What inspired me was a quote that said: "look at how a single candle both defines and defies tha darkness." I will use the wind as negativity that will try to blow out the candle, and th candle will be my symbol for hope, goodness, life, etc.
What inspires me about the topic: spaces and places, is how is can choose a place and relate it to something deep that I have learned in my last experience. I will choose school as the place that is the wind trying to blow out my inner fire, and someone as the example of trying to keep their light alive, and somebody else's while defending them. Everyone can relate to this: it is so easy to become bitter and rebellious.
Other artists have done things with actual realistic places, cities, etc. I think that is way too overdone. My originality will come through using fire as a good thing, with wind as bad. The whole fire is evil and water is good is way too overdone. But no one has asked what wind has to take part in anything. Wind is just wind to everyone. That gust of air is the wind. No one sees any beauty in wind. As I've said, I get most of people's opinions at school, and I can feel that everyone is judging every one else. Some people go nuts and decide to end their own lives and others'. Their fire was blown out. Living with others is a constant battle to try to please them and be kind to them, even if they aren't the same with us. I decided when is the topic was presented, that I was not going to do the thing where I think about a special place and draw it. I find people complex, and I want to express the fact that humans are what make places special and their own: battlegrounds, havens, etc.
My goal is to express that living with others in different places has a price no matter where it is, or who the people are , no matter how nice they seem.
