From the Art Department :
The assignment was to study a well known artist and interpret/replicate their style for this modern time. Below is Lili’s take on Picasso’s line drawing.
“For the artist interpretation, I was inspired by Picasso’s one line drawings.
For the subject matter, I am angered and simultaneously deeply moved by events in our recent national news. As someone with immense privilege, I am trying to channel my frustration into active change. The drawings titled “soft crowd, solidarity” and “angry crowd, solidarity” are both representations of photographs I took last Saturday at a protest.
I think the concept of one line drawings resonates with this topic as well as it shows fluidity and a unity that I think is critical for social change. For these pieces, I used a brush tip paint pen and took photos through a phone app that made them appear digitized.” ~ Lili ’21
