Week 13 – Artist Interview – Jeff Dull

So this week, I really enjoyed this piece by Jeff Dull.  This piece was very inspiring and thoughtful because it reminds me of a place I see often, the beach. Not only is that the case, but it displays the beach in a very sinister and dark point of view. Usually, you would see the beach as a relaxation place and a fun place to hangout and have a barbecue, but in this painting, the beach is depicted as very sinister and evil and an unenjoyable place to be at. The sand is black and the ocean looks tainted and the sun is an evil red with very mysterious clouds in the background. This painting gives off a very depressing vibe but it also gives me a lot of insight. It showed me that although you may see things in one light, others may view the exact same thing in a different point of view and may have a completely different opinion on it. All in all this piece is also very beautiful and I enjoyed observing it. If you are able to find more of Jeff Dull’s works, you should definitely check them out! They are truly amazing.

Week 13 – Classmate Interview – Tanner Binsfield

So for this week, I had the pleasure of meeting Tanner, a sophomore at Cal State Long Beach. He is from the middle of nowhere (because I don’t know where his hometown is located 😀 ) and is an aspiring physical therapists. He is studying Kinesiology. He really loves studying sports injuries and is hoping to be able to analyze them in the future. One of Tanner’s major hobbies and passions is basketball. He played basketball for four years in high school and is an NBA fanatic. We talked about our favorite teams and discussed our home team, the Lakers. We spoke about how they are having a rough season but are slowly getting back on their feet. In regards to art, Tanner does not enjoy art very much but he does find that some of the art he discovered in this class have been very cool and entertaining while others may have been confusing. I really enjoyed meeting Tanner and I wish him the best for his future endeavors. You should check out his content @ http://tannerbinsfeld.com/! He has a lot of cool posts that are very interesting.

Week 11 – Artist Interview – Wesley Hicks

So this week, this particular sculpture really caught my eye. It caught my eye because it was similarly with what I affiliate with, music. I really love music and it’s one of my passions, and although I do not play a clarinet (at least I think it is a clarinet), it still reminded me of my passion.
