Thoughts ft Collage Mood Board
Going through the assignment at first, after interviewing Elle Shenk, I decided to base my project on a necklace she wore daily.
This piece of jewelry was a gift from her grandmother, who claimed it would wish her luck, happiness, and serenity.
As Elle talked about the necklace, I thought it would be an interesting concept to represent her through it.
Knowing Elle before the interview, I somehow discovered a dual personality: The fun, crazy Elle yet the calm, peaceful and girly side of her.
As we went through two artists in class : Ellen Gallagher and Wagechi Mutu, I got greatly inspired and decided to approach the Portrait with two different collages, differing in meaning and representation of Elle.
