Blaine Prow has always been obsessed with geometry. He likes to draw lines but had curves. He is a senior at California State University, Long Beach and is in the School of Art’s Studio Art Program. He likes to build things and likes construction. His work took a total of 24 hours and did all of them over the weekend.
Prow’s work is made out of paper. He cuts the paper and puts them together to make shapes likes cubes or rectangular prism. In his work there are no curves because he dislikes them so he makes sure none of his works are curves, just lines.
In these pieces of work the only color Prow uses is black and white, which helps us focus on the shapes from the 2 dimensions to the 3 dimensions. His works shows that 2 dimensional shapes can become 3 dimensions shapes and that they do not always resemble their 3 dimensional counter parts.
Prow’s work is interesting and made me realize that 2 dimensional shapes can look different when out together. The colors he used helps focus on the 2 dimensional shapes and the 3 dimensional shapes. This art work had no hidden messages which helped to understate the meaning of the art and also understate Prow’s feelings for geometry. This art worked helped me remember that I use to like cutting 2 dimensional shapes, and making them into 3 dimensional shapes when I was in elementary school, but Prow’s passion for geometry goes way beyond.
