Layers of Love - Part 3
directed, shot, edited, drawn, and painted by Le Christine
9” x 12” Acrylic on Watercolour paper

3/3 in a series titled Layers of Love made for an artist showcase at a local sandwich shop.

Musiques du Monde (2013)Le Christine12” x 12” x 8” X-Acto Knife, Sandpaper (400-600  grit), Tacky Glue, and 3/16” thick foam core
This was one of the most exhausting, yet rewarding projects that I have done. My favorite part about this piece is that it is interesting to look at with any point of view or angle it is set in. The idea was to create a three dimensional abstract landscape; but instead of stacking and building up, I decided to push the landscape horizontally, getting inspiration from music soundwaves mixed with the classic architectural modeling of natural environments. The hard part of this project came with the construction. Each piece of foam core was cut with an X-Acto knife and sanded down, then laid down with tacky glue 3/16 of an inch apart from one another. This sculpture consists of 40 pieces of foamcore across a 12”x12” square.

Play-Dough (2013)Le Christine2.2” x 8.5” x 6.2” Orange Play-Doh
Play-Doh cupcake! I used some Play-Doh mixed with brown acrylic paint for the cake, and the original orange Play-Doh for the icing, along with bits of the container as sprinkles. The cup was made by cutting strips of the container and hot gluing it back together in a cupcake cup pattern. This was really fun, it brought back a lot of childhood memories.

Pagoda Deconstructed (2012)Le Christine11” x 14” Acrylic Paint on Bristol
Pagodas have always reminded me of individual one story homes stacked on top of each other, probably because each one of the levels has its own tiled roof. Here is what a pagoda would look like with all of its individual pieces taken apart,or what a pagoda would look like in an instruction manual,or what a pagoda would look like in a gravity-less future.Any of those are acceptable descriptions.
