Another artists I am considering is Salvador Dali. I learned about his work in elementary school, and I have some vague distant memories about seeing it referenced in movies in old art classes. I have also read articles on his perfume collection. When I went to the Cleveland Museum of Art I also saw one of his pieces. It caught my eye because the center of the painting appeared to be glowing. I thought it was the way a light was hitting the frame, but upon closer inspection I saw that it was just the paint. I thought that was amazing.
The third artist that I am considering is Henri Matisse. My high school art class looked at some his work when we worked on collages. I really liked his use of color in his paintings and collages because I think they feel comforting. I also really enjoy the fluid movement in the dance. I think his art would be really fun to emulate in my own work.
