Narrative Diptych Artist Statement: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Austin Anaya (2012)
My diptych is about how being greedy can lead you to forgetting about the past. The past is what makes you, so forgetting it is like losing apart of you. Being caught up in the money can lead to this. For the first image on my diptych, I took a picture of a toy snake. The snake symbolizes how you can easily get caught up and only think about your own needs. It's mouth is open and you can assume it is hungry. The snake is known to be a greedy species so I thought it would represent my image well. For my second image, I took a picture of a group of friends. This image represents the past and what could've been.
