“The name really caught on to me once I finished this piece. So experimental. Sharp contrasting blue sky against eclipsing doom: a massive jellyfish. I worked with ink here for the strong black lines across the horizon. I wanted the image to evoke a sense that this large object was going to overcome all structures and life in its way. The buildings are made to be like melting objects, similar to a nuclear attack.” – -Anieksteph 2015
The bright pink piece is entitled “Weeping Ocean”- however I am still deciding what to entitle the darker one. The contrast of their colour compositions didn’t exactly go as planned. I wanted the blues in the untitled piece to be a bit deeper- like a midnight blue.
The most interesting and unusual aspect of this piece is that attached the frames to each other with a hinge. The two can be opened to stand on its own, or laid flat to be hung together.
“This road…this ever referenced road that leads to all sorts of places…”
That quote is the idea that I went for in “Eye of the Hill”. Here we have an unnatural, alien-like landscape with green hills and orange soil. In an abstract sense we could see that the sky is also green, or that the rolling hills go on forever. The observer is held to feel that they are at the foothills of an astonishing journey; one that leads to an all seeing eye.
..and at times you need to slouch and disappear…
One new look from the other day that captures understated sheer sleeves against grim black and white. Too much material creates a wrap look to add depth to any outfit.
