#TOAFtakeover It was an honour to be asked to create the image for this year’s official opening night invitation for @theotherartfairaus. I had an idea to place spectators inside a surreal gallery, but as I worked on it, the piece simplified in a more graphic style, and became focused on only the two figures. I titled the image Art Call to Arms as the woman seems to be demonstrating for the art cause. The neon tubing background was a way to bring a night vibe to the invite. For the fair I have recreated the original idea into a large-scale collage, come and see the final result! • • • #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday #theotherfairaus #clintongorst @clintongorst.art #collage #analogcollage #studio #cdgstudio
#TOAFtakeover I’m also currently inspired by the classical past. With this large collage, the pieces started coming together as soon as I realised the ancient wall perfectly fitted in scale to the large pool picture. Also the arch shape reflected in the pool water which was a thrilling coincidence. I then built the picture up with ruins, arches, roof sections, and pillars. A found statue looks as though its at the bottom of the pool, arm outstretched to the surface. • • • #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday #theotherfairaus #clintongorst @clintongorst.art #collage #analogcollage #studio #cdgstudio #classical
