As I mentioned previously, I had not heard of Barbara Kruger before I started this project, but the first box I made was so much like her work that one of the tutors suggested I look at her. It seems crazy I had not heard of her as her work seemed so familiar, at least the work with the black white and red colour scheme. Today after setting up part of my work in G-Space for the critique, I started to think about my colour scheme and why it seemed to much a part of me, just natural colours for me to use.
When I got home I went through some old sketchbooks and art stuff, and there it is over and over, black white and red. I wonder why I like these colours so much? The images below are from smaller pieces of art that I did between 2009 and 2012:
And the image below shows my workings and designs for posters and a T-Shirt for NMIT Creative Industries, these were done throughout 2013.
