Blue Animation from ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ Echostains

‘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)
