Aqil’s work shows a woman who is smiling, her smile is what stands out in the sculpture, nothing else is easily determined. This piece is very easy on the eyes, given its abstract features, it does not make you cringe. I relate this to how in the real world people are much more pleasant when they smile, an angry person is not an approachable person. The piece is meant to directly resemble Picasso’s Seated Woman 1930, however as a sculpture. Aqil’s version is brighter and more abstract.
5 The Story it Tells
This piece simply depicts a woman sitting in a chair, however given abnormal features, the only thing clear is the woman’s face and the fact that she is smiling. The first thing you see in a person is their facial expression reveling how they feel at the moment. This being said, Aqil’s piece tells us we should smile more and relax from negativity in our lives. I believe this because her smile is the only thing that was easily identifiable and stood out to me. The bright colors used compliment the overall mood of the sculpture and could relate to how our surroundings have an influence on our moods.
