Arting for 365 Day 226: Part of the Art Experience is Interpretation

12/10/12

30 x 12″ acrylic and ink on canvas

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

For most of my blog posts, I attempt to describe my artwork in stories or poetry to provide insight. But sometimes I think too much explanation leaves little for the viewer to ponder. Being a viewer myself, I realize it’s nice to ponder.

So for day 226’s work I’m going to let you interpret the work as you like, with no insight from me. Instead I’ll simply talk about my technique in creating the piece.

First off, it was extremely satisfying to work on something of a slightly larger scale. While the 3 x 5″ pieces are well and good, it was nice to spread out and work. Thinking about the piece, I knew that I wanted to merge my approaches – combining realism and abstraction, ink and paint. I also wanted to explore geometric spaces paired with washes of color.

I’ve got to say, this is my new favorite piece. Not only am I happy with the concept behind the work, the flowing lines, strange juxtaposition of bright pink with earth tones make for a visually stimulating piece as well.

  1. I agree that this is a very successful piece of art! I love the combination of calmness in the composition and colours, and the flowing movement in the trailing vine shapes … =D

  2. Thank you so much, Elena! I’m attempting to combine a few of the approaches I typically use. I need to push it a bit more, but it’s been good practice for me.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
