This year, Delbarton is blessed with thirteen artists in the Class of 2022 who shared their work at an AP Art Exhibit in the FAC during the month of February. To give each of these talented young men the audience he deserves, we are highlighting each artist with an excerpt from his Artist Statement, a sample of his art and a link to his digital portfolio.
Our seventh featured artist is Rory McAloon '22 (click here for Rory's complete digital portfolio)...
Rory says this about his art in his Artist Statement:
"I was never profoundly interested in art when I was growing up. I saw the pieces my brother and sister would bring home and be amazed. I thought I would never be able to produce art remotely close to theirs. Until middle school that feeling was still the same but my sophomore and junior year classes made me realize there was something there for me. So I pursued something that I wasn’t even sure was going to work out for me. After completing one multimedia assignment junior year, I found that multimedia provided me freedom and room for creativity. And now, here I am, producing art just like my brother and sister did, and yet, my pieces are still not remotely similar to theirs. In fact, they’re not similar to my classmates either."
Below is a sample of Rory's art: Technology in Music (24"x20", mixed media). We salute him and his fellow AP Art artists for their exceptional achievements in the arts at Delbarton this year!
