This naturescape project is composed mostly from oil pastels and scratches, and inspired by scientific documentaries and sci-fi movies. "Dans le Ciel" means "In the Sky" in French. Since it's such a rare opportunity to see some of nature's greatest phenomenons in person (one of them being impossible), one might as well make it for themselves. One is of a volcano eruption, one is of the northern lights, and one is of the sky from another planet.
Ξεφορτωθείτε (Xefortotheíte) translates to "get rid of it" from Greek to English, although the translation was originally "Hildima," translated from the text within the image above. It depicts a strange, crying creature caught within the web of a spider, after it has been lured in by the sweet smell of flowers. This piece was created through the use of ink, markers, watercolour pencils, and a questionable mind.
My artwork was based off of that of a web and a warp into a void. Most pointy shapes within this artwork is pointed to the center as if it’s being dragged there, along with smaller particles to give it more trippy. The Japanese in the middle translates to “confusion,” because that’s how it’s supposed to make one person feel when they look at it. If looked at closely, a malicious grin would appear on the piece. This artwork was made from a few layers of ink, graphite, and charcoal along with scraps of paper glued there. This piece was inspired by a show that uses a lot of abstract art and Russian/Dutch animation that contradicts the normal cartoon style to give an area a twisted, otherworldly feeling. This may be a good first step for the future, since these methods of contradicting art styles make it odd, but with intention. These seem to hit off in a lot of shows and movies that include elements relating to “another reality.”
