This piece is a painting exploring protest and the right to speak. The artist has used oil paint and smooth brush strokes to produce smooth blends which are easy on the eye. I will try and produce the same sort of effect with soft pastels when I come to do my final piece. The composition consists of several protestors in the fore group, and famous protestors' names in the background, backed by an a rican flag. This is a patriotic symbol and gives the art a propaganda feel.
Beautiful and thought-provoking porcelain sculptures by Kate MacDowell. "These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops. They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones. In some pieces aspects of the human figure stand-in for ourselves and act out sometimes harrowing, sometimes humorous transformations which illustrate our current relationship with the natural world."
Some witty and poignant political protest art was born out of the Women's Marches across the world on January 21st. Here's a poster designed by Ernesto Yerena for The Amplifier Foundation.
