My entry to the “Praise of shadows” competition.
An explaination is probably in order here too..
The book the competition was based on addressed issue of traditional sensibilities being over-ridden by western influences,…leaving behind the natural world, and willingly entering into an artifically lit, technology driven environment.
What i was trying to portray here, was the old world, having been effected by technology, walks free of it`s own past into something unknown. Old world meets new, yet still being a part of one another.
The Pagoda creeps out of the panel of a wood-cut style print.
Aged paper textures, Spray paint & inks, all brought together in photoshop.
I`ve positioned the image on the shirt a little larger than I would have it printed, mainly so it`s details are clear..
Hope you enjoy.
