Second Blog Post

For my second blog post, I would like to talk about local artist Brandon Vosika is a Seattle artist and collage artist who uses mostly recycled materials when creating his art. Brandon also uses watercolors and pen when creating his pieces. The use of uneven proportion in the faces and bodies of Brandon’s characters is so appealing to the eye. Instead of just staring at a characters face, you have to scan the entire picture plane to see where the eyes are and the nose ends up. Just as the unknown artist in “Vesperbild” contoured the body of Jesus Brandon Vosika stretches the heads of his subjects, makes arms and fingers drastically skinny to give the subject some character. Whether it gives the character a sense of creepiness or makes the subjects look more inviting it depends and varies on what is distorted.
