Erin Riley Originally Alone


Erin Riley Dodge Neon


Every-Any-No Man


The Images found at the Fosdick –Nelson gallery were very enjoyable to stare at. The Displays there are very elegant, and have many similar materials used for them. Many of them were similar in look and style. These were very well done pieces that seem to relay much small detail.

The First artwork that caught my eye was “Every-Any-No Man” by Mark Newport created in 2005. This image looked as if there is a large meaning behind it. It is consisted of many different fabrics that are from multiple different clothing’s on it, like sweaters, and large socks. All the stuff looked very well sewn together. It looks like there are many types of cloth, and multiple people could have worn it, and now are put together.

Originally Alone by Eric Riley was a work that had a scene that was inside of it. It held a lot of a piece and that it was very well at depicting its scene of a car crash. The piece of it is given atmospheric perspective, value, and a sense of depth. Atmospheric perspective comes from the background of the scene and how the horizontal landscape becomes darker with every new layer of different colored cloth. The image has a lot hairy lines, and has a very dynamic composition to it.

The fourth image is also by Eric Riley and it is called “Dodge Neon” created in 2011. Unlike his other one this one doesn’t have atmospheric perspective. In this it has value on the ground of it showing. Most of the Color is made up of mainly black and white with many changes in the value. Seems like there was pattern with lines on the ground, ad the lines on the car. There also seems to be closure within the piece. The image has a lot of details and a very still frame, as it was the ending of a said crash.

The images seem to be complex with many details and textures and types of values. The image was well done and looked to be taken long. all of these images had a peculiar atmosphere with it.
