Converging Realities #prettyproject

Maggie Bandstra's avatar Maggie Bandstra

#PRETTY Project Is a performance piece of an artist painting. The art I will be creating during art Prize is Art Inspired by Social Media posts from all over the world. The images and points of view that technology has brought to me on the small screen of my cell phone and computer screen have become the inspiration for my paintings for ArtPrize 10. Social media has given me the opportunity to connect with people who have captured the beauty of their environment in countries and cultures around the globe. My passion for visual beauty has driven me to enlarge and magnify the photographic images found on #Pretty. The photographers have permitted me to try to express their unique points of view I will also share the discussions with the people who post the inspiring images. I see the creation of my paintings as a way of connecting through the language of art that can be understood by people from all countries and cultures.
