Jane Goodall by erikfoxjackson Jane Goodall by erikfoxjackson
"Jane Goodall" - Adobe Illustrator

This is part of a series I did for my Art Ed master's show. The series was of large digitally printed 36" x 54" canvases.

The idea was to play on a bunch of ideas from art history, starting with Pop Art's use of faces of modern icons - but instead I chose icons who also had something to offer to the world of education and would hopefully have more than "5 seconds of fame". The disembodied heads are a play on the term "Talking Head", which I used to represent their public advocacy of their chosen discipline. I used the techniques of Chuck Close to create a stippled artwork that would be more in the vein of a digital Seurat. The points used are supposed to be a simulacrum for digital print and display's composition of dots to create complex images. From a distance the large canvases look photographic but at as the viewer closed in on the artwork they can see the image is composed of intricate colors and varied dot work.
