Artists: Thanya Guevara & Ariana Santana
Statement: Our work takes and borrows from numerous artists and artistic movements to bring forward what we most admire and love from each. From Minimalism, we take this use of industrial materials (in our specific case: wire and plastic mesh) to create the different components of our sculpture without the inclusion of distractions that are part of other art movements. We presents work that is objective and reduced to its purest elements. To present our work in site-specific outdoor environment borrows from environmental/ecological art that strides to both interact and juxtapose the environment that it is in. The space we will occupy is one that typical allows individuals to relax and enjoy the environment,but our work hopes to interrupt this mindless interaction and create a more meaningful view of the space and the implications that are overlooked to maintain such an area.
