Rozlyn Winningham, an art three student, has been working on a triptych for about two weeks attempting to perfect the details of her project. A triptych is a set of multiple pictures brought together to form a single concept, historically religious, yet can vary to other subjects. For her interpretation of the project, Rozlyn created a set of three pictures centered around the head, body, and feet of three different animals in an attempt to create the illusion of an entire creature. When asked what inspired her artwork, she responded saying that it was her desire to be a vet and the vast impact animals have had on her life that made her find the topic for her triptych.
“The piece is different from what I usually do, it’s not controlled. It goes outside the lines and is very brightly colored. I usually work with more realistic art, and I started like that, but decided to change it.” From the description of her piece, it becomes obvious that Rozlyn challenged herself to step out of the lines of comfort and create something original. Her triptych turned out to be very unique in form and concept; below is a description of Rozlyn's work.
Head (First Picture)-Uses the head of a lion due to its strong, pretty, and unique characteristics. The orange color represents ferocity.
Body (Second Picture)- The horse body represents a balance of muscular strength and gracefulness. The color chosen compliments the other colors in the image; purple.
Feet (Third Picture)- The feet are those of a wolf due to its canine lineage and the artistic appeal of their feet. They’re blue to represent a cold, arctic feeling associated with them.
With each piece vital to the others, it brings together a unique experience to view and interpret. A job well done to this week’s artist. Rozlyn sets a promising stage for the amount of talent East Hamilton School contains.
