So basically all you see here except that midsection in the middle is background. Medium - collage (important in like, three more lines, don't worry)
I know what is the foreground/what it needs to be
I've struggled for months with a couple of pieces:
1) how to drastically differentiate the foreground image from the background
2) what materials to use to create the foreground (to give that piece of the collage the meaning I want, as well as to help achieve #1)
And also, but unrelated to the above literal artistic stump-age, whether this piece of work is useful/important to me, enough to finish it (or whether I might be more glad to chuck the whole thing, in part for what it represents to me), or whether it's just kind of self-obsessed and masturbatory.
Sucks cuz everything up to here, I 100% thought out, figured out, the pieces I selected to collage from all made sense and worked great, etc etc. This piece doesn't have to mean anything to anybody but me and I don't care about other people 'interpreting' it or etc. I know that I'm the only person who's probably ever going to look at it and know, understand, or even care what's driven this piece, the personal meaning behind all the elements in the piece, etc, etc. I know it's not professional art and it won't ever be hung or appreciated anywhere. That's ok. This piece, from the start, was really and truly intended as by me, for me, about me, and about overcoming/rising above.
I don't think I have to finish this piece to successfully overcome anything or put anything behind me. But I think the piece of art would be a nice depiction for me that meant a lot to me about how I felt at this time in my life.
Who knows? I started this in, like, June.
