Welcome To Marc Flores' 8th Grade Website
Our abstract art may not be as attractive as others, but we tried to add as much meaning to it as possible. The first thing you notice is five shapes with different colors, with the center shape being more pronounced and red. These are people. Red represents fire and blood, but it also represents power. If you know this, then you know that the wider aura and deeper red signifies a person with more power than the others. The other shapes are all different colors and we tried to make them amorphous shapes, because who’s to say that a person is one thing. We are all a bundle of emotions and thoughts and systems. So we went for an amorphous shape because it is not limited and can be labeled as many things. Another element to the picture is the black background. Black means emptiness, the unknown, and negativity. It represents strength, seriousness, and power. However, red is a more emotionally intense color and we believe that is would relate to humans more than black. The four “people” are linked to the person with power because they need a person with power to lead them in a world of unknown and danger. A person with power leads the others and creates order. When you have order, you create a government. In the case of our ladder, King George III is the person with power and he leads his people. This picture could also be seen as the people trying to take away power from the person with the most of it, because power is everything.
