North Bank Park Columbus
When creating this piece, I wanted to capture the vibe of the city. My objective was to feature a cross section of individuals from all lifestyles in a vibrant setting. I chose North Bank Park as the location. The park is centrally located and features a wonderful backdrop of the city. My research consisted of doing Google searches and a couple of visits to the park to survey the lay out. I begin with creating the background and gradually working into the foreground. Each structure is broken down into different planes prior to considering color and fabrics. My only apparatus is the xacto knife. It allows me to make precise cuts and gain control over rugged fabrics such as denim. Each heavily layered piece is arranged strategically to give the illusion of a painting when viewed from a distance of 3 feet out.
