"A View Into the Outside World" Miah Nielsen, Acrylic on Paper, 2017. “The well-defined world we inherit doesn’t quite fit each one of us, individually” (69). "The piece I created centered around defying the social construct of assimilation. Through lots of initial pieces in experimentation with color, decalcomania, and texture, I reached a final piece incorporating all of my ideas. In the focus on my pressed arm and hand, the colors are strictly in the oranges and reds, whereas the background recedes with different variations of blue. Likewise, the hand prints in the background belong to a plethora of different people to represent society. Art & Fear by Ted Orland and David Bayles includes ideas in chapter 6 that an artist faces fear and depression when comparing their art to their competition, but yet it creates a sense of raw energy. My interpretation of "raw energy" would be through the bright reds and oranges. Likewise, the competition can be seen as others work, or society's idea of what art should be. Altogether, I feel as if my piece accurately portrays both my interpretation of the chapter and social commentary of societal constructs." Miah Nielsen
