2011 -- 3.2 (Spring) Visual Arts

Charcoal Eyes

by Blossom O’radovich


I find inspiration from many different areas of my life and through the experimentation with various mediums continue to learn my strengths and weaknesses as an artist. I can draw inspiration from anything and everything but choose my subjects mostly based on personal impact and secondly on aesthetics. I try to simplify my artwork to show the most important attributes of the subject but also enjoy realism. In contrast to my procedurally limiting studies such as chemistry, physics, and calculus, the arts affords me a creative but also therapeutic outlet I otherwise would not have. My drive comes from an opinion that art really is good or bad, in that it is not subjective; my art is either good or bad and my drive to produce “good” art inspires me to learn and grow as an artist.
