Christian Ard, Student Work

Coupled Beings

Dimensions: Approx. 4" x 4" & 4" x 6.6"
Materials: Black Plasti Dip, Gouche, soft pastels, tape

The transformation drawing began with a tonal drawing on a large sheet of paper and ended with a sculptural piece. Coupled Beings explores duality. Compressed in a book press to get the final shape, all previous marks and materials are still within the inside of the folded pieces. I chose to focus on duality because of the process of this project. Being someone who pays a lot of attention to detail and seems to be fairly picky over smears and smudges, through the process of this project I was able to experiment and understand more of a loose/no expectation side of creating that has allowed me to express myself more clearly.
