Pipilotti Rist

Pipilotti Rist was born in Grabs in the Swiss Rhine Valley in 1962. She currently lives and works in Zurich and in the mountains of Switzerland. Pipilotti is a commercial artist, illustrator and a photographer. Her favorite number is 54.

Pipilotti’s work is absolutely amazing. Her usage of color and angles forces viewers to stretch their imaginations and allows them to see beyond what is actually there. Some of her works are huge and intriguing. One of my favorites so far.

Matt Siber

Matt Siber was born in 1972 in Chicago, IL. He is a photographer with a different outlook on digital imaging. Matt grew up in Boston currently and teaches digital imaging at Columbia College in Chicago. He has a Bachelor’s degree in History and Geography and a Master’s in Photography. This information is from Matt Siber’s website, www.siberart.com

I like the way his photographs in this particular project make the signs look suspended in mid-air. His style is unique and focused and he uses most of the elements of design that we discussed in class. Matt uses a very interesting approach to his work and it is different from what I am used to, but I like it.

Michael Wsol

I was impressed with Michael Wsol’s exhibit at the University of Mary Washington. His use of digital media mixed with architecture is something that I haven’t seen up close before. While waiting for our bus to arrive on last Saturday, I was able to meet Michael. He was taking his exhibit apart. He seems to be very excited about what he is doing and he loves working digitally. Great job!

Jonathan Gitelson



Jonathan Gitelson was born in New York in 1975 and now resides in Chicago. He attended Columbia College is Chicago and teaches at several institutions in the city. He is a unique artist with an eye for capturing the little things that most people overlook. This information comes from idaprojects.org.

I admire some of his works because they are ordinary, everyday things that tell stories all by themselves. The shirt that is pictured above reminds me of an old shirt that I have had for several years and only wear around the house. It is very comfortable and I’m sure other people can relate to the story behind it. Simple things can sometimes be the most important when it comes to getting a message out. I can understand why his girlfriend hid that one.

Digital Approaches to Fine Art Assignment

A digital approach to Fine Art could have several different meanings. It depends on what is considered to be Fine Art. When I think of Fine Art, I think mostly about the basic elements such as, drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and photography. The digital approach to these elements would be more or less the final presentation of your work. It could also be the start of your work. The higher quality image could make the difference between a drawing and a masterpiece.

Both of these approaches still involve the use of photography and / or computer software. When an artist has to present his or her portfolio to a university or an employer, digital images are required most of the time. It is a very important approach because it makes your work look so much better.
