220K Rainbow(s)

 

The series 220K Rainbow(s) is an extension of a piece entitled 10K Rainbow, created two years ago with a group of colored pencil drawings encompassing the concepts of patterning, repetition and color. While working on this series, I began contemplating my medium of choice; perhaps my work would be viewed differently had I used an alternative material? I wondered how the series would be perceived if I had sculpted each piece or what reaction would result if this was a series of cross stitchings. 220K Rainbow(s) is an exploration of this inquiry.

 

My major sources of inspiration for this project are my attractions to the aesthetics of Pop Art and the influence of the craft tradition in my hometown. Further inspiration is drawn from my pursuit of dual majors in Business/Economics and Studio Art. Studying these often widely divergent disciplines has impacted the art I create and has prompted me to look for connections between the art and business worlds. Pop artists referenced the business concepts of mass production, advertising, and consumer culture. Similarly, craft-making, while often a domestic pursuit, is seen as being market-driven; craft items are commonly functional and thus sold for profit.

 

These three influential elements, Pop Art, craft, and Business/Economics, are united within the walls of this art museum.  Walking through the gallery, consider how the materials used impact how you interact with and feel about each piece. Varying the media used in 220K Rainbow(s) while keeping the images constant has allowed me to showcase the importance of material choices and point to how these choices can ultimately change the way a piece is viewed.
