Welcome, everyone!!! Today I have a mixed medium piece that has a lot of thought and meaning behind each detail. Sometimes creating these types of projects are not so much about the techniques involved, but more about what it represents.
At first glance, you may spot some significant elements, but as you look closer and learn my thought process, you will see more. This is my homage to Paris.
The Clipboard structure (Paris) holds history and many relics. The background papers are old and distressed, well used, well read, the foundation of the city. The frame (cathedral) is muddied, damaged and tarnished. The drips and drops of color are for the many tears shed.
The metal butterflies “Papillion” are intact, discolored, soiled but still a beautiful representation of hope and repair.
I love grabbing pieces to put together that have sentimental connotations. Even if my details are personal and subtle, I will know what provoked my feelings or emotions to place them in my art. I hope I’ve inspired you to try designing with thought and meaning in your next project.
