Title: My Childhood, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
At mere glance, this piece of art looks like some type of adoration of a video game. The Tri-force symbol is from the game The Legend of Zelda, a game that was released in 1986 and its antics have rattled my core till this very day. Zelda, or Link has probably made appearances all through out my childhood. There’s a quote that says I have learned so much from people that never existed, meaning lessons I have learned things from people who aren’t even here or have the same life. Zelda was an obsession of my brothers and its familiarity brings me comfort. This piece was sub-consciously made, in a sense. I cling on to what this game brings to me; a memory of when everything was easy and childhood was at its peak. So, this game reminds me of when my brother and I would sit and we would actually have some bonding moments, laugh and smile together. I like the use of broken glass because I have always looked at everyone as something broken; all of us are broken in some way.
