This is a project I did for Two Dimensional Design class at Georgia State. The piece is an exploration of our visual understanding of texture, actual and implied. Implied meaning "texture created by the visual implications of objects represented in a 2 dimensional format." For example, not only do you get the sense of the actual texture of the soft wood corks, but an implied rough texture of the pile of strewn corks (bottom right). Another example could be the text on the wine bottle; in actuality, the text is very smooth, but it lends itself to texture through the shapes of the characters in positive and negative space.
I think this is a successful piece. I love the complementary colors of red and green. And who knew so many textures could be gathered together around a wine theme? Plus, this would look great in any kitchen!
