I have just started in my spare time on some more figurative/illustrative works, based on the industrial ambient music of acolyte also known as Craig Saunders. The piece above is based on his track Elegy - is one of tracks which I am working from - listen here.
In literature, an elegy (from the Greek word ἔλεγος, "lament") is a mournful, melancholic or plaintive poem, especially a funeral song or a lament for the dead.Elegy" (sometimes spelled elégie) and may denote a type of musical work, usually of a sad or somber nature.
Listening to the music, I allow myself to free sculpt/draw - creating works based off of the tracks, I plan to go into sections of these works to crop in on areas of the sculpt/drawing/render/mix to make more images - to then refine revisit and re -interpret. These works will be an iterative process and a way form to incorporate my illustrative/photographic dabbling's into my sculptural work.
Its early days with this process - allowing myself to be a bit more free form - and yes there is probably a bit more crossover with my commercial work - but its fun (melancholic fun).
Occasional updates from me.
