[2011/03/04 06:33] Jayjay Zifanwe: THE RHYTHM OF MOOD by Lea Supermarine & Jarapanda Snook
[2011/03/04 06:33] Jayjay Zifanwe: John Barret-Lennard, curator of the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery @ UWA, speaking on behalf of the committee said, “The Rythm of Mood was commended by the judges for its ambition, scale and sophistication. It succeeds in conveying mood and pyschological state in well resolved environments. The artist has created a complex series of spaces, and uses all the possibilities of the medium as a powerful expressive tool. The creative use of immersive enviroments in this work allows expression of ideas and emotions in ways that would be difficult to achieve in any other medium-it uses the unique qualites of the virtual space in exemplary ways, and produces a genuinely engaging result.”
Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
