Final: Formalism

Description

Here's another one....

This work was my final for my Meaning & Making in the Visual Arts class. Throughout the semester we learned about various theories relating to art such as Realism, Formalism, Expressionism, Deconstruction, Feminism, and Post-Modernism. We created artworks that revolved around some of these theories and had a body of work to select from for our final. Out of the 5 works, I had two strong ones that were considered and the Formalist piece was selected as the final (I'll post the other one soon). Originally it was more traditional Op Art, employing hard geometric shapes and forms with repetition. This underwent about a dozen ideas until I arrived at this solution. It took all of last week more or less and the help of my girlfriend to clean this f*cker up, and I'm...satisfied with it. Not really proud of it- I see areas where I could adjust it- but I'm glad it's over and done with.

Techs: Acrylic on canvas, 22" x 28"
