Keltie Ferris space looks like a complete mess, but she is still able to produce beautiful pieces of art. She uses her surroundings to influences many different aspects of her artwork. For example, Ferris talks about her view of Manhattan from her window. There are many examples of the city in her pieces of artwork. One of these examples grew to be my favorite of her pieces because I really like how it portrays the city in an abstract way.
Chuck Close is inspired by people and meaning. What really struck me about him was he wasn't just making art to please the eye, but he was making art to remember. His space allows him to mess around and learn by doing rather than brainstorming. My favorite piece is the abstract portrait of a baby because it really resembles innocence.
