‘Blue Animation is part of the ‘Echostains’ project. The project is about communication – all types. In the third part of the project (The Yellow Wallpaper), gestural marks are made to ‘suggest’ shapes, thoughts, feelings, etc. ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ is a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and tells the tale of a woman having some sort of breakdown, who begins seeing things in the wallpaper. It’s a good story…. and scary! Read it online through the link.
I have used colours related to Disney to suggest the actual ‘animation’. Whilst the technique is mostly gestural, there a a few recognisable forms in there.
Media used; Acrylic paint on canvas approx 18in x 12in (private collection)
