hey guys! I realise this is really really stupid, but I changed art blogs and forgot to mention it on here! I moved to see0through.tumblr.com in september as a way to re-motivate myself to blog about art but I didn’t think to mention it on here because I didn’t realise this blog had followers. (i know, not my brightest moment :/)
So if you want to follow on there it could be neat, but no pressure :D Thanks for looking at this blog, it made me happy in my heart!
Some new work that, after reflection, I think looks better in digital form.
I love mosaics because it’s very difficult to convey expression, it’s inherent to the medium of gluing together lots of tiny pieces to make an image, not much precision on the facial features. As a result, greek and roman mosaics often have unfortunate expressions, that are inappropriately sassy for the occasion/time they were meant to celebrate.
Tiny art! The one with the magnifying glass really impressed me : the level of skill that has to take! Also that alone is enough proof that there was professional artists in those time : the level of no life required to achieve this is impossible if you don’t get paid for it.
And I thought the second one was just plain adorable, hits you right in the feelings : it’s so simple yet you can project so much onto it. For me it looks like he’s pleading, extending a hand with eyes all sad.
