My first idea is to use Pawel Kuczynki’s method of using satire to show issues that we face in today’s society. I want to display the ongoing debate about “chem/contrails” aka the white lines in the sky. I want to either do a painting using gouache and it shows a kid playing tic-tac-toe in the air. I would paint this on stonehenge paper in not so big dimensions such as 12×18. My other idea with this proposal is to use photography and editing, or gouache as first stated, still in a satirical aspect, of people looking at the sky playing the typical “make pictures out of clouds” game, and one pointing with a thought cloud saying “I don’t know…perpendicular” lines.
My second idea is to use Miya Bailey’s depictions of the black woman and spirituality/divinity in a painting on stonehenge paper using inkwash. I would like this picture to be fairly big such as 18×24 being that it represents power. I plan to make it black and white and show her perhaps playing with planets creating the concept that she “has the world in her hands.”
My third idea will once again use Miya Bailey’s depictions of black women and how he admires the body, tattoos, and Egyptian symbols through means of photography and editing. I will have this post printed in a larger scale (18×24), in most likely black and white. I will photograph a woman in different poses and layer the picture together as one. With this idea I also thought of drawing out the associated form of an African woman (big afro and curves) in large scale, and then fill the space with magazine cut outs of black women or statements relevant to make up her body. Maybe have darker pictures for her hair.
