Autumn Gorman is a clever senior artist here at BPHS in Mr. Wallisch’s Art 2 class. She took this art class because art has always been Gorman’s favorite subject in school; in fact, it’s been her passion. She wanted to continue to create and showcase her art in school, where it will be displayed at the Art Show in 2019. Gorman wants to advance her art career at either the Savannah College of Art and Design or┬áCalifornia Polytechnic State University for architecture/media management.

The artwork Gorman is expressing today is of Foster the People’s album cover, “Supermodel.” She created this because it is one of her favorite albums and she wanted to make a tribute to the cover she loves. Gorman’s materials she used were not like any other… The canvas she used was her own bedroom door. How creative! She then used acrylic paints for three weeks to finish the masterpiece.

If she could name this painting, she would call it “Hollywood Flashes.” “Hollywood Flashes” portrays the image of celebrities being treated as objects that other people can use to make money. Her favorite part of the piece was being able to bring a pop culture idea and turn it into something she could use on an everyday basis.

If Gorman could say anything to an aspiring artist, she would say, “Don’t get discouraged if an idea or a project you have doesn’t work out because everything takes time, and one day you will look back and be proud of the progress you made.”
