  2. Jia Lee IB# 000518-314 Candidate Statement As a student in IB Art and as an artist I have strived to achieve a form of art where I can fully express my ideas concerning myself as well as the world around us. More than anything I wish to create works projecting my emotions, ideas, and views, starting with distorting the real world and relating it to myself. During the course of my growth I have found that I have a natural ability to extend and relate elements in my works to create a visual story, thus building a stronger concept. I have also found that I have become comfortable working with color and composition wore than anything as I continued to work on my pieces constantly. Some problems I have encountered mainly concern the IWB. Often when I research cultural history or current events, I find that I have a difficulty creating art that I actually care about, thus sometimes I drop the project as a whole or proceed to create works I am never that in to. My work tends to be more about me, my personal experience and the cultural significance within those encounters. In overcoming these experiences I have attempted to generate a concept I am interested in first, think of what imagery I want, then research into that culture or concept later on. Artists that have heavily influenced me include Frida Kahlo, Philip Guston, Eduard Munch, and NicolettaCeccoli. They are artists that have moved the world with their personal stories, their raw emotions portrayed in their works. Elements that Kahlo uses inspire me, and the very unique work of Ceccoli intrigue and fascinate me always. I always attempt to experiment with new media, and have gained experience from charcoal to painting to ceramics, and have attained a level of personal technique.
