The backstory is that I signed up to volunteer to decorate some DIY ornaments for Onyx Fine Arts gallery in Pacific Place Mall (Seattle, WA). While making these ornaments, i got inspired to create an even more complex display of work. The orignal idea is Xmas Revolution. Though, as it is coming to life, I am not sure if Xmas is really apart of it, at all.
I spent a week or two, burning and carving 24 faces of my heroes into 24 wooden medallions. The characters I chose were individuals who I defined as being Freedom Fighters.
After i completed each one, I added my artist seal and signature at the back.
I felt like the dynamics of this work started to change when I began to hang each item on the tree. It occurred to me that I could make this visual even more meaningful if the type of tree was changed.
And thus, it no longer was about restructuring xmas, at all.
I have decided to move on to the next stage in creating this exhibit. But with that said, i think i will continue to explore different types of trees that these medallions can hang off of.
