Critical! by kalessaradan
This is the seventh piece in my Gesture series, a series of works that use imagery of my own hands. I start with a basic concept, one that by definition is concise and easily understood. However, these concepts often are viewed differently by each of us, as our experiences and point of view greatly affect our interpretation and personal meaning of these ideas. From this simple concept, I use the imagery of hands to build upon the idea and make it my own.
Critical! was a fun break from the seriousness of my previous Gesture pieces. It is a reference to M.C. Escher's works, something that is very inspirational to my art, as well as a reference to Dungeons & Dragons, a game I have played since I was a child.
The original plan had been to complete 2 pieces, one with the 20 facing forward, and one with the 1 facing forward, titles Success and Failure. At this time only one is completed though.
