FIRST PIECE: GAMES OF THE HEART
The emotional game the mind plays with the heart when you are in love gave me inspiration for this piece .This particular piece uses a referential heart shape. Pieces from poker chips, playing cards, pool balls and dice form a nearly symmetrical image. All of these games pieces are geometric shape. The texture is real. This piece has mainly neutral colors with touch of unilateral warmth. The darkness of red chips and the lightness of the white chips could create a sense of value. There is no rhythm but maybe some repetition with the colors and shapes. All of the pieces used were found around my house so I guess it’s economical. The negative shape from the back drop gives a sense of deep space but this piece has height, depth and width so it is an actual 3-D image.
