This exhibit was a chance to create my own theme and come up with my own cohesive body of work. My inspiration came from culture’s intrusion upon nature and I sought out to create pieces that would confront this issue. Through my research I was able to embrace the works of other artists in respects to both style and reasoning. Artists I will discuss as particularly influencing are of the impressionist era, and specifically Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, and various other artists. I will present pieces of my work and help people to understand some basic art terms and classifications.
