As part of my painting project I wanted to look into time and see how we as people feel about time. Within this I want to look into decay and how much time we think we have and how this can effect our mental health.
I have been looking on the internet, for some references to see if I could find some influence on how I could present my idea. As I want to look into a mental health aspect to this as well. I wanted to look into chains and also human expression and anxiety.
Images I have found…..
These are some images I came across and decided I really liked. I wanted to bring in some kind of of way to show how we are trapped by time. The reason we are tapped by time is because, as humans we never think about it but the only thing we rely on is time. Some of us are lucky and will have years of time but other will only be given a small time here. Some miracle cases will mange to get more time but this is only borrowed time. At the end of this we have time given to us and we never know when we will run out. So we are trapped in a prison that we cant see.
This is my key image because this represents how humans feel when someone they love is dying and there is nothing we can do. we see this a lot within medical issue and sometimes even mental health. One of the hardest thing to experience is watching someone you love go and there is nothing you can do. This can be within just watching someone die or even being told how much time they get to live.
How I Could Use This…..
One) I was thinking that I could pull real chain through the canvas or what ever I decide to paint on. This means I would have the painting behind and the real chain draped across the painting and in it and could also be hanging onto the floor.
Two) I could paint on the chains around the image I paint and make it look 3D but just paint it wrapped around the images on the canvas or the material that I use to paint onto.
