Title of Art Piece: Aliens of Our World
Category: Sculpture – 2024
Student/Artist’s Name: Aether Moxey
School: West Anchorage HS
Grade: 9th
Artist Statement: This piece is titled “Aliens of Our World” and was inspired by the colorful, otherworldly sea creatures called nudibranchs (noo-dee-branks). Created for West High’s Fine Arts assembly, the piece is wearable and also lit from within. I tried to give the tissue paper a stained class effect by painting it with a mixture of water, acrylic, and glue once it was on the reed structure. I created a thin layer so that the light could still shine through.
Artwork Dimensions: 54 inches tall x 24 inches wide x 9 inches deep
