Enchanted Response

Fountain of Youth by Jenny Schmid was my favorite piece in the Enchanted Exhibition. I love her depiction of people. There is a certain cartoony cutout type of thing going on that is hard not to enjoy. This piece reminds me about of her video that we watched earlier in the semester. I have also seen some of her prints hanging out around the print studio. Something about the people in her art is just so easy to identify with. It brings you back to when you were a kid and you played with boats and balloons, creating crazy stories in magical fairylands. I also enjoy the cartoon characters mixed into this real life setting. Fountain of Youth is just such a happy piece.
