ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Sage is an undergraduate student here at CSULB finishing up her last semester majoring in Fine Arts.  She was always appreciative of art ever since she was young, but started refining her skills the more she grew up.  She began to grow more fond of sculpture since.

FORMAL ANALYSIS:

The sculpture consists of various shapes among the wall, it’s 3-D imprinted figure planted among the wall.  It’s white in color and has many circles and bumps across the room.   In the middle of the room was a gold chain to contrast the white background.

CONTENT ANALYSIS:

This room gave off an environment of clean and tidy.  The white bumps are supposed to represent the cells on your body and how bacteria can infect your body and take over.  The message that one should take care of your body more.  Sage dealt with many diseases and felt connected to this exhibit.

SYNTHESIS:

This was an interesting exhibit for me because it contained a scientific aspect.  The term “BIO” became more existent as I discovered the meaning behind the bumps on the wall.  The fact that she took the time to make each and little bump unique added to the feeling of the piece.  The environment was neat and clean as opposed to last week’s evil environment.img_2178.jpg
