Lorraine Loots 微型水彩:365天,送給螞蟻的365張明信片

堅硬的石頭不勝點水,一條不起眼的裂縫就能毀掉摩天大樓,這就是微小的力量,只可惜很多時候,我們總習慣把眼光望向雄偉壯觀。
這是南非開普敦藝術家Lorraine Loots的微型水彩系列,取名為 《365 Postcards for Ants》(365張送給螞蟻的明信片)。
從2013年1月1日開始,她便堅持每天一幅微型畫,將周遭的那些人與物,還有好風光繪進畫紙之中,筆觸精緻細膩、色彩和諧淡雅,圖樣比一枚硬幣還小,有的人可能需要用放大鏡才能看得清其中的細節,不過這微小的創作卻有著螞蟻的強大力量,能夠安撫觀者浮躁的心,將目光聚焦,讓人陷入、沉浸到畫面之中。
轉眼間,2014年悄然到來,因為實在不捨為這特殊的藝術創作畫上句號,所以Lorraine決定將每日一作的挑戰繼續下去。由於開普敦被選為2014 世界設計之都,因此今年的創作內容將圍繞於開普敦,如果各位喜歡,可以登入她的網站預訂某一天的畫作,那天畫什麼題材還可以由買家自定哦!文末處有Gareth Pon攜手Lorraine製作的短片,感興趣的fans記得看哦!
