My final piece is about being strong.
I have tried to illustrate the feeling of staying strong in this mixed media piece. The dragonfly breaking free from a cage as the chaos stays below is made from a glue gun.
I took the main photo then printed it and pasted onto canvas. I used layering techniques to add an effect to the background. I made the cage, the word life and several other pieces using a glue gun.
I mixed gold, blue and rose paints to get an ancient look.
I wanted the skills i have studied to show in my work but also to tell a story of a struggle.
Although i struggled i stood tall and kept going like a dragonfly in the wind.
