I finally finished my mixed media piece that I started last month. Talk about how different the whole thing went...I think my favorite part are all the Z's that are so subtle in the background. I called this piece "HEAVEN ON EARTH". It is about my family and so I wanted to show how important they are to me. Of course my style is so whimsical that most people wouldn't get it!
I am now working on our second assignment which is a DADAISM piece. The movement influenced styles like the avant-garde and downtown music movements, and groups including surrealism, Nouveau réalisme, pop art, Fluxus and punk rock. I am going for a fractured look. During class this week we discussed one of our next projects. It will be an assemblage piece which is FANTASTIC! Assemblage is an artistic process in which a three-dimensional artistic composition is made from putting together found objects. I have finally found out what to call myself after all these years. I am truly an ASSEMBLAGE ARTIST!! So stay tuned to see what I come up with.
