Doing the Jackson Pollock, at first I thought it was easy, like as simple as just like throwing away your brush and doing strokes with it. But, the real thing about this, is knowing where to perfectly stroke that liquid from your brush to your canvass or t-shirt. What I did on my t-shirt is that I wanted to make it very pale, but very colorful. As I’m putting on the masking tape to create a good pattern, I was thinking of where am I to do the strokes? As soon as I am now able to stick it out, I started on a trial and error basis. I wanted to be sure to make it a point that I’ll be doing this depending on my mood, and how art could affect. I am bored at first, I feel steady and plain, there are parts that I don’t like the brush strokes, there are strokes that is too watery, too thick, too light, too dark. But as I’m going along with the project, I noticed a very good, and colorful combination over the white shirt, that actually boosts up my mood to do strokes more. I tried on different colors onto different parts, I tried throwing strokes near and throwing strokes far. The environment also affects how I do the strokes, and actually the people surrounding me while doing this project. I must say, it’s not really easy to do a unique art. It takes a creative method and idea that may change people’s perspective in art, just like Jackson Pollock, he made a mark in the art industry, and now he is being recognized as one of the famous artists in the world. You would thought of it as, it’s just easy, he is just doing some strokes, pouring his brushes into different paints and acrylics and throwing away brushes, and then boom, it’s an artwork already. It may be just as that, but it is way deeper on Jackson Pollock’s perspective in his art.
As I previewed my work, people may see it just as simple as brush strokes, but not for the person who made it. In every color you may have forgotten the exact time, happening, and the feelings while doing the project, I believe, that whenever you see that shirt, you would always remember the fun in doing, and treasure it. It may not be as beautiful as Jackson Pollock’s work, but I believe it’s way too meaningful than everybody’s work, because it is built out of time and courage where to place every strokes you made. The project for me is very meaningful, that in life, there will be ups and downs, happiness and sadness, expectations and disappointments, acceptance and rejection, but what makes your life more meaningful is how’d you make it colorful and how’d you learn from every lesson life is trying to teach us. It is always what comes from your hear not from your mind.
On Randy David’s perspective about ‘selfies’ I will have to agree in every statement that he’s saying. It answered almost everything I couldn’t explain when people asks, “Why are you taking a selfie?”
Taking ‘selfies’ are like taking a photograph of yourself either in a place where you want to save memories, or just to simply pose and share it for appreciative purposes. I believe it is seeing the creativeness of oneself and treasuring the moments you captured. A lot of people are involved in social media, thus it gives a negative impression to what we are doing, especially when posting something ambitious, mean, or awkward.
I believe a ‘selfie’ has always something to do with capturing happy moments in some place or elsewhere and self-appreciation. :)
