Starry Night (Basis)

   by Elika Azizi and Kajol Majhail for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: Starry Night

Inspiration Artist: Vincent Van Gogh

The background for our project is canvas painted with papier mache details in the sky. We added sculpey and made a moon adding it onto the canvas.
We used the wire for the armature (tree/tower) in the original painting and stuffed it with newsprint that was the packing material and painted it green.
The 'houses' are small constructions of oil based clay and wood, painted for detail. These objects all sit on a base of wood painted dark to resemble the ground.
