Chris Held's Profile
I have lived in Leicester, NY since I was four years old. Growing up in the same area usually results in being conditioned to your surroundings. While attending S.U.N.Y. Geneseo for my Art Studio degree, I came to the realization that I have taken the beauty of the land surrounding me for granted. I started creating art pieces that I found let me look at the subject in a different manner. When I create a piece or when I am in the mindset to create another, I look at everything differently. There really are times that I stop to look at a spot I have been by hundreds of times and it is almost like I have never been there before. It is pretty neat to look at your surroundings as if it is the first time you have been there. The next time you go somewhere, look around you and think about the last time you went somewhere new.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath, open your eyes and imagine that you are five…
