turn a worthless bush into a humungous birdhouse.
A block from work, a vibrant scene, and I have been so busy with work that I have only been by to the general assembly twice.
Art spent today contemplating one of the big questions. Judging by his body language he hasn’t worked out the answer just yet.
For this Warhol inspired piece I focused mostly on contrast. I chose the model (My friend and fellow photography enthusiast Rebecca) for her distinct looks and charming personality. This particular photo was chosen because this is one of the first photos I always remembered seeing of her when we first became friends. Art imitating life and vice versa.
The contrast of dark/light combined with color is Warhol’s signature style which compliments Rebecca’s striking eyes and hairstyle. Color was omitted from her face and skin as I wanted to present a simple but fresh uncluttered look. It is pleasant and complex at the same time.
The Dogon are an ethnic group living in the central plateau region of Mali, south of the Niger bend near the city of Bandiagara in the Mopti region. The population numbers between 400,000 and 800,000. The Dogon are best known for their religious traditions, their mask dances, wooden sculpture and their architecture. The past century has seen significant changes in the social organization, material culture and beliefs of the Dogon, partly because Dogon country is one of Mali’s major tourist attractions.
