Marien V-C's Heart!
Found object composition (b), Ink Stained, is made up of my old tattooing equipment, and incorporates most of the tools and pieces of equipment required to apply a permanent tattoo onto a person. The composition is three-dimensional, asymmetrical, polychromatic and varied, also unified, as it is formed of items that belong together to perform a specific task (this may be purely my opinion, I know). This piece includes repetition of circular shapes, and a sketchy, somewhat unfocused line made up from the cables of a foot pedal. I didn’t set out to emphasize any one point on this piece, but by virtue of their volume, also their darker values, the bottles on the left hand side serve to provide a focal point for the whole.
