Clouds of Reality
Whatever the weather, artists for centuries have been inspired to make art in response to it. Art, fashion, and photography throughout history, have revolutionised the way we think about politics, environmental/social issues, culture and even art itself. In the 21st century we are bombarded, through the media, by a constant stream of news, flipping from the personal to the global in seconds. This information often presents us with serious issues surrounding the weather and environment and this is what L3 YR1 have responded to.
Through this painting I was trying to show the effects of pollution on our environment and make the viewer more aware of this situation. One of the artists who inspired me for this painting was Nguyen Thanh, who has created an exhibition about pollution. I wanted to create this artwork because I want to be a fine artist specialising in painting for my future career.
