Trend House Inspired Artwork

It’s been while since posting anything so I thought I’d go a quick post on a small artwork project we completed recently. I was looking for something to hang in the staircase going downstairs and had always wanted to create a piece of art that was Trend House related. Looking though some newspaper archives the other day, I thought I could use the advert that appeared in the Calgary Herald as the foundation for the piece. The problem is that the only image I could  find was from a microfiched page of the paper so the resolution of the image was terrible, but in there lay the inspiration.

The original black & white had some coloured sections added to it, was blown up, and a halftone filter applied. The end result is an image that up close looks just like some random dots, but as you move away from it, resolves into the advert for the opening of the Calgary Trend House.
