|too dark too fast|
When I started the practice, I was flipping through magazine, looking for something pretty or interesting to paste. I had no theme or story that I intended to tell through my work. Since, I was looking at magazines like People and Teen Vogue, I realized how much these magazines focus on beauty. I wanted to take a slightly critical view of that in my practice. So i cut out pictures of pretty women, shoes, and other stuff we tend to regard as beautiful. My favorite picture is of this girl sipping a drink, and layered beneath that is a green eye. I tried to make it seem like its a complete picture and as if they both are meant to go together. when the viewer looks at it, I want him to realize that when we look at a person we tend to look at the outer beauty only (thus the eye weird but pretty in its own way).
In the third practice I tried to see if could make a picture on the first layer and then layer with black on top of it.It was similar to a pciture of text Id seen that had used to a similar effect to make text stand out. Personally, it was kinda hard to layer black paper so carefully and precisely. I also should have used colors that were more contrasting, it would have made my picture more appreciable to the eye
