Variations On A Theme
I did an experiment this week using a print of one of my older artworks which I really loved (and still do.) This artwork above sold years ago, but I do sell the occasional small print of it. The original was tiny - probably about 5 x 7 inches, but it's so vibrant, vigourous and colourful with an authentic scrappiness which I adore.
I therefore decided to use do some more artworks based on this image - variations on a theme, if you like. By loosely basing some more artworks on one particular image I wanted to see what I would produce. Would repeating an image over and over result in three boring artworks, or would the repetition provide some startling or successful new works?
Below are the images of the three new artworks I created. The first one is a large 20 x 20 inch canvas and the other two are 10 x 12 inch canvasses.
