Art Nouveau Style Dragonflies

19 Aug

Art Nouveau DragonflyDragonfly Mandala painting

It is time again for Place des Arts’ Annual Teacher & Staff Show Art Feats, from September 5-October 5 with the opening reception from 7pm-9pm on Thursday, September 12, 2013. For this exhibit I created a mixed-media, 3D dragonfly inside a circular shape and a painting in response to the sculpture. Pairing work is a technique that works well for me. 

Artist Statement: “There is something both ancient and other worldly about the dragonfly. They first appeared on earth during the Palaeozoic Era (wingspans of over two feet) and have been a source of inspiration to artists as far back as the Egyptians who created dragonfly amulets (2000 BCE). During the last five years my fascination for dragonflies (rooted in childhood) has been coming out in my art. This particular pair of works draws on the decorative and ornamental style of Art Nouveau for inspiration.”
