Hi guys, I'd really like it if you'd all leave some feedback on this - my portfolio for admissions into the art department at Appalachian State University. I've tried to select a range of artworks that I've done that are among by best. Here are my top 10 pieces.
Manipulations are probably the art form I am most experienced in. I chose two manipulations that I liked personally and are also among the more popular in my gallery. I think both of these show interesting composition and are technically well done.
I've been making jewelry for years now, and though I don't want to take away space from other art works, I thought it was appropriate for there to be a little craftiness showing. This piece is special because I actually made it for an interview at ASU.
Collage has been a recent interest for me, and I've made quite a few in just the past few months. These two artworks were my selections. "Panic" especially means a lot to me, as I based it around my emotions about my mental illness diagnoses. Interestingly enough, both of these collages contain eyes.
Evidence of drawing skills is one of the requirements for being accepted; unfortunately, I think I'm a bit lacking in this area. I tried including drawings of different subject matter though, and used two different mediums. I don't think these drawings are bad, they just aren't quite as good as I like. But I do think it's nice that David Tennant is in my portfolio XD
I started working on this painting when I realised that I was going to need to have some form of traditional artwork in my portfolio. It's only my second attempt at oil painting, and it's a portrait of my horse. I pretty much feel the same way about this as I do about my drawings.
I'm hoping that including something like this will help my portfolio stand out from the rest. I think it's good that I have something different and creative to add.
