People Who Like Art Are Better Than People Who Don’t
I was reading an article on Media Bistro about a study from the University of Illinois at Chicago stating that “people who like art are better than people who don’t“! So here is a series by Megan Charland, a new artist I just discovered earlier this week. The series “Chronic Disconnect” is the one that grabbed my attention the most. Partly because it makes a strong visual statement and also because I could not feel more different from her. Here is her statement:
“By physically cutting away houses from the landscape I create a void in composition representing my transient lifestyle. Each time I move it is as if my previous residence is being erased by my subconscious.
My inability to emotionally connect to any of my residences is in constant flux with my need to be in complete control of my life. This control is something I harness in working with these hand-cut prints. With a sharp blade, this act of erasure is permanent, I am moving forward.”
