Memento

The blood on your fingertips

ARTIST STATEMENT:

Memento is a distinctly personal piece. It's meant to make sense of an event that occurred to me that I've always tried to be at peace with. I utilized clay and blood as my two materials. The clay had a magnificent skin color and texture while the blood signified the blood on someones hand through being abuse. Also the taste of blood. The organic shape although abstract, seems familiar, almost hand-like. 

 

ASSIGNMENT:

Use no more than three materials to create a sculpture that can be held comfortably in one hand. 

OBJECTIVE:

Gain an awareness of how materials, processes and the elements and principles of art and design can be used to visually communicate significant meaning. Develop an idea based on personal memory that challenges perceptions of souvenirs and escalates the sensual awareness of touch.
