A couple of springs back, I saw an installation by Ammar Eloueini at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.
The structure made of lit triangular shapes intrigued me. So I included the experience on my dot-art-idea list. The question became how to best depict what I had seen and make it
acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"
Fortunately I was able to purchase a book about his work. Recently I skimmed through the book looking for the basic elements of his designs. Triangles and lighting were the two most dominant features. Already I had chosen two dark blue shades for my background. So then I painted lighter blue dots in the shape of triangles on top it. I used varying tints of blue to create intensities. To make the image mine, I loosened the grid in places so that it wasn’t quite so rigid and accurate.
