Portrait of Karmina Šilec, conducter of Carmina Slovenica
In next issue of Mladina, rubric Striptiz we have Karmina Šilec, conducter of Carmina Slovenica concert choir. First and second idea were not feasible, so in a process of simplification I came up with the third idea, to make a line of a profile of her face as a landscape above the sky. I wanted that clouds would be a symbol of sound. It didn’t worked, because I had too much stuff to avoid and clouds lost their cumulus shape because of altocumulus clouds. I wanted to make quit picture, but I had to avoid poles, cranes, etc. I gave up. I decided that if I can not avoid them, I’ll include them in the picture. I wanted to make a visual tension between sound and silence and somehow the picture above works.
