Lenyllyn Zanabria for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)
Inspiration Piece: M.C. Escher's Relativity
Inspiration Artist: M.C. Escher, Andy Warhol & Roy Lichtenstein
I was inspired by M.C. Escher's Relativity. I knew I wanted to do this piece since I saw it. I knew I wanted to put a twist to it, but in the beginning, I had a difficult time figuring out what I can do to make my piece stand out. I then thought about mixing it up and decided that I wanted to reinvent it pop art style. I was always inspired by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and I knew that I wanted to incorporate their works of art somehow.
I started cutting the wood blocks into little pieces using an electric hand saw. These pieces were my stairs. I then used the thin wood sheets and the cardboard box to create the walls and floors. I used glue, clay, paper strips, and wood blocks as reinforcement. I had to make sure that my measurements were accurate so all the pieces fit together once I assembled the pieces. I used paint and ink to draw/paint the walls and floors with artworks from Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
