"The Birth of an Eye". Mixed media (oil over acrylic) on canvas (23' x 36'). Ilze Be, 2020.
In the carousel below, you can see the process of creation of "The Birth of an Eye". This painting was started during my birthday celebration. I invited my friends to use acrylic paint and paint on the canvas that I provided. Then, I brought the canvas home and let it sit for some time before I started working on it. I needed to be in front of my eyes and let my mind work in the background interpreting messages locked within.
Such a creation process reminds me a group collaoration process. When everyone participates, the picture may get muddy, but then I need to rely it's just a part of the process. Gradually, the shapes will start appearing.
In this instance, a bright picture where objects have clear boundaries was born and I immediately knew how to name this baby. I find it quite symbolic. To learn more and book an art event, please click here or the title above.
