Le Sacre du Printemps (the Rite of Spring) III

Rite Of Spring III. Third in the series of works based in the work of Stravinski. They were done for Blackstack Studio and on show during the Kilkenny Arts Festival

Le Sacre du Printempts was a project for Blackstack Studio Exhibition during Kilkenny Arts Festival 2014. All members of the studio were to produce work based of fairytales.
My first impulses were to try and deconstruct Grimm's Tales into screenprint shapes; but I felt it would fall really far away from where my illustration was at that moment. I needed something more lyrical. And that's when I thought of Stravinski's Rite Of Spring. It also appealed to me its infamous opening nights and the fact that it is one of the first pieces of Morden Music, if not the first one.
