Sydney Cobb Alamance Community College Fireflies, 2011
Statement: This piece portrays a childhood memory of catching mystical fireflies in one of my grandma’s mason jars. I always loved opening the jar and watching them fly away.
The inspiration I drew from El Anatsui’s artwork is the free flowing nature he gives each piece. My piece is a free flowing and natural piece much like his artwork.
Bio: I am gradually coming close to graduating with an associate degree in Graphic Design and Advertising. Art has been a main interest and subject in my life since before I can remember. My father always pushed me to peruse art and try to send myself over the edge of comfort I was at. My main art inspirations are nature, music, and poetry.
So, today is the first day of Spring 2012 semester and I am fully prepared to kick the living crap out of my 7:00 am math class. I had to type this somewhere to solidify the thought I keep repeating to myself. That is all. :)
