About the Artist
Yeri loves storytelling. She like to write and wishes to write one day. It’s one of her dreams and she loves it when people can relate to her own stories. She even said, “We are all writing a story of our own.” She doesn’t like that you are limited to conceptual art unless you have experience. She said, “Art should be for everyone.”
The “Color wheel” represents progression of time. She said she chose this because the world changes and so should her art. She also said it had a big deal with because she changed herself. Lastly, she said the broken glass in the last piece shows your reflection and can represent a lot of things, one being own insecurities. She claims we murder ourselves with our insecurities and it’s okay to accept them.
Some of her hobbies include: writing stories, play video games. She always knew she wanted to be an artist but didn’t know what kind of art she wanted to get into. For a while she did animation art for a while. She claims we are always looking for a destination, that might be a dream school or a dream job. She asked me do you ever reach that destination?
There are so many destinations but we never reach the exact one we are looking for. It is in a different form.
Synthesis / My Experience
I personally loved how the exhibit was interactive. She was a very sweet girl and had her own opinion. I that that was wonderful.
