Blinded No More
The goal for this project was to explore a subject area of animals and their symbolism. My research was based heavily on the concept of animal representation and spirit symbolism in history and art from both Western and Eastern culture.
I found most of my inspiration through understanding certain animal’s characteristics and conveying this visually via water colour and graphite drawings. In addition, research influenced me to develop my own symbology and personal meaning to my artwork which then led me to be more experimental with composition and application of painterly materials in order to convey my concepts.
The final images show the relationship I wanted to represent between human and animal and how these spirit guides can be portrayed.
