This week in the Gatov galleries, there was an exhibit of fifteen students art work. It was interesting because each student has their own style and some have already been profiled earlier in the year by our class. Because of that, it kind of threw me off when I realized some of the same art I have seen. Then I saw an artist who I have talked to in week 3, Yiren Kwak, who cleared up some of the confusion.
Kwan was saying that it was a group exhibition of fifteen artist, who are all friends. They help each other out with each others work by criticism and ideas. The artist within the exhibit are related to a community working off of each other and growing together and as individuals that way. In the “real world”, not all artist are friends. So the program on campus allows the artists to be friends, yet they are harsh on the criticism to all help each other. Having the chance to talk with Yiren Kwan again, she still continues with same style, yet works on other projects, such as portraits and realism. With a question about how long it takes her, “Each painting is its own process.” Time doesn’t limit the art, for art has no limits and time has no meaning.
