Mixed Media Monday - Body Parts
I believe that often the whole is more than the sum of the individual parts, and this is rarely more true than in people, yet often it is only the individual parts that are considered. Henry Ford who pioneered assembly line production is reputed to have asked why it was that when all he wanted were the hands did they have to be attached to whole man. So I have taken some parts - an eye, a neck, a back, a face and a foot (well shoe to be precise) and arranged them to a cube. I have used a variety of acrylic paints and texture gell, done a gell transfer of the music onto the cube and the "body parts" ( I begin to feel like a pathologist!)are on acetate making them less than the whole.
