Third year Graphic Communications Management student Jennifer Huynh has sent us some captivating visuals, and has provided us some insight into each work. These pieces showcase a wide range of talents, including geometrical accuracy, impressionist technique and experimentation with shape and shadow.
Medium: hard-edged painting with acrylics on canvas.
Description: The hard edge is juxtaposed with an impressionist-like under layer, while cool colours are layered with warm. I like to play with contrasting themes and styles to create artwork that is not completely comfortable. To me, the juxtaposition of opposing elements creates a sense of unusualness in this work.
Medium: multimedia (wax crayons and an acrylic mixture) on paperboard.
Description: This piece is quite different from my usual work as I did not plan ahead by creating multiple primarily drawings or research. I just started doodling on the prepared paperboard. This doodle technique is called Zentangle, where arbitrary thoughts are translated into patterns on the page.
Medium: pencil on paperboard
Description: This is a drawing of a broken clasp on a bracelet. On the actual clasp, there is an open ring showing where it broke off, while the shadow shows a closed ring.
