Welcome to another animated art making of video entry. This week, I’m going to show you the process behing another piece from my “Psychoclimatic conditions” series: Cyclolysis Metamorphica.
Cyclolysis ( \ sīˈkläləsə̇s \)
1. (meteorology) The weakening or termination of a cyclonic circulation in the atmosphere.
1. (geology) Changing into a new form and structure by very great heat and pressure.
“Psychoclimatic conditions” is a series where I establish a parallelism between weather phenomena and psychological definitions, conditions and illnesses. To do so, I have been studying for over a year meteorology and psychology to create these visual metaphors.
For the aesthetics of the series, I wanted to focus it in portraits with as-much-as-possible neutral expressions from the model so I could depict the feeling using color, composition and texture. It would be too easy to rely the emotion of the final artwork to fall just in human expression. I wanted to explore how to generate sensations using other ways. For that reason, it organically took a more abstract outcome. I was also a bit tired on working on realism only and I wanted to bring back some aesthetics I used to work on when I was younger and was experimenting with traditional medias, mixing different painting styles. It’s something I had been craving to do for years and I considered this was the perfect project to bring them back.
