MCC Art Competition 2017
Theme : ‘Listen with the ear of your heart’
For the Mater Christi College Art Competition I created a multifaceted mix media artwork. On watercolour paper, is a vibrant floral watercolour base, which includes further detail and textures illustrated using soft pastels. Upon the base, is black layers of paper cut abstractions, that mimic both floral patterns and sound waves.
The paper cut face and ear emerge from the vivid arrangement, but are also constricted and laced with its fullness. The face is also watercolour and soft pastel on watercolour paper.
My work is called ‘Listening to more than sound’, which encompasses listening as more than just the sense of hearing. Listening involves understanding and considering of the relevance of words, and how these words add something to what we do.
