This is the first work in my new unit VAR12. I have mentioned before that this unit involves abstraction, anamorphism and interesting ideas so it will be quite interesting. This assignment was to do a self portrait reflected in something round and shiny. I chose our doorknobs which are very shiny (oo shiny!) There isn’t too much distortion but I like the way it has turned out. I am gaining more confidence in my own work and in trying new and wierd things. this is done with a combo of texters and pen and the scrawly look is almost deconstructionalist. it had to be pen (we had a choice of pen and acrylics) because the knobs are stainless steel and brushed and pen created the best texture. the next assignment is a self portrait reflected in water. as usual you can click for a larger version of the image.
