Gelatin Prints

Artist Statement:

The subject of this artwork is bees in a beehive. The materials that I used were gelatin prints, ink pens, and watercolor paint. The elements of art that I used were color and texture. The principals of design that I used were movement and scale. The composition rules that I used were informal balance. This project relates to my life because I really like the intricacy of perfectness of bee and how every single bee works together to create a unified system. If I could change anything about this artwork I would add watercolor paint to the second drawing and start experimenting with adding new material such as wax or honey on top of the prints to give more dimension.
