Tribute to the Grammar of Architectural Ornamentation

L Lee Ligocki's avatar L Lee Ligocki

"Tribute to Architectural Ornamentation" concept originated from drawings I created on transparent vellum in the 1960s. Conception of this piece was to create full color spectrum and stimulate a person's visual color perceptions with awareness of architectural ornamentation by randomly rearranging the four (4) independent drawings. This work consists of four (4) independent drawings; one red, one blue, one yellow, and one black. Each of the four (4) drawings are 48 inches by 66 inches (4 feet x 5.5 feet). The drawings were independently created without viewing previous drawings. The drawings are layered, become abstracted, and balanced in the elements and the principles of art. The relationship each drawing has to one another is that they are based on historical periods of architectural ornamentation. The black layer is Gothic, the yellow layer is Egyptian, the blue layer is Chinese, and the red layer is Italian Renaissance. The results create curiosity, exploration, and dialogue..
