Briant Lee – Concentration
What is the central idea of your concentration?
The central idea of my concentration is decay the effects of time, weather, and the aging process on people and things.
How does the work in your concentration demonstrate the exploration of your idea? You may refer to specific images as examples. When referencing specific images, please indicate the image number.
As I began my concentration, I drew, using pencil and value, the effects of aging on people as in the old woman and the close up of the old man’s eyes, and hands (#1, #5, #7). I then imagined what time would do to a young man in #6 where half the image is when he is younger, and half as an older man. I then created a few pieces focusing on garbage (#8) and food (#11), and finally, I created works based on the effects of weather and oxidation of man-made objects such as the bicycle seat (#4), hose (#9), and grill (#10).
