My final piece for an art class I took! Loved making this one.
About this creation
This was a really fun project to do. Our task was to make an abstract or nonrepresentational piece, and it could be a sculpture. Well, having waited both terms for this kind of an assignment, needless to say, I was thrilled.
I won't say too much until you've taken a look at it, but you can have some various angles here :) I took nearly thirty different shots and different angles, but these were my favorites, with my chosen favorite and submitted work being the top picture up there.
And the figure itself. Very simple, but for a quick throw together I like him. I had originally planned on offsetting his proportions even more than this, but I settle on this because I figured it'd do.
Creator's Comments: As I've said, I loved this. Upon hearing our task for this project, I immediately thought of the Blaue Pferd artists who were inspired by music to make their paintings. I've always been very effected by color and sound, so I wanted my piece to be a piece that uses color and gives the impression of sounds or music. I don't know if I captured that effect here, but I had a lot of fun testing this technique at least! I was given various interpretations of what this piece might mean, but I think I'll just leave any further idea I had on that to myself and see what you all come up with.
I think I shall try something like this more often :)
Tell me what ya think. And tell me which angle is your favorite!
I think this particular Moc really shows off both your Mocing ability and your artistic mind Gale, it's a very stark and beautiful piece, and that's saying something considering this is art from LEGO. Definitely deserves a five LEGO smiley rating.

I love the curves of loose bricks and how the black figure is standing like a conductor of an orchestra, perhaps influencing the shape that the stripes take?
That is one of the effects I was going for there. I wanted him to seem like he was creating or influencing the lines and what they did. I really like the connections that you can make between sound and color.

Okay. What made you pick those colors and shapes? Also, I think the last angle is my favorite :3.
A number of things actually, but most prominently was the fact that with different combinations of those five colors, you can make almost any other color. Also, I liked the wispy, organic like shape for the pieces on the ground, as I wanted it to be a very musical piece. I'm glad you like it :)
