Attention to detail
A-level art work.
My final project for college explored details within old architecture; in particular decorative features found in cathedrals. I began by drawing details I found interesting, and then transferred them to the computer where I created various digital compositions by duplicating and layering the drawings. Following some experimentation with symmetrical compositions, I designed a series of doilies (ornamental mats which have fine decorative details). I then placed the doilies under cut glass to crop particular features. The effects were quite interesting; creating abstract and detailed fragmentations of the original doily designs.
