Photo Description:
100 x 54cm Plaster Inspired by the theme of duplicating and overlapping I created plaster scaffolding poles which had an eroded feel to them due to the texture, but I included the aspect of subtlety so that the focus was on the natural destruction. The plaster makes the scaffolding seem pure and uncontaminated from rust, and they are very delicate which is opposite to normal scaffolding. I have overlaid them in a way that represents the assembly of scaffolding and shone a direct light onto them to create shadows. This contrast adds depth and contrasts the directions of the plaster poles and the shadows to make it seem like the patterns have been duplicated. I was inspired by the overlapping and meeting of scaffolding because the poles change composition from different angles, making it seem like part of the architecture. Idris Khan and Daniela Gullotta were my inspiration as they use the theme of distorting and overlapping to obscure the visual, whether it’s a painting or digital manipulation. These lines and directions that they create almost become part of the image itself, and they contrast with the detailed architecture in the background making both old and new work together in harmony to create a modern yet aged aesthetic.
