One Color, Two Attempts

Monochromatic pieces can be so powerful. I have long admired the work of a local artist Derek Gores who specializes in magazine collage and whose pieces are often monochromatic. His works are compelling to me because of their balance of intricacy and simplicity.

I took a class from Derek years ago and created the art piece of which I am most proud. Although I was most concerned with translating tiny pieces of magazines into a dimensional image, I also enjoyed the use of a single color. It was my first and, until Kate’s challenge, only monochromatic endeavor.

the inspiration: my mom

To see how attempt number two turns out, check out the V9 reveal next week!
