Week15 : Artist Conversation


This week i would have to say by far the best of the galleries i been to all year. There were so many  Artist work i would of love to interview, but i wouldn’t had the time to do them all. An Artist who caught my eye  was Elia Murray because her pictures and sculputures were cool .  I love that Murray’s animal sculputures were just for fun! A lot of the artists have meaning behind all their art but I rarely hear any of them talking about a piece that really had no deep meaning. She likes animals and she decided to mold it for fun, I love how simple it was!

Elia told us  how her mother was an artist and her dad was an illustrator so she was born into art! She’s the first artist I’ve talked too with both parents being artists which I think is pretty cool. She started art seriously in High School. That’s when she really learned what she was good at and what she wasn’t. When she got to college, she wanted to actually become an English major but her mother disagreed with it so her she is majoring in Art! Her mom told her that art was the way to go. I found it pretty cool that her parents only wanted her to major in art.

Elia  pieces mainly were inspired by things she read or things she’s done.Her fish painting came from a poem that she read. The painting of the doctor with the child is from a healthcare article and her circus piece of the thin man holding the big woman is about finding a surface or a balance between a two-dimensional world. ELia was a cool artist and im glad she was my last interview because she was simply amazing . I hope all her dreams come true.
