Edgar Brandt's moly ready to go to Slovakia!





My interpretation of Edgar Brandt's style is laden with heavy black lines and thick textures underneath. My aim was to create a stylistic feature which would interwove my style with his. In the back pocket of my moly, you will find little cards with Brandt's lamp (just like the one you can see glued to the back of my moly's cover). They are for you guys. I have put in the pocket enough cards for each artist in this exchange. Take care.

a very nice one - but also difficult (for me, at least)! needs to think how to follow...
i like your graphic interpretation of his works

Thanks. Yes, I went for graphic interpretation with a twist. The ornaments were cut out of blackpaper. Brandt's work has always reminded me of Shadow Play Theatre. So I decided to go along these lines and create that rich texture underneath the cut-out black ornament.

Very cool. I feel like I really need to get to know many of these artists a LOT better before I jump in. This group is keeping me on my toes.
