I want to engage the viewers with the visual feast. Feed– not only their eyes – but also their emotions, their minds. That’s what I’m trying to achieve.
When I make an artwork I want to let the viewers break the code, let them decipher, let them ask questions. This will engage my artwork to the viewers, make them think what’s obvious and which is symbolic with the shapes and colors as their hints. The results may takes time, but often long lasted. They can study the meaning from the hidden objects, too. It’s like a feast, visual attraction as the main course, while solving the puzzle represent the dessert. For me it brings more spices for the artwork.
In this tutorial, Study Case: A.Con.Cept, I will show you the steps how I made this artwork, not particularly, but more general techniques instead. Be warned that all of these following techniques might be easily used, but still requires more experience and experimentation to master.
