Rain Project: Falling Rain of Matrix
This is a Limited Edition Digital Print for submission to the Rain Project, a theme based around ‘Rain’.
This is the third piece of work, inspired by the film ‘The Matrix Revoultions’ (2003) which stars Keanu Reaves (aka ‘Neo’), Carrie-Anne Moss (aka 'Trinity'), Laurence Fishburne (aka 'Morpheus') as humans, and their fight against the machines world of Hugo Weaving (aka 'Agent Smith'). This is last film in the series, that concludes with the fight in the Rain between Neo and Agent Smith, and the battle between the humans against the machines. Similarly in other work in the series it contains a series for Four Letter words, that are Falling, just like the falling green text when the humans connect to the machine world, similar to Falling Rain!
This work is a piece of Conceptual Art. Conceptual Art was first derived in the 1960s by Sol LeWitt and art is a 'concept' rather than a material object. Within his work the work follows a sequence of lines, vertical, horizontal or diagonal, that is repeated. These sequence can be repeated by anyone if given a set of instructions by the Artist (in the past Sol LeWitt has published a set of instructions to make a piece of his Art). More recently, Conceptual Art has lost this basic principals, and is almost applied to any Modern artwork. Within my work, I am reverting to these basic principals, of using a repetitive grid of vertical lines (vertical lines of Stripes of USA Flag), similarly vertical text (taken from four letter words from films), the same colours of Pop Art, Sky & Water (these are standard colours that come pre-installed within Illustrator and have not been modified by the Artist). Given these it is possible for anyone to recreate this piece of work.
This is a Conceptual piece of work, which follows a sequence of Four letter words, superimposed on the USA Flag. It contains a series of a series of 13 vertical stripes, of falling words, just similar to falling Rain. The Heart shaped Stars in Red, is to represent the Love between Neo & Trinity and contrasting Hate in Blue of Agent Smith, who tries to turn Neo from a Human to a Machine, clone of Agent Smith. The Stars have been superimposed with the initial of Neo (NEO), Trinity (TY), and Agent Smith (AS).
