The Demoiselles Revenge
This animation stands as a tribute to the women who dwelled in Picasso's shadow, underscoring the imperative message that art cannot be disentangled from the artists themselves. As the narrative unfolds, these women in famous Picasso paintings come to life, encountering a gallery of Picasso's renowned works while uncovering thought-provoking revelations.
Puppets and Assets
To make the puppets of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, I would try to use as many of the body parts that were visible in the original painting and copy them to the characters with missing body parts.
With the history of the painting and Picasso's intentions of painting these women as primitive and savage, the women have disproportionate and disjointed body parts, as well as menacing and unsettling facial features or masks.
