GOYA Friday - The Human Pixel Project

For this week's GOYA, I am showing the final results of my participation in The Human Pixel Project. You can check out the overall goals and information at the web site, but to sum up, each participating artist gets 10 2x2 inch pieces of wood and are asked to alter them any way they see fit, so long as the finished squares represent one or all of the color swatches listed on the site. I chose to make one of each color for some diversity. Once the "pixels' are gathered, they will be used to make larger pictures.

This project was a lot of fun, but quite challenging because of the small size. My pixels are made with oil paint, sharpies, and torn photos and paper. The gray pixel is actually acrylic because I realized after starting that I didn't have any black oil paint, only a black oil stick... which didn't work very well for gray. Who doesn't have black paint? Ugh. Anyway, I think it all turned out ok, and am happy to have participated. Once these are completely dry, I'll ship them in to Human Pixel headquaters and see what becomes of them.

'ello Erin,

The 2 in the middle are my favorite. I'm curious to learn the story behind "+" and "-" being bad but together good...?

At any rate, nice work!
