Inspired by Pop Art, this print highlights the beauty of the human hand and symbolizes one’s willingness to be closer to nature. One of my main goals for this work was to find different color variations that would make the same images appear completely different and to create an optic illusion by replacing a section of one image with the same section from the other. The pattern highlights the similarity of a hand’s organic shape with a tree’s crown and roots. The gentle gesture suggests the need in closeness while also providing some support. It represents the perfect relationships that humans can have with nature or with each other.
I took the picture of my own hand in different positions, collaged them into one image and used it as a template to try out different color combinations in Photoshop.
