A 3D realisation of MC Escher's infamous 'Relativity' piece -one that came to me in a dream about distorted clocks and stairs, and I was bending with them. This was the answer to a big problem I'd been experiencing for months now -artist block.
At this point in my life I still hadn't discovered my so-called 'niche' in the great stratosphere of design -a certain vein in all my artwork to hint to people that it's mine. Such as pointilism is to Seurat, the Australian Bush is to Streeton, or the female mystique is to Davinci. What was mine? What was my trademark?
Then it occurred to me that an artist doesn't need to have that strong 'individual streak' so apparent in all of their works. They would never evolve artistically, right? We can be multi-faceted.. explore many styles, materialise them through different approaches, through different doors in order for the artist to perhaps, understand the many faces and doors of their own soul? Nevertheless they are all linked and relative to eachother, driven by our desire to explore. Just like Escher's 'Relativity'...
I digress. Back to the piece: This project was also an experimentation with Radiosity; no textures, and just area lighting. I'm going to take the concept a bit further by using it as a theme for my multimedia portfolio -with this render being the splash page, and all the hidden doors and arches will take viewers into other pages.
