Project Proposal

Sept. 10, 2010

For my project, I plan on using four canvases that are 18″ x 18″ and put them all side by side in a line. I also plan on using acrylic paints. The far left canvas will start out photo realistic and as you look at the four canvases, from left to right, the painting will become more and more surreal. Although, I’m not one hundred percent sure of what my subject matter is, I’m thinking about starting the far left canvas with a bookcase against a wall next to a window, in the corner of a room. On the bookcase will be a few piles of books, and some objects. I was thinking about having a jar of sand somewhere on a shelf that someone got on a trip somewhere and having it spill over the edge. On the next canvas, the sand will still be pouring out but it will have covered a good portion of the floor be spilling out the window. Some books will be moving with the sand, as though they were knocked off the shelf. In the center right canvas, the view will switch to outside the window with sand pouring out and covering the landscape. In the background will be sort of an urban, or rural, cityscape. There will be a storybook, or even a history book, in the foreground, in the sand, that is open to a page, with things coming out and continuing onto the last canvas. The things will be tearing apart modern society, like nights destroying buildings as if they were popping balloons. In the first week, I plan on sketching and hopefully finalizing my idea, and then every week, or week and a half, I can finish a painting. I already have all of the materials I need.

Materials:

4 Canvases (18″x18″)

Acrylics

Brushes

Idea Sketches

Anthony Arcaro

Born, 1994, La Jolla, California

Lives in Escondido, California

Anthony Arcaro first became interested in art at a young age, and enjoyed taking photographs to document family trips and vacations. As his passion for photography grew, his pictures started to focus more on trees, plants, animals and subjects of nature. In his spare time he would photograph things he could find like leaves, occasional caterpillars, and abstract rocks. When he was stuck in a car for long periods,like on his way home from a trip, and it was during night, he would photograph the passing lights as they would transform into abstract lines. The light would, in effect, paint it’s own abstract self portrait, sometimes influenced by a bump in the road or a turn down another street. As Anthony developed to become an avid photographer he started to train his eye to see the world as if looking at it from the outside, like a painting. He was strongly influenced by the many different cultures and places he had encountered from his travels but also enjoyed reading suspenseful fiction and learning about society’s past. As an ambitious artist, he then started to familiarize himself with different art forms that weren’t as two dimensional as a photograph. He then dabbled in clay creations but soon moved on to warm glass work, or glass fusing. He would focus more on the abstract and create multicolored circles of different sizes. The circles could be seen as different planets of the solar system or as a close-up of the texture of an object such as a plant. In  2008, Anthony Arcaro became a student at High Tech High North County, and had continued to broaden his understanding in different mediums. As a freshman in art class, he was exposed to new mediums like linoleum block printing, but was also able to work with familiar mediums such as pencil, pastel, charcoal, acrylic, and watercolor.
