Enlarging is a powerful visual strategy. Otherwise, we would not love Georgia O’Keefe’s work quite so much.
For this art challenge, choose a small object from nature– a seed, mushroom, cherry, shell, etc. Spend a few minutes observing the object’s details. Make an image in which the object is at least TEN times larger than the original (1 inch = 10 inches!). Don’t hesitate to let the image bleed off the edges of your surface to create interesting negative shapes.
- Color or black & white
- 2D or 3D
- Any surface, any medium
- Draw from direct observation preferred where possible
Deadline is October 10. Send your image to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send along a title, or I’ll come up with one (and it’s sure to be wrong!).
