Study of Hyacinth
This is much smaller than the regular version. It was a graphic design I tried to implement into my portfolio for 2D Design. Being that I can use various media, mixed, paint, graphic design, photography, &c; I decided to try out the graphic design portion, since I have already done a lot with photography. And will continue to by the way, but yea.
I wasn't sure of what I was trying to accomplish by doing this, it was more of a sporadic lets have some fun with a flower type of thing.
My concentration this year is machine vs. nature which is odd for me. Doing something so abstract and surreal can be hilarious and fun. I hope to explore it a lot. I am doing a concentration at school right now with the aurora borealis with the reflection in a lake below. But the reflection is of a city, a skyline, with industry and what will eventually become of that naturally inherent beauty that the landscape posesses. I also contrasted the texture for it. I used the texturous rather 3d palette knife for the nature and a thin meticulous brush work for the city. It is quite contrasting, and I am pleased with it.
I am also working on a piece that is a fractal interpretation of a shoreline. It is wild. I am either going to do it tremendously small or tremendously big. I haven't decided yet. It would look fabulous big but I'd rather save those for when I do something so amazing that comes from my own thought. The aurora thing would work well large. I am thinking of doing a self portrait on one of the huge pieces (2' x 3' and 2' x 2'). They are big. I would need a lot of pant so you can see I want to be sure. I don't need to cost more money. I spend most of my money on my art supplies. I am such a junkie. I am addicted to it I love the smell of paint and art supplies and the feel. To be immersed in art is so orgasmic sounding to me, its crazy.
Another piece I am working on- or well need input on is an interpretation of one of my nudes for massart, this one
Except that instead of the bottom portion being natural, I am going to turn it into a robot type of thing with machinery and wires and metal. It will be interesting. It is working out fine so far, I need to spend a fe more drafts on it though before it gets right completely. I may have to buy another pad of 18 x 24 paper. Guh. I should go after school tomorrow to the art store and get one.
Some of my art is being entered into the Scholastics Competition for my state:
and a serigraph I can't find the picture of.
If I win anything I will be very happy. If i get the gold key my art will go to NYC. That would be exciting, but I would want my art back desperately, I love it so.
I am also the owner of the journal calimari. I decided that I needed a journal for myself and my art. Whether anyone reads it I don't really care. It's just a nice thing to keep I think.
So I will be describing my art and art excursions and posting pieces and updates with them.
I will post the pieces I do have up sometime.
