AP Art Spotlight: Joseph Udina '21

This year, Delbarton is blessed with seventeen artists in the Class of 2021. To give each of these talented young men the audience he deserves, we are highlighting each artist with a quotation from his artist's statement, a sample of his art and a link to his digital portfolio.

Our sixteenth featured artist is Joseph Udina '21 who says this about his art: "During this, my final year, I chose as my sustained investigation to focus on capturing the stylistic beauties of fishing lures, all stemming from my passion for fishing of any kind. In the course of my visual studies, I responded to a multitude of lures that featured varied geometric patterns, vivid colors and creative and dynamic shapes, both within and without.
The works of Surrealist artist, Joan Miro, was a catalyst to the direction I wanted to take. Miro’s art is all about interpretation, and I hope that my works reflect that statement. Miro once said: “I try to apply colors like words that shape poems.” In many ways, I feel as though I’m trying to do the same. I invite you to reflect upon that as you view my own particular interpretations."

Below a sample of Joseph's art: "Refraction" - Oil pastel on paper - 24" x 16"...
