mother daughter art collaboration

8 Nov

Iona’s project for the weekend was to create an image with an unconventional material. Since our house is filled  with enough beach plastic for 900 tees this material was kinda obvious.
So.

She created and image of Jon Kortajarena, her favorite male model, in blue beach plastic bits awaiting sewing onto tees…

    Congratulations on a fabulous job. First, a good eye for good looking guys. Second, a
    truly original idea, well executed, in my favorite blue. I’m always pleased to see plastic
    transformed into something beautiful. Well done!

    I am really impressed! Strong graphic sensibility in Iona. How was she able to reproduce the different versions? I’m interested in how the image was drawn so the plastic bits went in the right places. More info or is it a trade secret? If so, that’s OK. Good prize-worthy work.

      Thank you both, coming from you this means a lot to her! She took an image of her favorite subject and in photoshop created strong contrast of the image, then she had to create a piece inspired by Vic Muniz’ work. The original was created in blue plastic, copying the shading of the model’s photo, she took pix until it looked right. Then she used the simple iphoto edit system to turn image into sepia and black and white versions. The repeat was done in Powerpoint…

    Great job!!!

    Oh how I miss mother-daughter DASH art projects… now I’m drenched in mother-daughter NWSA theatre projects, which is a whole new ball game.
