Chambers Review

Santiago Cucullu
Arcitechtonic vs. HR

The chambers exhibit had many amazing pieces to choose from, so it was very hard to decide which one to review but I chose the piece be Santiago Cucullu. I was really drawn to this piece because of how it mixes ideas and cultures to form a very unique work. This work is composed of many different individual frames that can be put together in many different ways. Each panel has the same style but each is unique. The work as a whole is composed of very vibrant colors and within them cultural images that each tells a story. The patterns and colors draw the viewer into the painting and forces them to look closer at the images within it.
