Title of Art Piece: Ansel’s Evil Tree
Student/Artist’s Name: Aileen Page
School: Chugiak High School
Artist Statement: I had taken Ansel Adams’ original picture of a photographed tree and painted it with the expression of evil. I accomplished my vision of this by changing the natural colors of the tree and surrounding background by making the colors unnatural looking and with the colors I thought would make it look evil. I made the piece still look realistic, to be as if you could find it in nature. The red sky and the orange tree contrast each other with the green mountains to give this over all feeling of evil.
