Re-Imagining Tangle Patterns in 3D

3-d wall art mounted artwork pattern design

I have been working with this new floral zentangle inspired design.

For my latest Drawing class assignment I attempted to re-imagine the pattern as a “3D drawing”, which was the focus of the assignment.

Above is the design drawn on foam board and cut out using an x-acto knife.  I mounted it on the wall slightly raised away from the wall (about 1 inch, using small pieces of foam board) so that you can see the shadows through the parts of the pattern I removed.  The piece is about 1.5 x 1.5 feet big.  I may paint it or colour it in the future, but won’t have time before it’s due.

Below is my second successful experiment with this pattern, drawn with permanent marker on a Styrofoam ball.  First I painted the ball with a few layers of white acrylic paint.

There were a few other attempts I made that did not turn out but I guess you don’t know until you try!  Just to give you an idea of what I was working from here is what the pattern looks like in it’s original 2D form:

Anyways I am working on about 5 other projects at once for my courses so I will have lots more to post in the future, so stay tuned!
