Title of Art Piece: Apples Roast too Close to the Sun

Student/Artist’s Name: Amelia White

Artist Statement:

We were exploring surrealism in the painting medium and this was my take on it. I chose objects that I enjoy drawing or have a greater meaning to me. For example, apples will always remind me of my eating disorder. The two figures have their eyes shut and the one on the right is drooling. This ties in metaphors of depression. Overall I wanted to express the randomness, yet deeper meanings that surrealism can represent.
