I’m working on the final surface design piece of the semester. The assignment is to create a compositional piece that uses layering and incorporates the idea of transformation. I decided transformation for me would be a form of abstraction.
I’m constantly drawn to geometric patterning and mid century modern aesthetics so it seemed natural to start there. I also wanted to draw on my own photographs and a colour palette from my environment.
The idea of incorporating movement and creating images from sounds like those heard in bebop was also part of my process. In the end I came up with two pieces. I like the simplicity of the shapes and processes and the movement that comes through in the layering.
