This week in the galleries, the exhibit named Trepidation caught my eye. The artists that put on this exhibit are the artistic Sophia Dao, Maggie Freed, and Yee Li. Trepidation is a feeling of fear or agitation about something that may happen. The reason this piece caught my eye so much was all the shapes and angles and colors involved in the different paintings. In their artist statement, they stated that they are exploring anxiety and fear through spatial representations. The spaced that they create influence the way people choose to react to moments of trepidation. Space can be interpreted in an infinite amount of ways. Literally, mentally, emotionally, etc. Everyone reacts in a different way. There are calm moments, silent moments, chaos, and everything in between. The artists claim that their depiction of spaces resemble feelings of claustrophobia and anxiety in open and closed spaces.
