NYC Art Trip

The senior art students at Denison were lucky enough to go on an art trip to New York City.  We went to the MOMA one day and 13 galleries in Chelsea the next.  Here is an over view of the galleries.

Nick Cave: Art had to do with the black experience, but I didn’t figure that out until someone told me.  Once told that, there were a few pieces I had a hard time relating to his over all theme. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.51.44 AM

Deborah Zlotsky: The geometric shapes of her art look almost mechanical with various lines that run through the paintings. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.53.47 AM

David McQueen: We got a chance to meet this artist and hear him talk about his nautical themed art.  His art is meant to represent the emotions of the sea and its constant transformations.  The piece below is a mix between a whale and a boat. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.55.29 AM

Alyson Shotz: The interesting thing about her paper work shown in the picture below is that it isn’t as textured as it appears.  The piece is actually a photocopied piece of crumpled paper that is then crumpled again to make the art you see before you.  Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.56.19 AM

Shai Kremer: Kremer’s “World Trade Center: Concrete Abstract” are a series of images that layer photos of the 911 attacks and the rebuilding of the world trade centre.  ATIV Odyssey_20140920_036

Melanie Daniels: The pieces are very dreamlike with the layering of chaos often found in dreams. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.57.23 AM

Eileen Neff: The photographed images of Neff often includes nature, mostly trees, and a sense of distortion to the image.Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.58.59 AM

Gary Panter: His pieces seem to make the viewer think of adventure and childhood imaginary games.  He achieves this sense of adventure through the use of bright colors and various topics like heroes, boats, and dinosaurs. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.00.23 AM

José Parlá: Layering of color and graffiti-like strokes make Parlá’s paintings appear as if there was a lot of thought and work put into it.  He is by no means a lazy artist. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.02.43 AM

David Hockney: Uses different medians and techniques to create works about woodland landscapes.Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.05.19 AM

Mark Beard: When painting, Beard creates an alter ego where his style changes as he paints himself as different people within his works. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.06.20 AM

Jerome Lagarrigue: The painting on a large scale with big strokes adds to the emotions often felt in Lagarrigue’s portraits of people. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.07.22 AM

Judith Schaechter: A stain glass artist who creates her own world and characters in her art. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.08.13 AM

Michael De Feo: Flowers are a main topic within De Feo’s works, because (as I have heard) flowers represent the circle of life. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.09.58 AM

Wayne White: His work is television fun with the imagination of all ages.  He works in different medians, and will often create fun but creepy sculptures out of cardboard. ATIV Odyssey_20140920_044
