Learning Log #12

The art exhibit that my partner and I chose to look at was All art is Photography. It was a really interesting exhibit. Some of the pictures were in black and white while others were in color. The whole exhibit was very dimly lit with an orange lighting. It gave a nice feel to the art work. One of the pieces that I found interesting was the art done by Antonio Perez Rio.

His art work was about how in this day and age people always have their mobile phones. People use their mobile phones to take pictures of everything and that included people using their phones to take pictures of famous artworks in museums. I really liked this piece because it really says a lot about our society today. Another piece that I found really interesting was the piece called “The Cave”by Nick Waplington.

I found this piece interesting because I interpreted this artwork as some kind of door and how it decorated really beautifully. Like it was talking about the world outside is so beautiful and how people are stuck inside. I wasn’t far off the art was about “how prisoners who have spend their whole life in a cave, are held in chains. All they see of the hustle and bustle of the people in front of the cave are shadows cast by the light of a fire on the back wall” I also found this artwork interesting because of the situation we’re in now and how we are all stuck inside while there is such a beautiful world out there that we can’t see and enjoy.
