Create > Hidden Structure

Goal:  Create a structure with concealed elements

animate, empathize, fantasize

Studio Activity:  
Design and make a three-dimensional construction that ‘opens up’ to reveal an interior structure.  

Be inspired by Talwst’s unexpected scenes hidden inside jewelry boxes >
Ornate jewelry boxes set the stage for tiny painted scenes filled with nearly-microscopic human figurines. The boxes are meticulously crafted by Canadian-Trinidadian artist Talwst, who uses mixed media to explore the narrative of art history in combination with elements of contrasting cultures. Although his vintage boxes may cast an ancient light on the scene, the boxes encapsulate a present day cultural commentary through their arrangements.

Be further inspired by ‘ROA’ >
Belgian artist ROA (previously) just opened his first solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC titled Metazoa. The new series of mixed media works feature the artist’s familiar black and white depictions of animals painted on various cabinet-like furniture pieces that can be opened or shifted to reveal anatomical details. ROA often chooses to depict animals native to where he is working, specifically species that have been forced from their native habitats and now live on the outskirts of urban areas.
