This image went into my artwork inspiration file from the moment I first saw it in the FLOR catalog. It’s cool, unusual, wordy, and most importantly (since I like to make all of the artwork in my apt) DIY! The question is, what section of the dictionary to choose? Quite literally, you get to choose the meaning of your art.
The brilliant set decorator at FLOR (seriously, you do a great job making me want almost everything in the catalog) chose to go with “betray” as the central word. For my own apt I’m thinking something I bit happier.
Alternative ideas: use a thesaurus, foreign dictionary, design or fashion encyclopedia.
I’ll post my finished product when I decide what words to use. In the meantime, here are a few shots from my very old thesaurus to give you some idea of where I’m leaning.
