On days 27-30 of #ArtEveryDayMonth, to finish out the British-rock theme I created this piece inspired by Ozzy Osbourne’s song “Iron Man.”
I must confess I never heard the Ozzy version until now. I heard the version by The Cardigans around the same time I was listening to Oasis, which would have been the mid-to-late 90s. Both versions are awesome.
It’s a great tune that makes you wonder about vengeance and who has a right to it.
Since iron is usually black but rusts to a reddish-orange color, those were the primary colors I used, with various blues for contrast. The overall image is nonobjective, but you can almost make out a landscape or even a face. My goal was to translate the song “Iron Man” into a visual.
I think I’ve done that.
Video below. (And no, it doesn’t have the actual song because of copyright stuff, even though it is a tribute.)
After all these dark paintings this month, I’m ready to do something bright now.
