Fosdick-Nelson Gallery

During this exhibit, only two works really caught my attention. One was a work created by Derek Larson entitled, “Summer of Hate.” This work caught my attention because it seemed like a contradiction to me. The work is entitled “Summer of Hate,” yet the work is mainly happy faces. I’m not sure if the artist was using irony or not, but, the strange contradiction is what really drew my eye because I kept looking and asking, “If this is a summer of hate, why are the faces happy instead of gloomy.” The second work that caught my eye was created by Ron Lambert entitled, “Hiding Trees for the Forest.” The piece shows an exquisite picture of nature, mainly hills and trees. Over the picture is a camouflage layover. This caught my eye because I understood it more than any other work in the gallery. The work matches the title perfectly because the camouflage over the picture of the nature scene represents hiding and saving the trees. It just made sense.


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
