THEME• The presence of line, shape and form are involved in the following art pieces.• Artists can connect with content and form, even though their painting techniques and subject matter are unique.• All the pieces I am about to present have the the same visual experience. They are abstract or cubist and all have implied lines that keep eyes moving around the canvas. Also linear lines make up the edges of forms that are expressed boldly throughout all the pieces.• The geometric shapes and colors repeated through out these pieces of art is what ties all they different artists together, they all have unity yet variety.• Each artist has their own perspective on art, something that is unique, yet in the end their vision can end up looking like another art piece. This happens through inspiration or by complete chance. A work of art can look similar to other pieces but can still be completely different.

INSTALLATION • I would like have these paintings hanging in a one large room. • The room will have random white geometric shaped walls coming out in which the painting will be hang on. • There will be spot lights pointed directly on the paintings . • They rest of the room will have dimmed overhead lighting. • This will make the paintings seem like they are popping off the walls, and be the main focus in the room. • The walls without paints will have matte gray scale tones.
