Project details

Overview

This piece was originally inspired from an initial colour/lighting study but after exploring the effects of neon lights and the various ways it distorted and impacted the final image, I created my own scene to demonstrate what I had learned.

What makes this a favourite artwork of mine is that the components are all working together to tell a story, whether that’s through the composition hiding them away from the outside world or the lighting bouncing around and reflecting their environment. From the fabric of the clothes to the metallic surface of the pipes I quickly discovered that to successfully convey the image I had in my mind, I had to consider the qualities of each component to effectively tell my story. I wanted the walls to look rough yet alive, contrasting against the smooth, overwhelming lights in the environment, all working together to frame the two characters within this world.
