Exhibition Text This is my perception how I felt during a time where I was lost.
Inspiration For my triptych I wanted to make sure that a story was being told for others to interpret on their own. My main inspiration was my own experience. I put so much symbolism of how I felt during this time. I made it so others could also experience every aspect of me finding myself, my thoughts, and my decision. I also had some influence from the symbolism and impressionism movement. Everything I have on my triptych has a deeper meaning than what is shown. I actually put a roller coaster of emotions together all in one. It's really a summary of my story shown to you.
This was my first sketch I started with on m canvas. This one shows all my emotion, thoughts, and beliefs in this part of my triptych. In the this sketch i actually ended up taking out the on road.
This is the second sketch I came up with. This one is about my reflection of myself and having acceptance.
Experimentation When I first told about this project, I already started planning exactly what I visioned my story to be. When I actually started to sketch my ideas I had for the triptych, a lot things change on how I wanted to present what I wanted to be told. The more I drew what I wanted the more things changed and started coming together. Even as I was painting I changed some things like certain colors I had set in my head. As I was painting on my canvas were some things that I did struggle with, like making a straight line I had to keep going back in to get a complete line made. It was also a struggle to work with the paint because it kept drying up quickly and since didn't have acrylic thinner I had to use water all the time work a little quicker when I painted.
Process Before I started sketching my ideas and painting, I had to make my canvas first. To make it i need 6 (#in) and 6 (#in)and connect the ends together. Then I have to unroll enough sheet of canvas to fold over each of the three frames I made. After that you fold over the ends and staple down along the frame. I repeated that two more times. Once I Finished all of my canvas's I put two coats of primers on each canvas I had. After the canvas's dried I started sketching on them with pencil.
After I've finished my Triptych, I'm impressed on how well it turned out. I say this because i'm not to experienced in painting. I believe I did well with blending different colors together and being as clean as I could be with being inside of the lines. I differently had to be patient and take my time on this project because if you mess up one thing sometimes it would be very hard to fix it . what really helped me through out the whole time of making my triptych was drawing out what I was thinking because it me visualize exactly what I was thinking and allowed me to decide if that how I wanted to look.
