If you've been following me on Instagram for a while now, you know I have a soft spot for bright pastel-hued creations: I find they make amazing accent pieces or centerpieces for any room! Plus, my customers often comment on how much these creations brighten up their space...
As most creators, I create for myself first and foremost, but I can't be TOTALLY impervious to my customers' wishes... Right? :)
While I LOVE pastel-hued pieces, due to my creative process, preserving the integrity of these vivid colors can be quite challenging: any misstep, and it will turn the mixture to mud. Therefore, I need to be extra careful when manipulating my materials if I want it to organize exactly the way I picture it in mind instead of turning a gray-ish hue of brown!
It all started with the idea of deconstructing a rainbow. In fact, the working title of this piece going into the studio was "Deconstructed Rainbow". But, the linguist in me thought it might be a bit too descriptive a title. So, I decided to go for a consonance (repetitive sounds produced by consonants within a phrase) exemplified in the repeated R's in A Broken Rainbow Rises. The repetition gives it a heavy rhythm that is quite fitting for this piece.
The idea behind the composition for "A Broken Rainbow Rises" was to take the seven colors that make up a rainbow and break them down while organizing them in an arch form - akin go the way a rainbow appears in the sky! But, instead of having a regular stratified transition from red to bright yellow to darker hues of indigo and violet, I tried to compartmentalize the colors in an abrupt manner and have them clash, or even compete together in an unruly tango. Usually, rainbows self-organize as a seamless unit where seven linear colors appear side-by-side in a linear fashion — the intent behind this piece was really to chip away at the rainbow as you know it, and rebuild it in a completely novel way.
