Artist: Sage Garver
Gallery: CSULB School of Art, Dennis W. Dutzi Gallery
Sage Garver is from Hermosa Beach and is currently attending CSULB. This is Sage last semester here at CSulb where she us graduating with a BFA, where she mainly focused on sculpture. Sage plans on traveling to Hawaii and work more on sculpting. She also wanted to work on her MFA while she was out there. Sage was always artistic and it started with drawings.In the begining of her college life the are department required some sculture classes. Sage began to like sculpting over drawing since you can physically hold your creations.
Sage’s exhibit BIO was inspired by biology. This exhibit took about one month to complete. Sage used foam ball that suck to the wall to create cells she had once see under a microscope and other biological Diagram. There was different shapes ans sizes of the call on the walk which looked really nice. In the center of it all was a shining multicolored orb which sage said can represent a person whereas the gold chains can be exterior part of your body.
I liked this exhibit a lot because I seen something different when I first walked in. When I first walked I thought it was something dealing with the ocean. But then realizing that it was representing a cell I started to see what she was expressing. Art isn’t always so obvious to the viewers but that a good thing it gets people thinking and creates conversation among each other. There isn’t always one way to see something in art.
