Week 7- MOCA Artist
Artist: D. Weathersby Collection: Only Dreaming Piece: Vacation The artist I chose is D. Weathersby. D. Weathersby creates his/her “digital photo collages” by using Microsoft Picture It- 10 software. The piece I chose out of the Only Dreaming collection is Vacation.
Weathersby's collage seems very scattered and aged. The picture of the little girl looks like it was taken a long time ago, before there were colored pictures. I’m getting from the background maybe this is where he/she grew up as a child and his/her favorite place was the beach. Weathersby's intent was probably to make viewers wonder and find a connection. It’s not very clear to me why Weathersby chose these items for his collage but it stood out to me.
