I bumped into this artist's blog ,Julia Ibbini, by chance, and oh was I IMPRESSED! This painting particularly kept on catching my attention as I was going through the portfolio. Full of thoughts, mixed feelings and plenty of roller coasters, something of how life and memories join together.
Very interesting work indeed.
Nadine Spencer’s illuminated city made up from nearly 800 laser-cut buildings captured our eye and attention! A World of Yesterday’s Tomorrows, is Nadine's final project while at Nottingham Trent University.
"The building shapes are all laser cut. I started with illustrations, put them through a computer process to make the laser-files, the cut them from mountboard that I had screen printed pigments onto. I had about 50 building templates overall and cut nearly 800 buildings to make the piece. The entire model breaks up into 7 segments and the wooden stand inside collapses so that I can transport it. So as you can imagine, it took real logistical thinking, engineering and a lot of maths to make which was a challenge, but came with immense gratification." Nadine Spencer
