Appropriation in Production

Above: heart formed by hanging keys in progress...

We kicked off the new semester in Art Three with a project about appropriation. Appropriation in art is the use of pre-existing objects or images with little or no transformation applied to them however, this project soon took on a life of it's own with most projects leaning towards parody or pastiche or something.. well, see for yourself.

She wanted to create a "lightning bug". To create the image she is combining collage with scanning real objects and also using Photoshop. Impressive when you consider she has never used any of these digital tools before. Risk taking.

Look at her expression... it says, "I got this Sands". OK, go for it. I'll be back later.. (just don't hit me).

This is going to be a caterpillar (bug) combined with the the truck manufacture. The base is an acrylic painting but she wants to incorporate 3D elements such as the Styrofoam ball sitting on the table.

Goldfish that are, well, gold...

She created the ring of fire for the tiger to jump through using string and wax. I'm not sure where she got the jumble box of matches.

How cool is that.. or should I say hot!

Meanwhile, outside on the picnic table someone is hammer out the truth...

The truth can be stretched.

More projects in the works....
