A friend was putting on an art show at her church, and needed a promotional post card. The title/theme of this art show was "re:_____. Exploring a beautiful breakdown and renewal," which was intended to have both religious significance, and relate to cultural happenings at large with a new year and a new president. So in beginning the brainstorming process, I considered numerous visuals to convey this: the face/vase gestalt illustration, a stock chart, the recycling symbol, plants sprouting, broken masks, broken bones, and also all-type approaches.
Once I went online to look for images though, things started to come together as I found some very striking broken bone images that were perfect to communicate the idea of brokenness in the present--but healing in the future.
