Bridge 2: Political Spaces Sketchbook + Final Drawing – Nathaniel



For this project, I wanted to portray the ominous feeling that I got when being in the stairwell that connects the first and second floor of the University Center. I felt that the monotone palette of the painting that hangs opposite the stairs, paired with the massive skull that occupies at least one third of the painting, creates a dark atmosphere within the stairwell. My response to this space features a grotesque, human like head, wrapped in the tangles of a geometric abstraction. The head was inspired by the skull within the painting, while the line work serves as my reaction to the sharp geometric architecture that makes up the stairwell.
