Andrea Zittel

For today post I wanted to talk about Andrea Zittel. Zittlel was born in California in 1965. She has a bachelor in painting and sculpture. Andrea has a wide array of objects and sculptures that she has created. Most of what she makes are things that could be used in real life, everything from clothes to everything that is needed for a house. Her clothes are very organic and kind of looks similar to what I think the first clothes looked like. Some of the clothesĀ  are complex like suits, showing she has a high level of skill when it comes to sewing.

One of her works that I really like is the suburban sprawl studies, each picture is a layout of a suburban community done a little like a kaleidoscope. The amazing thing about these photos is that you can not tell that they areĀ suburban community layouts until you examine them closely.

Collage

CollageI have a love of eyes, I believe they tell us everything er need to know about a person. A few years ago I took the picture above and I thought now would be a great time to cut up the photo and turn it into a collage. I went into Photoshop and change the entire image to black and white. Then adding layers of light opacity of green over the eyes until it was just the way I wanted them. The eye on the right was harder to do as the hair is covering parts of it up. I had to decide whether or not to try to get in to the small cracks between the hair. After taking the time to go in and add the color I decided I did not like how it turned out and quickly erased it all. The last and easiest part was cutting it up into 3 pieces and separating them to different pictures. One day I want to print them on canvas and hang it up.
