I used three medias for this piece India ink, acrylic, and watercolor. For this piece I took inspiration from a photograph that I had taken last year. I have always been drawn to black and white images; if you look at my photography as well as my sculptures you can see this. I knew from photography how a black and white image should look. I understood the concept of shading and light in these types of images. Another concept I knew from past experience was how to use India ink. One new concept that I learned was how to use salt and watercolor together in order to create a texture, you can see my use of this technique in the background. A piece of learning that I will take forward is drawing images in a 2D form. Specifically making the image seem that they are in 3D and in the correct perspective. I believe that knowing this and understanding how to do it myself will improve my sculptures. This is because I can now take more time to understand the form/object I am creating on a 2D surface and then start creating it in a 3D form.

It’s meant to be unconditional

This piece is meant to show both how we try to mend our feelings/heart but still on the inside we can never truly cleanse ourselves of our true feelings.

Birds of a Feather

This piece is meant to show that the bird has lost its distinctive property, its feathers. Without them it can no longer see clearly who it is.

Dress 2-Breadth

I wanted this design to have an organic feel, this is why I used burlap and newspaper. I also photographed outside for this reason.

The flowers on this dress are hand made origami lotus flowers. I chose to take the final photographs outside in order to get natural light and also I didn’t want the backdrop to have such a polished look, as a studio would.

Falling Apart-Breadth

On the board is an outline of a person broken into pieces, with nails on each piece. The idea of the piece is to show that the person is falling apart, piece by piece, in the midst of a very structured surrounding, which is why the background has very straight and rigid lines and shapes.
