Still Here

Here's a strange red pastel painting for y'all. I've been experimenting with making my backgrounds more interesting, and getting better at it :) Also, having A2 paper again helps.

I am not my background
A2, pastels (hard)

God idé at arbejde med baggrunden

Ja, baggrunden er god. Men jeg kan også godt lide ansigtet. Det er fyldigt. Baggrunden kunne godt være hoveder for neden og nogle søjlebuer eller bygninger for oven.

jeg prøvede at lave noget der kunne tolkes på flere forskellige måder, og samtidig er visuelt interessant. Det er ikke nemt, men spændende at arbejde med.

“One ought to be able to hold in one's head simultaneously the two facts that Dali is a good draughtsman and a disgusting human being. The one does not invalidate or, in a sense, affect the other. The first thing that we demand of a wall is that it shall stand up. If it stands up, it is a good wall, and the question of what purpose it serves is separable from that. And yet even the best wall in the world deserves to be pulled down if it surrounds a concentration camp. In the same way it should be possible to say, ‘This is a good book or a good picture, and it ought to be burned by the public hangman.’ Unless one can say that, at least in imagination, one is shirking the implications of the fact that an artist is also a citizen and a human being.”
-George Orwell
Eftersom dette ikke tjener sanfundet, er det en illusion.
