My art is a cardboard model of a Jeep body. The subject matter is my own 1995 2.5L Jeep Wrangler YJ in Patriot Blue. The most prominent elements in my piece are form and space. The media is cardboard. I used an exacto knife to cut the cardboard the connected the pieces with glue and masking tape. My Jeep inspired me to make this art, but to replicate the perfection of a Jeep as my goal defeated me as it can not be accomplished. It represents the social issue of time and taking sick days because I was not able to finish because of being sick. My art expressions disappointment because I wanted to finish it but the Taco Bell I ate for lunch has my stomach upset so I do not have the energy to. Throughout this project I learned that creating a model vehicle take a lot of work and detail. It is not as finished as my initial thoughts, and I will not be as ambitious in projects that I have only about a week to do.
I am an aspiring artist who is interested in learning and exploring art. I always try to do new things and expand my artistic horizon. I don't intend on a career in art so the more broadly I can learn the better.
