Selected to be displayed at the 105th Annual Student Art Show
As an advertising major and art minor, I often turned to art as an outlet from the stress of school for the past four years. This past year, I became interested in 3D art, specifically sculpting, and have learned so much about the process. After learning the basics, I wanted to create something that touched on a topic I am passionate about - wildlife conservation.
This piece is inspired by the beauty of nature in Colorado. Today the world has become so overpowered by mankind and urbanization that we often see many species become endangered and even extinct. Even though numerous wildlife protection organizations exist, nature still struggles to put up a fight against humans. Through my sculpture I attempted to portray humanity’s efforts to restore and maintain Earth’s natural beauty.
The sculpture is made of polymer and balsa wood.
