pieces of art were copper things and metal. There are a lot of deeper meanings behind these things other than the metal, she uses it to describe something and that is very cool.
In these pieces of art, she is being very creative and I do feel like there was something in these that she is trying to get at. She told me that she was into creative writing before she got her interest in metal working and that is pretty cool because I can tell that there is so much creativity in her work that she is trying to explore. she loves working with metal and with her creative background, she is doing some cool things to express herself.
I thought that overall her artwork was so cool and expressive. I really liked the necklace that she made out of metal and that cool necklace that she made. I feel that Sean Joy is a very talented artist who has a lot to say with her work and it is very expressive to how she is and what her life outside of art is like. This was a cool exhibit to check out and I really liked everything that she did this week.
