Paper Sculpture

This artwork is of a geometric shape with a paper flower on the top. The material that I used was white paper. I chose this specific artwork because I liked the contrast between the geometric shapes at the bottom and the floral design at the top. The elements of art that I used were shape form and space. The principles of design that I used were balance and contrast. The composition rules and techniques that I used were leading lines and informal balance. The meaning behind this work of art is to get outside of your comfort zone and try new things. This project relates to my life because over the years I have had to take classes in school that don't interest me creatively, but this year I have been able to take a lot of different art classes and this work of art represents the growth of my artistic ability. This artwork is showing the structure of classes such as math or sciences vs. creative classes such as art. If I could change anything I would make it bigger and add more flowers on the top.
