Architecture has been a common theme in art throughout the ages. Tashonda Wright has put a new spin on it with her current piece in the Pease Gallery “Time”. With this ink drawing, Tashonda explores the relationship between architecture and humanity. Architecture influences people and people inadvertently influence architecture. “Time” was created during a trip Tashonda took to China with a study abroad program at the China Academy of Art. Each architectural feature seen in the drawing has a special significance to the artist. Tashonda also took advantage of the opportunity to learn Chinese calligraphy and painting techniques while in the program. These elements are used throughout the composition.This is a piece that has many fascinating details embedded in it, and requires much more than a casual glance. Come see it in person and be sure to ask us what the Chinese inscription means!
