Jessica Hannigan : After Party

Exploration

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This series was created for a personal thesis in my last year of school at Sheridan College. My goal was to explore how to illustrate a room in a way that defies technical perspective and opens up the mind to new ways to perceiving 4 walls of a space as a room. They depict the energy left behind in a room after its occupants have stepped out, and the stories that are told through the debris.

How was the illustration used:
This series will be used in my portfolio.

How did you make this work:
When creating these pieces, I started with loose shapes of colour and pattern to achieve a satisfying composition, and used them as guides for the final pieces. This process helped change my viewpoint when I was going about making the rooms, and added to the abstract and flat nature I was trying to achieve. I added some of these studies as little paintings on the walls of the rooms.
