WCAAD (17-year-old) student Lucy Liu’s illustration demonstrate experimentation as she takes on a challenge in attempting to merge a 2D painting and a 3D construct. As discussed in class Lucy admired other student works that were grand and sculptural. Lucy wanted to shift her more conservative illustrations into something intimate and fun. As she researched and thought about material. She decided on a more modest scale and playful experience for viewers while breaking conventions of a traditional painting. This multi-dimensional art focuses on illusion, space, material and texture among other elements and principles of art and design.
