Llewellyn Gallery (Week One)

Tuesday: Gioacchio Petronicce

What I noticed about this artist is that his theme was primarily photography. He incorporated several pictures of small, meaningful moments that occur in peoples lives such as driving on an open road, appreciating emptiness or enjoying the feel of rain.

Wednesday: Jordan Bruner

The most noticeable thing about this work is the storyline. It’s incredibly confusing at first, but as the time passed, it becomes more understandable. It’s attracting because the storyline just drags you in. You want to understand what’s happening. Another attractive aspect of this work is the colors being used. The colors are bright and vivid, however, the background is black.

Thursday: Cynthia Atkins

This video takes place in a mountain range, being edited into a dull color. The woman, Cynthia Atkins, is narrating a poem discussing family problems. The video being in such a dull color is most likely being compared to the family problems that Atkins may be going through.

Friday: Samantha Gurry

This work had a recurring theme of two items. One item being watches and the other being keys. These two being connected in this film could mean any amount of things. It could mean the need to move on or that time is precious. The possibilities are endless for the meaning of this film. Another thing I noticed is that Gurry used paper material for most of the film.


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.
