This artwork inspired by the movie and the simplicity of the poster, La La Land. This was a nice and inspiring movie for me. The story seems taken from the moments that happened around us. That’s why I would like to recreate the movie poster using paper cutting and also painting. For this artwork, I am trying to combine with lighting. Using backlight method using LED, I would like to see the effect of lighting to papercut+painting artwork.
The conclusion of the experiment of making papercut + painting and also add lighting seems not working at this time. It’s good, but I feel there are a lot of room to improve the result. For example, the thickness of the paper is too thick. Using 200gsm paper seems too thick and the result is the light cannot penetrate the paper. The other thing is by using some painting to paper, it also make the light cannot penetrate and distributed by the paper. The method of painting can be change, should apply thin paint for each layer. Or perhaps change from poster painting into watercolor painting. Or maybe we can use colored paper as the layers. So, there are many things that can be improved by this experiment. Maybe next time the result of combining lighting will give the better result.
