Interlude: The Hand of Yves Klein

Today inspired by the hand of Yves Klein I created a small artpiece using all the hands of the Digital Arts Class.

Yves Klein in his blue period created his own colour blue 'International Klein Blue 79'; ' IKB 79 was one of nearly two hundred blue monochrome paintings Yves Klein made during his short life. He began making monochromes in 1947, considering them to be a way of rejecting the idea of representation in painting and therefore of attaining creative freedom. ' (Tate 2019)

I though this image with his hand in colour with the black and white portrait really exemplified Klein and his work and the images I have created here I hope is a small homage to the artist!
