I’d like to begin with an apology, even though none of you deserve it. It has been crunch time and the stress of the ending semester has caused me to be a bit crazy. I missed last week and i figure I might as well show you what i have been working on. No, I won’t cut and past my 8 page research paper with 3 pages of works cited. I’ll spare you that. However, I will show you how I am doing with my three art classes. Here we go!
This is my five composition morph for my 2D Design class. The assignment is to create a visual narrative. My concept is the corruption of religion. I chose Jesus to represent religion because I have the most experience with Christianity and he is a universal representation. Money is revealed more and more throughout each composition. My personal feelings about religion are negative and repulsed at best. I don’t have any issues with most of the teachings. I simply despise what religion has become all about.
I’m going to have to apologize for the shoddy camera work. I already handed this project in for my Color Theory and Painting class. These were quick snapshots I took to show the ever lovely Noel Rogers before I handed them in. The assignment was to, over the semester, smear left over paint from the projects were have been assigned and collect them. We then had to select parts of these smear pages that create beautiful compositions. The final parts of the project was to paint a square of an anomaly color (a color that doesn’t belong), make it have a shadow beneath it to create the illusion of depth, and mat the final compositions. I really love the accidental beauty of the paint smears. This project has been one of my favorites.
These are incomplete and most likely not the final products. These are for my Drawing 1 class and the assignment is to create a series based on a topic you pick. My topic is mold. I really hate mold. It is just so fucking disgusting. It can be quite beautiful, though. The topic just came to me out of nowhere and I like that it allows me to explore the “accidental” art method. I created the first two by smearing white gesso on bristol board. I then dragged acrylic paint across in one direction. From there, I just played with the effects water and ink have on each other. The ones below those are simply drawing paper with water and ink. I wish I could spend more time on this project.
So there it is. I have been one busy chick. I know my absence made you all piss your pants a bit, but no worries. I’ve come back from the dead (not quite) and I have diapers for all.
