Art: Goggles

Art: Goggles

 

How different is it creating a work of art on something like these goggles from a standard 2D canvas? It’s very different. But it elicits so much freedom. Having to consider a piece in three dimensional form is a welcome challenge for me. I love that the decision of how much space the piece is going to occupy is in my hands. I knew right away I wanted to use the goggles as a foundation from which I could build something bigger, something that caused the original given object to take on a whole new purpose.

 

What was the most memorable piece you have worked on? I just recently released a pair of sunglasses I designed with Oakley, and the process was remarkable. I painted 15-20 large pieces on canvas and pooled together ideas from the lot of them to create the design for the sunglasses. Between meetings with the design team, touring the factory and considering every last element, color and line that would make the final design, it was an amazing project that I absolutely loved.

 

Where can we find your work? My work has most recently been featured in the album art of my latest record, Gravity Happens, and on my signature Oakley Beckon sunglass and packaging. I am in the process of building a portfolio and online gallery of my paintings, which will be viewable on www.katevoegele.com. You can find all my music there, as well as on iTunes.
