Photomanipulation and digital paintwork (CS5).
Collaboration with eleveneleven
This is a digital paintwork adaption I did a few months ago of a piece called Well I Closed my Eyes…and Nothin’ Changed by eleveneleven.
Shannon kindly allowed me to use one of her images, giving me free reign of interpretation and creativity. After seeing the initail self-portrait I felt I could use the image in a response to its intriguing title which she referenced to Arcade Fire
I liked the reflection and despondency in the pose and tried to enhance on that and give further depth to the intrigue that the work portrayed. Subtle changes in the reflective elements were added to give another dimension to the story.The text was the literal response that initially sparked my idea.
I am a big fan of Shannon’s work and am very grateful to her for allowing me to use the image. I hope to do further work with her in the future. Please use the link and go have a look at her portfolio.
