Artworks Turned into Art Objects
Understanding pieces of arts through details and creation

1. Discovery phase of pieces of art, especially paintings from European art or from your culture of origin. Here are a few examples for what we made of Vasarely's, Kandinsky's and Delaunay's  paintings :

2. You choose details which inspires you, reproduce them by drawing or printing on small pieces of wood or paper. Then, you will turn them into small objects by varnishing. 

3. By combining this varnishing technique with assembling techniques, you will create jewelry or other small decorative object. This is also a way to make art part of everyday life. 

And here are a few examples inspired by Islamic geometric art:

Of course, you don't have to copy anything. You can also create something completely new, inspired by something that you've seen. You can choose between different painting techniques to create your patterns:
