Remember the Be Part of the Art contest? Nice to meet you, Nancy from Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico – you won! There’s a language barrier between Nancy and I, and my friend David at Meaning-Full is our translator and go-between. David has been amazing, but connecting and sorting things out has been slow. Thus the winning piece that was to be presented at the Queen West Art Crawl over a week ago has not yet been created, BUT: I now have the images from Nancy needed to begin, so away we go. Next up: finding models for her predators! I will keep you up to date with pictures of the process as we go. Here is the translation of her winning submission:
I’m a penguin. A penguin that walks miles and miles to get to what passionate her. Surrounded by predatory birds waiting for her to make a mistake. A penguin that moves her wings over and over again because her dream is to fly.
A pretty tense image, no? I have ideas… This could look very cool. Stay tuned.
