The students in the AP Studio Art class of Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design took the definitions of Love and Hate and interpreted them at a recent mini art show. Using a pair of 6” square wooden panels, each student made two designs using different materials and techniques including collage, drawing and painting.
The young artists each had a unique approach to the concepts of Love and Hate. Sharlyn Galarza depicted hate by carving a jagged hole into the wood. The hole is painted blood red and the background is black. Her love piece is a collage of a globe sitting in a grey and black landscape. The globe shines with exuberant colors. Ewelina Parzych painted a pair of detailed eyes; her hate piece shows the eye closed, while her depiction of love has the eye directly and softly looking at the observer. All the individual pairs of Love and Hate came together to create a communal piece that seemed to float off the brick wall in rows and ranks at the coffee shop. Together the collection of student interpretations created a vibrant art piece, expressing how each person has a different elucidation of these strong emotions.
