House by Rachel Whiteread
I chose the picture titled House, by Rachel Whiteread. This is a picture of Rachel's sculpture. It was completed on October 23, 1993, and destroyed in January 1994. House, one of her best known works, is a concrete cast of the inside of an entire Victorian terraced house. Whiteread uses the element of texture in her sculpture as well as form to create the 3-dimensional image. This image stood out to me because in the book it is under the subject of "Modern Art in Your Life", and it really brought to my attention how buildings are such works of art. The shapes of buildings are so distinct and the amount of texture used to create them is just fascinating.
