A vivid, colourful collage artwork. I wanted to create a hommage to the era of 70's and started working on the series of canvases dedicated to that time.
"Love, peace, trippy, and far out."
"The 70's were a party, full of exploration without explanation. Colors and design exploded; television was cool and getting cooler, fashions...well, unfortunately they were what they were, but everything else in general was just plain "Far out".Music, film and television probably reached their finest hours, and art exploded with newer colors and more vibrant canvases."
There is some of the examples on 70's terminology, that I got from the site about 70's.
"Far Out" - really cool.
"Bummer" - this one needs no translation, but originated with bad acid trips, or something bad in one's life. Turned into an expression disappointment.
"Heavy "- Also cool, but deep, on a spacey, intellectual level. "Oh man, that's too heavy for me." Also pertains to great music, a pre-cursor to heavy metal.
"Joint" - Marijuana cigarette.
"Rip Off" - a swindle, cheat, theft. Often used to express major disappointment.
"Space "- To daydream, be lost in thought, or to forget to do something.
"Freak Out"-Originally, it was to be wild and go crazy about what was passionate to us. It also described panic, a bad acid trip, or just losing one's cool.
"Farm Out"- a derivative of "far out." A classic example of stupidity.
"Burn"-A cheat. To be cheated was to get "burned."
"Flash Back"- a revelation. An "ah-ha!" moment, to recall something nearly forgotten, or something you wish to forget.
"Munchies"- a universal term used today, but in the 70's, it referred to having the insane hunger symptoms that marijuana creates once the high starts to wear off.
"Right On"-Another time enduring expression. Meaning: yes, cool, I agree, you're right, you better believe it, yeah!
During the process I used Vintage images and acryic paint on Gallery style streched Canvas. Artwork does not requere framing.
