The Bad Mood Boards…N°1

Since 4 months I started to make mood boards, very bad mood boards.

I create a bad mood board every new moon, because I don’t like to start on the first of the month, I could see that I was always behind on my work, my ideas, which is depressing. So I thought that maybe following the new moon to start my work could offer more flexibility…Here is the very first bad mood board made with my collections of exhibition and magazine images, in bulk there are images from Tarkovsky’s films, mourning art objects, a black aluminium sheet…I complete it with its associated colour palette and a work by Odilon Redon.
