Art exhibitions are presentations of various works by different artists. They aid us in analyzing the unique styles in works of art done by individual artists. This exhibit includes both three dimensional and two dimensional works by Jammes Joffe, Mary Morrell, Theresa Northway and Melanie Rush Davis among others.
The exhibit collection by James Joffe includes a number of paintings. These images are two dimensional expressions of the craftsmanship of this artist. James Joffe’s works reflect a clear and focused mind that is attentive to nature. His use of color is also effective in expressing different emotions to the audience. This artist also portrays a sense of awareness of his environment. His choice of items such as gourds shows an aspect of cultural appreciation while the leopard and the flowers indicate his awareness of the surrounding he lives in. The works of this artist influence the audience to realizing a consciousness and a brittle expression in the contemporary world by use of very random yet day to day subjects. The artist has works that portray no specific item, but use color to appeal to emotion. Its beauty is in the effect it creates that indeed the work attempts to explain the mind of an artist and his style. The theme of his work is nature and emotion. Even so, the artist invokes wild emotion in his audience by using different colors and large strokes to the paintings.
The works of Mary Morrell are also two dimension water color ceramics. In the exhibition, the artist uses very few colors while yet providing attention to detail in the piece of work. These work together portray a careful personality and a keen one at that. The works are able to tell a story by allowing audiences to view very many aspects in the same piece. Mary Morrell’s works are calm rather than wild and present serenity where an emotional effect is expected. The artist’s theme is probably narration as she can tell a story though a single piece of work. She also aims at enabling her audience pay attention to detail in order to find continuity in matters of life. While her art is unique, it is also demanding of attention and peace of mind. The thought that comes to one’s mind when viewing the works of Mary Morrell is; that she works in a very serene environment. She is also likely to work during the day. She is likely to reflect and repaint an image of her study room on a mug or plate.
The works of other artists such as Theresa Northway are three-dimensional pieces of art. They are a portrayal of great skill in artwork. These seem to be more hectic to create than two dimensional works. They are not only beautiful to the eye but may serve to compliment nature and expression of human thoughts in a more solid manner. They are story tellers, as well.
Melanie Rush Davies
In the next exhibit where Melanie Rush’s works are displayed, a sense of reality and fantasy is experienced. Photography captures real items and even when they have been edited; they are still reflections of reality. The theme of these two dimensional pieces is bringing reality to seem like fantasy. The photographs also solidify real objects so much so that it brings out passion and technology together. It invokes feelings of amazement at the different combinations of various aspects such as technology, reality and beauty put together in art. The entire gallery is a display of different artistic aspects that at the end of the show invoke knowledge that art is diverse and specific at the same time.
Every collection invokes different feelings which are still artistic. The exhibit creates a unique feeling in its audiences and imparts a different message from the next. Even when the pieces tell the same story, they do so differently. This keeps an audience attentive and intrigued. Every artist’s work brings out his or her characteristics to the audience.
