have i made it yet?

Online sketchbook - Work journal - and research folder ... now, let me work.

So, here’s where inspiration hit me today … Right in the teeth! You know me, cover something in gold and I think it’s beautiful.

So, I literally have no idea what I am doing right now - with my life, with my art, with anything. I am completely lost. So, I am just going to try to keep making in hopes that I will eventually find my way out.

Things might seem a little random, but I am just going to strike whenever inspiration hits me.

I have chosen to take inspiration from the work I was producing at university and dive right back into art. Combining different concepts of my older work - specifically focussed around the use of line, and the cut-outs from my embossings - I am aiming to work on a series of layered cutouts created from book pages.

words— their weight, their power

7knotwind:

All that glitters is not gold-

Often have you heard that told.
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold.
Gilded tombs do worms infold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgment old,
Your answer had not been enscrolled.
Fare you well, your suit is cold.
― William Shakespeare

New inspiration for work.

What’s Next?

So, the work for my degree show is all done and dusted - it’s even been taken down no, in fact. However, obviously I am not going to stop creating work that easily, I have decided to move on a little from Elysian as a project - I feel as though it could be continued and developed, but I need some time in between now and then fore that to happen. Instead I have begun looking to nature for my inspiration, focussing heavily on the subtle lines and curves found in many different forms within nature, from petals and leaves to crashed waves and sea-foam, I hope to use this organic nature to create new, minimal, plaster sculptures.
