Wk. 7 – Artist conversation-Andrea Williams


Artist: Andrea Williams

Exhibition: Sacrifice

Media: Ceramic, raw clay



About: Born and raised or grew up in riverside county. She is currently an undergraduate student. She used to be in a band and played the drums. Very musical, and music has always been in her family.

Formal: A lot of her art is clay based, but there is also some painting going on to. The art in itself seems sad, but she doesn’t use gloomy colors as if to show hope. Art is very unique and questions religion.

Content: Art is really about religion. Really makes the viewer question religion. Also makes them question art and the same time. Makes you wonder what art really is. She uses sacrifice as her main points within the art as well.

Synthesis: This type of art reminds me of some of my history. This art is gruesome, horrible, and sad but just like history very very real. It makes you question humanity itself it some ways.

He is a first year informative systems major. He is really into fitness and is a great runner. He is also of european descent and took this class for a GE.

Wk. 7 – Video

We tried to pick a real world topic(bullying) and show how it is unnecessary. Because we were able to use are phones the process was rather easy. We also didn’t need a lot of props or materials. The ending result was better than expected and really got are point across. Next time I might try to make the video longer and practice using some special effects.

Wk. 6 – Photowalk

The walk was very interesting. Iam currently  a 3rd year so unfortunately I had seen and been everywhere she(Maddie) had taken us. It was nice to walk around and see places, like the Japanese Gardens, that I had not been to in a while. My photographs I was looking to capture the walk as a whole. I did not want to take all my photos in one place, but try to capture as much of the campus as possible. Are guide was great. Maddie was super out going and lots of fun. She always checked to make sure the whole group was with her to, which was good. If I had to give advice, my advice would be maybe to talk more about the campus, and give some ‘fun facts’.

Exhibition: Fuse

Started out as a Sculpture Major. She likes metal art the best because its easy to manipulate. She is in the CSULB school of art. She is an undergrad and has emphasis in Metals and Jewelry. She loves to read and cook and is also married.

The colors were very metallic, with bronze and silver qualities. The textures were very smooth and I thought her art work flowed really well. Since her work was very metallic I thought it also looked very modern.

I didn’t really resonate with this artist. I liked her art a lot because I thought it seemed very unique and different.

WK 5 Cuisine

IMG_0300IMG_0299So first I made the second picture. It was suppose to be a crab cake burger and it turned out horribly and tasted worse than it looks. I tried to be different by using crab instead of beef and I wouldn’t suggest it personally. So then I made the top picture and it was much better.Pesto Chicken with Parmesan Pasta.
