Playing with Patterns While Speaking to the Masters

Posted on February 24 2020

As I design patterns I explore ways that they can be used and looked at in different ways to investigate their effect with new eyes. Recently I've been wrapping sculptures from old master artists that have a great and everlasting influence on me.

Their elegance, prestige, royalty and power in their works evokes a feeling I push through my own art and design.

Most of the work takes advantage of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's large library of images being in the public domain.

"The Met Makes Its Images of Public-Domain Artworks Freely Available through New Open Access Policy"

Explore more than 406,000 hi-res images of public-domain works from the The Met collection, all of which can be downloaded, shared, and remixed without restriction.
