in My Work, Project 1 Emo

My line is emo: Artist inspiration

Inspiration 1: CY Twombly

Focusing on abstract work, I really like CY Twombly’s ‘scribbled’ art.

I wanted to do a line for love, mainly passion. When I think about a crazy, sort of passionate form of love, I envision two lovers being hopelessly together in their own messy world. CY Twombly’s style of ‘scribbles’ really resonates with what I envision the line to be, so I dove right in to try it out.

Tying two pens together with a fishing line (with the two pens signifying a pair of lovers), I let my emotions flow and thought of an image of messy love. Here is a video of me trying it out:



Emotion – Passion. I layered the same image below it to emphasize on the love between two people.

He is the few artists that I got my inspiration from. My other pieces are techniques that I found online 🙂
