These works have been difficult to complete, started 2 back in July 2016 and after a lot of pondering and struggling with compositions they are finished. A nod to the past, these works ended up being the result of a transitional period in my life. Quietly consenting to the will of the universe.
All lined up, extra boarder space than usual for these 4.
In the Constellation of Carina is my entry for this years award, I really like the freedom of this piece, I just let the images play out, and when I didn’t like something I turn it around. It seems to have worked well, I’m trying out a more obvious approach to my references, the cut-off lines to where a picture would end I have kept, which gives it most a plastered/ stuck on look. Theres something about that hot pink which is coming into all of the images, and I can’t help remember when I first used it two years back and it instantly gave a gamer-girl vibe to the whole thing – something which could get out of control. >_<. The shin-digs going down in Feb, so we’ll see how things go; also this will be the first time I’ve entered a work and framed it, its got glass, I’m more then apprehensive of the shine/glare.
