Across the Universe Paint Co.

The second project in the art course was appropriation. For this project I decided to appropriate the lyrics of the Beatles song "across the universe." the work is made of hand dyed fabrics, with free-flowing coral/peach fabrics and tightly braided blues.
The concept for this piece is to link the visual and the audial experiences. Often words are meant to evoke specific images or specific visual experiences are attempted to be recorded with language. With this piece I tried to visualize the lyrics of the song "across the universe." I chose to specifically focus on the phrases "pools of sorrow" and "waves of joy" and tried to find both color and form that represent what these phrases evoked in my mind.
