Tony Mott - transformation 1
Madonna Transformation 1
This exciting project was based around paintings in the National Gallery. The idea was to examine the pictoral construction of images from different time periods, in particular before and after 1500. Using that analysis to reconstruct the image in a more analytical form. Ultimately, resulting in a transformed piece of art based off the original, often in 3D.
I worked on 4 pieces, but the one that I took through to a final work was this one. It is The Aldobrandini Madonna, by Titian from about 1532. The picture is of the baby Jesus with The Virgin. Saint Catherine is holding the baby while a young John the Baptist looks on.. The John the baptist is wrapped in camel skin and carrying his traditional reed cross.
