Organic Textures

Artist Statement:

The subject of this photograph is the inside of a lemon when cut in half. To create this photos I took a lemon, cut it in half, and arranged it in an interesting position. While editing this photo I adjusted some of the lighting and coloring of the image. I chose to create this photo because I thought the inside of some type of fruit would be an interesting texture to capture for this image. The material I used was my Canon Rebel digital camera, I then edited it using the iphoto app on my macbook. The elements of art that I used were shape and color. The principles of design that I used were pattern and balance. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was informal balance. My project evolved because I kept arranging the fruit in different positions and used different settings on my camera to get the image to look the way I wanted it to. The meaning behind this artwork is to capture the beauty in everyday objects. This project relates to my life because when I was younger I always loved eating lemons because of how sour they are. If I could change anything about this photograph I would like to have done a little more editing so that the image would be more interesting.
