Gestalt

Michele Gort's avatar Michele Gort

My entry is currently composed of six puzzle pieces. Each puzzle piece is wired and set up to hang individually. They are each approximately 24'' x 36'' – 30'' x 40'', and will hang a few inches apart from one another. Therefore, to display they will need a wall length of about 10'. While I currently have six finished puzzle pieces, I would be both willing and excited to make more if necessary. The title for my entry will be "Gestalt," which literally means “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” because I am trying to demonstrate that even though we are all unique and beautifully created, when we are united we make a much more beautiful picture. I used a lot of layering and depth when I painted these piece some areas have transparent paint so you can see the layering underneath. This also reflects my view of humanity being composed of individuals who have many layers and depth to their character.
