It’s common for students who are constantly on the go to get lost in assignments and activities and miss some of nature’s beauty around them. Jessica Korch, artist of the Life.Color.Abstraction. Photo Exhibit offers portraits of familiar places in an artistic colorful and abstract light.
Life.Color.Abstraction. is a showcase of select pictures with, “an idea of heightened reality which depicts the world as a more colorful vibrant place,” says Korch.
Korch is a senior with a major in advertising and integrated arts and a minor in art history, who aspires to be an art director for an ad agency. Although Korch has worked on her exhibit for over a year, she is most interested in the viewers’ perception of her work. “I want viewers to think about how nature can ultimately be taken in a colorful artistic life,” said Korch. “I want people to see the life, creative composition and perspective on things to get a glimpse into what I see.”
Christine Wilkerson, a junior majoring in interdisciplinary digital studio said she likes the natural feel of Korch’s photos. “I like the color graining because it looks natural like she didn’t do anything to the picture,” said Wilkerson. “The fact that you can tell is very aesthetic.”
Mitchell Culler a senior majoring in English and food science said he admires Korch’s altered view of one particular traditional photo. “This photo is very reminiscent of autumn with a twist of traditional autumn imagery, because its not portrayed the way you usually picture autumn.”
The Life.Color.Abstraction. Photo Exhibit will take place from Monday Oct. 21 to Friday, Nov. 1 in 125 Borland.
