About the Artist
Blaine Scot Prow is an undergraduate Studio Arts student at CSULB. He is in his senior year. He is majoring in studio art, focusing on graphic design. He is working on a portfolio for graphic design to show to companies after graduation. Blaine has always liked geometry and he liked to build things. His favorite shape is the triangle.
The pieces in Extrusions are all geometric shapes. The shapes are made of paper and are three dimensional. The paper geometric shapes protrude from the board it sits on. The light in the exhibit casts shadows on the board from the shapes and shadows on the faces of the geometric shapes. The board is white with some black around and under the shapes. The geometric shapes are white.
I chose to write on Extrusions because the simplicity of the exhibition caught my eye. In essence, the exhibition is shapes protruding from a white board. However, what interested me was how these shapes were arranged, how the black colors were placed, and how the shadows the shapes cast adds to the exhibition.
