Well, it’s time for finals, and for my figure drawing class I have to create a large-scale composition of “non sequential bodily forms.” Basically a bunch of body parts that normally aren’t next to each other. They can be separate or conjoined like a Frankenstein creation. I’ve decided to take mine in a more surrealist direction, morphing body parts with rhyming forms into an analogous structure. It’s sort of like M.C. Escher but with body parts. The creations are very surreal and eerie, so I’m emphasizing the anxiety of the composition by using shades of black and gray with accents of night shades, like blue and violet. I’ll post some pictures if I get the chance, and I’ll definitely get a shot of the final product. Until then I’m going to be spending a LOT of time drawing this weekend.
