Black and Blue
I am intrigued by the gilding of Byzantine Art and the disguised symbolism of the Renaissance period. This piece is titled Black and Blue because it represents the aftermath of stressful or trying situations. In Byzantine Art, gold backgrounds symbolize a heavenly realm, and blue in many Renaissance paintings symbolizes purity. I chose three panels to to represent the holy trinity, tying into the theme of a holy realm gone wrong. I gave the gold a weathered effect and used the darkest hue of blue, mixed with black, to show the reverse.
