Week 4 - MOCA

Artist: Dominic Rouse
Collection: Photo Composition
Piece: Angeline

The artist I chose is Dominic Rouse. He uses photo composition in his artwork. Rouse’s work is usually colorless and dark, yet very realistic and powerful to the eye.

Angeline gives me the illusion of a little girl who can’t find her way. She appears to be headed down hill (in life). To me the white dress symbolizes the purity and innocence of this little girl. The snake, eagle, darkness and dirtiness of the place seem like the “dark side” (of life).
