A Crack In The Ground

A Crack In The Ground
Photo Description:
A mixed media piece, inspired by the shape and form of a crevice. The limited colour palette puts emphasise on the darks and lights of the piece which give it an overall 3-Dimensional feel for the viewer. The ripped cardboard on either side of the crevice is used to create texture and also to add to the destructive feel of the crack. The more controlled use of string, on opposite corners, juxtaposes with the messiness of the cardboard which distinguishes the different materials from one another, and to emphasise the refinement of the string. The string is not painted on; to retain its organic feel and colour.
