In class we were given the assignment to explore concentration and isolation. Concentration is the grouping of a shape into one focal point. In class I used a butterfly stencil to start with and then move on to just the wing as a less recognizable shape, and then finally onto a simple grouping of circles. In each area the focal point is clean and clear but without seeming forced, which tends to match my personal aesthetic.
Isolation creates a focal point using more than one object of shading of one object to bring the eye to the one piece that stands out from the rest. Again I made use of the butterfly stencil while working on my isolation pieces. I used the butterfly in two of the four as its full shape. In my fourth piece I used the wings to create a type of flower pattern, and in the third I simply used lines and a circle to play with the eye movement from inorganic to organic.
looking back on these pieces I am beginning to notice the fact that I do tend to do more simple and clean pieces than chaotic and over lapping. But this is just my own opinion of my work.
