My artwork is a bandanna with pockets. The subject is function and form, so I named my piece: “Blandanna”. This is because of the dull colors and minimal functionality. The most prominent elements in my piece are value and texture. My art is made of cloth which I cut up and glued together. I also sewed the buttons of the pockets on. This work is inspired by the lack of pockets on modern clothing. No social issue is expressed and my piece expresses a carefree emotion. My goal as an artist was to create something fashionable and functional. This piece flawlessly accomplished my goals because it is both of those things. This work taught me that sewing is time consuming but satisfying. The final piece is what I imagined because it closely resembles my initial sketch. My future artworks should have better sewing.
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.
