Home > Winners > #97809


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dandelion and Wishes

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wall Art Decor

INSPIRATION:
It has always been my concern to make an artwork which makes my audience contemplate besides creating beauty in art, to spark the idea of idealism (Utopia) in the audiences' mind in the modern world. Dandelion, which is an element of nature, symbolizes happiness for children and the best message of happiness for children is a world without war. The whole collection will be donated as a peace Wall Art to UNESCO on September 21 (The International Day of Peace) when the dandelions reach the number 195 (The number of the countries in the world).

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
My artwork is a mixture of the unique features of two arts, sculpture and painting, since it has the volume and dimension featured in statues as well as texture and color combinations which can be seen in paintings. Another important feature is the installation. The pieces are installed in a way to convey a suspension and floating feeling. The colors used are gray,white and gold. White, the color of dandelions, gray showing dimension and shades and gold reflecting the sun light.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The pieces can be installed in various ways to depict different ideas and concepts. Fasteners with 10 cm length are used to show dimension and light reflections better.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2019 in Tehran. It took each piece 24 hours to be totally dry, therefore the whole collection finished in January 2020. The whole project will have been finished by September 2020 to be donated to UNESCO.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Powdered pigments, paste pigments and ink colors are mixed with a ratio of one-to-two of resin hardener and epoxy resin and are poured to the silicon molds. Three layers of resin are used to have better shades and volume in the plates. After resin gets elastic (after about 6 hours), resin plates are taken out of molds (de-molded) and get formed and designed by hand to create desired shapes, sizes and depths. Therefore, each piece has a unique shape, depth and form.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The pieces are 20 cm, 30 cm, 40 cm and 50 cm in diameter. The size of the whole collection is varied depending on the number of pieces installed. "Dandelion and Wishes" is 3 m X 1.5 m.

TAGS:
Resin Art, Wall Art, Dandelion, Abstract Art, Resin, Deformed, UNESCO, Art For Peace

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The tools used are various Pigment Colors, Ink Pigments and Paste Pigments, Epoxy Resin, Hardener, Molds, Heat Gun and Torch. The applications and software used are Circle Cutter, InstaSize, Inshot and Painter.

CHALLENGE:
Changing the function of resin from flat paintings and trays to three dimensional artworks was the challenging part of my production process. Another challenge was the way I should install them to better convey the message I had in mind.

NAME:
MAHNAZ KARIMI

PROFILE:
Mahnaz Karimi is a contemporary and modern artist with two decades of successful experience in painting. She specializes in Resin Art, Acrylic Painting, Fluid Art and Glass Painting. She tries to depict her love of nature in her various artworks. Her world of artworks include feminine and masculine ideas and features and that is the reason for choosing red, blue and purple for her logo. Her artworks are primarily based upon pouring which means applying the paint by pouring rather than applying the paint with a brush. This sense of fluidity along with the unpredictable nature of resin gives her the opportunity to explore varied textures found in nature more realistically than any other medium.
