I start with a simple line drawing
...and then I shade everything in with charcoal!
over half way done!
THE FINAL RESULT:
This piece is a response to the topic we were given in my printmaking class:
THE OBJECT RECONSTRUCTED
I chose the clock as my object because I am fascinated by the idea of time. It has been said that time is Einstein's unfinished revolution, and there are so many questions to be answered: Who created time? What is time? Why does time slow in gravity and motion? Is time a dimension? Can we stop time? And, of course, Does time even exist?
There is so much unknown information about time. In my eyes, time is a mysterious dimension... a parallel universe. After doing exhaustive scientific research, and questioning the existence of time, I decided to take a step back and relate this topic back to nature. It was then that I realized that nature defines time through growth. Spirals, tree rings, and rock layers are nature’s clocks.
What do you think!?
