Pattern_02 of the three arrowheads.
P.S. I watch green arrow while working.
Stephen Amell is pretty amazing and distracting inspiration.
From Pattern on a paper to the paper cutting.
Researching for a different project, i came arrow ancient arrows and arrowheads. Arrows, when they were used, marked a certain army or a cavalry or an individual. Their make and carvings needed to be specific. It was almost like a visual identity, according to what i have perceived. Well, weapons have always intrigued me and arrows and swords in general. Weapons of valor, i call them.
I used my love for symmetry to try and depict the beauty of a well carved arrowhead. Pattern i have used are mixed celtic and geometric based. And they a inspired form existing patterns. I absolutely enjoyed working on this. I plan to try a 3D version of these soon.
This is the first of the 3 patterns.
Been looking through some architecture for reference, as symmetry presides most architecture. Islamic architecture has some beautiful symmetric and geometric pattern which run through the walls and the ceiling and marbled floors. The star shape is a prominent emblem used.
I tried out one such pattern, tried to capture an essence of the architecture.
Carving the Grid.
( Series of paper carvings)
I have taken up a new project in paper cutting.
It deals with geometric patterns, symmetrical patterns, grids – hence the name. Geometric and symmetric patterns have always imparted a sense of balance and stability and calmness. And so this endeavor is putting two things i like alot grids and papercutting together.
If you see the actually go hand in hand.
