Promoting and strengthening the artistic and cultural development of Orange County, North Carolina
The first of the Cedar Ridge High School IB Senior Art Student Shows, featuring work by Lee Lyons and Ariel Blanchard.
Inspired by the viewer-centric philosophy of the Neo-Dadaists, my body of work was created as an opportunity for self-exploration on the part of the viewer. Using papier collé as my medium to express my take on the human experience, I created artworks that encapsulate what it means to reflect upon one’s role in both the natural and manmade worlds.
My collection of art will explore different surrealist ideas. I was inspired by the early Surrealist movement along with artists such as Max Ernst, René Magritte, and Salvador Dali. The focus is on the exploration of parts of the human body through a surrealist lens.
Show runs February 15 through March 5, with a public reception during the February Last Friday Art Walk, Friday, February 24.
