About Ken Omom
My work has been dealing with found objects and adding drawings in my work is related with the relationship between space and how my audience view the drawing with 3D objects, by adding some geometrical shapes and organic shapes, the drawing always related to the objects and illusion.
Illusion works well in my work by use light and shadow to work with the drawings and this makes my work stand out and make it great, by using my previous sketches and drawings before, I make any work the idea has to come to my mind and then work on them and then develop the drawing to work well with the 3D objects.
In my work lines run from end to end and then erasing the lines and then re-drawing the lines again this creates a layer of drawing like what is normally found in paintings, by not adding colour and just adding black colour to match the lines but adding a light not dark black.
Making my work simple but is something that is sometimes hard to achieve because in my work I want the viewers to see something simple and not complicated by playing with balance, and defying gravity and making something heavy balanced by a thin or to balance juts by its own weight.
This work I have created will be something simple and complicates to the viewer but they will be able to look at the work and take part in the making and this is what I have tried and making the work and drawing work in one harmony, the drawing that works well with the space and the objects that have been brought together to create the work.
Drawing in my work is works well and makes the audience try to avoid the objects and look at the drawings and this is something that I have try to do, the objects in my work comes to life when the viewer look at them and when the support the drawings and the objects supports the drawings.
By using found objects in my work and creating drawings that makes the viewer ask questions and the work is always open for interpretation, and criticism by the viewer in this work the viewer brings something and at the sometime taking something out of the work.
