Title: Anniversary, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
No Image Available We did an assignment based on artist, Henri Matisse, who is famous for the paper cutouts he created as a way to simplify a subject down to its most essential elements. I chose to do a slightly abstract ballroom with a dancing couple in honor of my parents' upcoming anniversary. I used a limited color palette and really spent a lot of time deciding on the placement of each paper shape, striving for asymmetrical balance. i wanted to create a feeling that everything in the image is somehow an important part of a story. My simple title is an attempt to get the viewer to wonder who the couple is and what their story is.
