Prompt: How do visual images enhance or create meaning? What can signs and symbols convey? Address these questions by using the concrete elements of design and observational drawing to explore and develop a visual language.
For this project, I decided to expand on the idea of “mark making” by including color and texture in my work. My approach came from a stylistic decision to embrace the bizarre by turning to pop art references for inspiration. I particularly like Andy Warhol’s interpretation of “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli and wanted to mimic his process in modernizing and aestheticizing iconic imagery.
