Finally finished project! Very happy with out come. It was hard to make the first cuts but once i got started it was all good. Never realized how painful sewing 3 layers of canvas together could be.
Marela Zacarias' work focus on large, color filled fabric. She works to combine painting and sculpture. Her work focuses and is characterized by an interest in site specificity, the history contained in objects, and current events. She makes both free standing and wall sculptures.
Lots of layers and different techniques. I tried putting it on the floor and then letting the paint run on its' own. Finished up painting, just need to cut apart and reassemble.
Started next project. Thinking of painting this as one piece like last time then transforming it. So far I like the colors that I've made/ mixed. I really like staining and removing the paint from the fabric.
Franz Ackermann is German based, and most of his work focuses on large installations. They are bright, spacious, and colorful. The work focus on the themes of travel, globalization, urbanism, and tourism. He uses a mix of the location's history, as well as his interpretation and feeling from the mural location. The work frequently focuses on the dual sides of tourism, the glamour as well as the destruction.
