Subtraction is an odd word to illustrate, especially while living in a culture where “more” is considered better and I see daily how that’s taken over the top! Maybe taking away is an answer, not a punishment.
My thoughts on Illustration Friday’s word, “subtract” led me to the image of a Geisha, where I subtracted the background, to make you more conscious of the individual. The simplicity of beauty is evident, but a paradox, in the way I’m using it, since Geishas, wear many added layers of clothing.
So in this image, you can think about the addition of many garments or the subtraction of environment. There’s a lot to ponder in a paradox…or not!
Whether you subtract from life or add to life, it is the living that must be done. Happy Week…Peace.
