This is a inspired piece from Hockney's Joiner. I worked on this with Kendall, we had to review how to do this and I took about 60 photos to get this final piece. I was able to take a quicker approach by setting up my Photoshop file better. I created a matte with all the 3x3 cut outs and I was able to place photos underneath that layer. This allowed me to arrange them in the correct way that looked aesthetically pleasing. That gave me more unity and variation that looked scanned across. Craftsmanship was equally important, the layout on the paper meant no gridded pencil lines could show, which was difficult because of using PVA glue. The most difficult part of this project was trying to achieve a Chiaroscurro lighting effect. We had one light source to use but others in Gallery 10 also had lights that filled in the shadows to Kendall. While I know there are many projects to do, since this involved photography, I felt very comfortable with this. Some of the vocabulary learned was:
Line, Shape and Form, Space and Perspective. All of which you can see were important aspects to this project.
