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.
This video seems to support my work quite well, with the idea of so many beliefs all about one thing - that’s what I want my work to represent, so many beliefs in one.
Why Are We Here 100 is an idea for future artwork that I am currently attempting to compile research/information/the body of the work for.
My current aim is to collect 100 honest replies to the always relevant question “Why Are We Here?” All replies will be anonymous and will be used to create…
Before setting up for the degree show I had come to terms with the fact that a few spanners would be thrown into the works throughout the process, and I had the mentality that I would simply use these obstacles as learning curves. That’s exactly what I did when this piece fell off of the wall (purely because I was drilling into the unsteady wall next to it, without taking it off) - I stared at it momentarily, accessing the damage and wanting to cry, and then I moved on with one less cube to hang … Since then nothing else has broken (touch wood), as I thankfully learnt from my mistake and I have taken one other block from the final selection I will be showing as I feel it now works better with 12 rather than 13.
You love and you learn I guess.
