Art 3 (2017)
30 works in 30 media
Mixed media portrait of Audrey Hepburn. This artwork was very different from anything I have done. It forced me to try new textures and media that I might not have used. The inspiration I had was from a pop art painting of Audrey Hepburn by Andy Warhol. I have always wanted to incorporate her into my work. I started off wanting to use multiple pieces of artwork. Then I decided that if I were to use multiple I would not be able to put in more effort. I drew a grid on my photo and on the canvas '5x6'. Next, I sketched out Audrey. I decided that I wanted the background to be different shades and variations of red. During this project I feel the hardest thing for me was that I kept changing my mind. The outcome was not what I had planned. I do enjoy the way it turned out. My intention behind my work was to make something to go with the vibes of my room. I wanted the 30 mini works to all flow together and complement each other.
Hyper-realistic apples. I created a variety of red apples. I did not use photos for inspiration on all of the apples.I worked with Prismacolor colored pencils, gel pens, and white paint. I also worked with Prismacolor markers and normal pencils. My meaning behind my work was to show my ability of hyper-realistic apples without using many photos. I wanted the images to come from my photographic memory of apples. People should be interested in the detail and colors within each apple.
Evidence of Mastery
Evidence of Mastery project. I created a mountain and woodland landscape. I worked with oak wood and acrylic paint. This image tells a story of a mountain and woodland lake. People should be interested in the depth I showed in my work. Overall I faced some complications in the work but it is most definitely my favorite work that I have done.
For this project, I used an idea I had gotten from the synectic works we had just finished. I found a photo of myself and edited it in a way that I could manipulate the shapes of my face to paint in a pop art portrait style. I had inspiration from pop art. Many of my works are centered around red and pop art styles. I enjoy having my works all somehow go along with each other. I chose to use acrylic paint. Acrylic paint made it much easier to fix mistakes or things I found not wanted or needed in my work. I removed my nose and mouth to help the work look more like me. When I had the lips and nose on it did not resemble me. I am trying to communicate how some features on the face are very recognizable compared to others. People have features that make them who they are. Deleting some features helps others to recognize who they are.
Weight vs. void
Time based project. I used foam board and roses to form an arrangement. Over time I watched the roses die and wilt.
