Title of Art Piece: Bas5 Drop
Student/Artist’s Name: Molly Putman
School: North Pole High School
Artist Statement: This painting was inspired by a relatively new branch of techno music known as “dubstep”. Some people love it, most people despise it, but it always leaves an impression. It’s usually characterized by incredibly heavy bass synths and drums, wild electronic screeches, and other sounds for which there are no words in the English language. My goal was to visually interpret the music in an interesting and original way. Given what I knew about the genre, it seemed to me the most apt way to represent the music was through a massive, wild, and beautiful explosion coming out of the listener’s eyes.
