An abstract response and reflection on the elements that exemplify the violin and its elements. A marriage of assorted representational forms, lines and shapes dictating these musical vessels. I wanted to create a piece that simplified the subject down into its raw forms, combining them in a rhythmic and chaotic medley that flows with its own soulful energy. Keeping to just black and white and shades within this spectrum, I worked to convey each form so that they are allow the viewer to form shapes and objects of the musical kind from the images dictated. A challenge for myself, as a colourist, to step into the unexplored realm of monotone...I couldn't resist a inclusion of gold, perhaps a subtle portrayal of the majestic stance of the violin in my heart! Created from acrylic paints, gold pen and old violin manuscript. An abstract piece for all to enjoy!
