Wk2 – Artist Interview – Maccabee Shelley


He was inspired to the art world by being an environment and geology major, which he saw art through.
He does not like to work with a conscious mind because he does not want to overthink is work.
His favorite color is pink but it is very hard for him to find pink glass.
He has been at CSULB for about 6 weeks and has been working here.
The reason his glass pieces are set upon something that is not glass to make it more obvious of its glass content.

I think that is is nice he gets to work on something he enjoys and get paid as well. I also like the idea that he does not “overthink” his work and goes along with what comes along. And it is also interesting that I never thought about pink colored glass before. I also find it clever to place his artwork on top of something that is not the same material so it can stand out more. That is something that i would have not thought of and it is interesting that he sees art in things I do not. He gave me a new perspective on what you call “art”.
