Week 11: Art Gallery – Shifting Focus

This week there were some really cool paintings in the galleries. I really liked the ones from the “Shifting Focus” exhibition. It was very abstract. The one I liked the most from this one was “The Golden Shower”. It shows a nun holding a baby on her fingertip while the baby puts a headband made of thorns and flowers on her head. To me it showed a way of praise towards religion. The baby represents the youth that is guided into the beliefs. The baby putting on the thorn band shows the praise towards the nun as she is supposed to be in the religion. Another painting I liked was of graffiti in the exhibit next door. It reminded me of the Berlin wall which is really cool.
