The question that guided my sustained investigation was, "How can I create abstract compositions using shapes, colors, and space observed in nature?" My ultimate goal was to abstract the systematic elements of nature and present them as playful and colorful compositions.
The images in the gallery below are the 10 images I created for the sustained investigation portion of the AP 2-D Art and Design portfolio exam. Some images are works, while others are sketchbook processes used to develop the following work(s). I received a score of 5 for the portfolio exam.
