works with various mediums such as pencils and prints but is predominately known for his relief art which can be shown in the photos below. He successfully has had many of his work on display, nominate for awards and showcased in museums as well as features in art magazines such as Hi Fructose Magazine and Juxtapoz Magazine.
His relief art in particular drew my attention as it was so delicate and complex as well as choosing colours that married well. i was also very impressed with how he actually assembled each of his art works and made it his own. The way in which he utilises the paper and other materials and being able to manipulate them to create such beautiful sceneries was very inspiring and has lead to me use his work to influence my own art work using similar techniques.
my response to gregory euclide (digital / physical manipulation)
This page is a follow on from my page dedicated to Gregory Euclide.
Like Gregory i started off by manipulating a piece of paper to create shapes and lines of which i could then use to help suggest and create images and objects of which i could make out. Unlike Gregory i decided to do mine digitally.
This is what the piece initially resulted in i really liked the range of colours chosen and i created this by over laying different strokes using the selected brushes i chose to create this natural scene. It isn’t identical to the techniques of which Gregory uses but it was heavily influenced. The image it self is of a waterfall/ river that is surrounded by forest.
I like that it is almost abstract in the way the colours slightly bleed into one another creating a sort of blurred affect.
I decided to play around with it a bit more to see if there were any other variations in which i preferred more, i ended up with this version which was made smaller put onto a green background. This in my opinion worked very well as the background somehow added more detail to the art piece. The colour also added to the vibrance and made the piece a lot more eye catching.
From here i printed out both versions on a wide format printer in the measurements A2.With the printed versions i then proceed to play around with arrangements ,manipulate and further abstract the piece resulting is some interesting outcomes of which the photos below exemplar
