My biggest influence and inspiration is the matter in which our bodies are made out of. All the atoms that connect to create our bodies. I want to explore more into this subject using styles of forms such as lines, color, and texture to create abstract, elegant, and detailed blue prints of the human body.
These are my studies for my Intro To Time Based Media class.
Some studies I’m working on for my project in class. The top one is pap marbling on illustration paper. The figures are done with illustration pen.
The 2 bottom studies are just figures drawn with graphite.
Circle vs Square, Square vs Circle, Triangle Wins
Its very simple but I had to make it for class.
This was based on a quote but Lawrence Krauss that we are all stardust. The work is done with mixed media (gouache, ink, and assorted pens)
To be honest, the title has LITTLE to do with what I’m about to say. I’m just stoked to celebrate and it doesn’t matter how old I get, I think Birthday’s will always be the one thing that everyone should celebrate!
Anyways, I’m still in the makings of my artist statement but with a little chat with my instructor, I think I’m on a role with this one:
Often times, as human beings, we differ from majority of living things due to our need to explore, to touch, to feel, to create and manipulate, and to have emotions that effect our judgement such as sadness, confused, joy and anger. Throughout our explorations we discover and understand our surroundings through sciences; one science in particular that I have taken an interest is physics, particular in astronomy and cosmology. The science of astronomy and cosmology is the study of the universe and the study of the origin, evolution and fate of the universe at large. Origin is the core of my research and inspiration for my work.
Based on a quote alone from theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Lawrence Krauss (“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded…”), my work is an interpretation of the creation of our existence. When a star explodes (also called a supernova), it explodes within a period of a months worth of time creating materials such as hydrogen, nitrogen and iron which is what us as matter consists of.
Gouache, collage, and ink will be used to create romanticized star “blue print” of the creation of our bodies expressed through an installation. Forms used will be clean lines, mixed colors and textures of other surfaces and materials to show human constellations that are elegant and organized as maps of our body’s beginning stages of life.
