8.5″ x 11″, Adobe Photoshop
Scale change can have a range of affect on any given artwork, whether that be minuscule or large. In the case of this graphic design, scale change adds new dimension to the work as a whole. Placing a photographic design of me in the bottom right corner established a focal point. This is where the background comes into play. The nails let your eyes rest, creating a rhythm to the background; therefore, capturing a strong contrast.
The theme of this work was “tenacity”. The nails represent commitment and overcoming pain, whether it be physical or emotional. Now, I’m not one to delve into emotions and things of that nature, but I do notice and respect people’s emotions.
