Which came first?
DescriptionCreating tiles that will fit together in a tessellation is a simple process, but giving them meaning is a little more complicated.
It starts with specific geometric shapes. Parts are removed from one of its edges and added to another. The problem is that, in most cases, the new shape does not look like anything. So you have to imagine something from an amoeba.
In this artwork, I did the opposite. Created a tile with chickens laying eggs that could be assembled in a pattern. This makes things even more difficult.
So I started sketching and simplifying the chicken forms already bearing in mind that this should become a puzzle piece. After a lot of trial and error, I found a satisfactory solution.
Over the defined tiles, I was able to sketch the drawing details in order to refine shapes.
For each piece to be perceived separately, I used 3 different colors and put the puzzle pieces together.
So when it comes to tesselations, chickens and eggs come at the same time
