For this year’s intaglio project we had to choose one of four prompts, and I chose the concept of hybridity, which i used to convey the disconnect that I feel between my body and my mind due to the mild form of muscular dystrophy that I was born with.
The first sketch, skeleton reference courtesy of Kineman.
The plexi-glass plate.
The regular prints.
Chine-Collé with the Muscular Dystrophy definition printed on newsprint.
Also the regular prints make a really cool gif.
AP Art prompt: Create a concentration piece that incorporates a recognizable game piece.
Sketching crumbling Jenga towers for preparation. Top two with reference, bottom three from imagination.
Pencil sketch which was then transferred onto the wooden board. At first when I had painted the background orange I was just going to keep the Jenga blocks brown until I constructed the tower for fun using my physics teacher’s set:
At this point I realize that the light blue created a nice and needed contrast with the orange.
Completed painting, of which I unfortunately did not take any progress shots as I had to work very quickly.
