The beauty of art is that it takes many shapes and forms. It is as unique as the person who creates it. Art can also be interpreted many different ways. What is beauty to one is meaningless to another. What is genius to me may be garbage to you. What is offensive to some is comical to others.
I am immensely proud of Deven's work. When I look at it, I see his sense humor, his intelligence and his love of creating things.
Tonight we went to see Deven's art in his school art show. He is taking sculpting class. Because he came late in the school year, he only has two pieces to show. What he has done his teacher is very impressed with. He did a Michelangelo-style nude that blew up in the kiln, but I am told it was excellent. "Mr. Man", the art teacher, believes Deven has a promising art career ahead of him.
Here are a few pieces displayed by other students.
Can you believe these were done in pencil?
I like the flowy swirly ones :)
Here is one of Deven's sculptures
The artist and his work
And Deven's piece de resistance, the one that the newspaper came to photograph, the piece that the teacher was so pleased with he gave it its own table:
That is indeed a birdy finger.
It is entitled "Honestly"
The paper says:
"Would you like to hear a joke?"
