+ Project Information
Through the Gate is a contemporary interpretation of the venus of the present fashion in a state of nature and mind. The gate becomes a shallow chamber a little like a rudimentary stage set that serves to focus the subject and limit the arena of the picture. This series offers an opportunity to embrace the concept of bodily beauty that is not prescriptive or exclusive. If we suspend our judgment and give in to pleasure we cannot control, we may discover a gratifying expansion of ourselves as we follow Venus as her mind progresses in the evolving series.
Through the Gate started as a self-directed learning project for the graphic design course at Ringling College of Art + Design. I chose to focus on developing my illustration and animation skills, using this concept as a vehicle to measure progress.
Let’s blast off to wonder dimension.
