Nouveau Industrial Hollywood
In these two pieces I wanted to explore the lush implications of Mucha’s famous nouveau style frames with two sociological evils.
I feel that Mucha, famous with his beautiful and iconic works would make an interesting juxtaposition against two perceived negative human tendencies. Many of Mucha's famous works of art are bountiful and generous to the eye.
In Materialism, I definitely felt the strong need to defy Mucha's classical style. The palette remained muted and somber pushing through me to develop the grit and overall dirty or oily background.
