Process – Final Piece – ‘There is no such thing as a line in nature’

Fine Art

Using Lines to Interpret Nature

Following on from my proposal I have created a final piece for this project.

I decided to focus mainly on trees rather than landscapes.

This is my final outcome, using images which i have previously taken i have created a three piece image. Using acetate i have taken sections of one image and created a well layered piece. Whilst setting up my studies i came across a problem with keeping them upright, after a few minuets i solved my problem by making my structure more steady with more wire.

Here are a few more images of other studies i created using this method:

I am really pleased with the outcome and wish to develop this way of work in other projects.

Process – New Project Idea

Fine Art

Lines

Brief

Identify an idea you want to explore and think about the working process you want to use.

My Proposal 

‘There is no such thing as a line in nature’

For this project I am going to focus on looking at trees and there varying forms, I will be experimenting different methods and techniques to show these differences. I took my inspiration from looking at Peter Doig and Michael Raedecker, they both look at landscapes and trees but interpret them in completely different ways, Doig creates beautiful oil paintings which I really enjoy looking at as they are appear abstract. Readecker uses acrylic, which he sews into to give the paintings more depth and texture, I really want to try this technique into some of my studies I will be making to see the effect it can

 

To start my line project I will take my own photographs of trees and landscapes, which I will experiment with using different methods such as:

–       Using thread in different ways and onto different materials and fabrics.

–       Line drawings onto different materials.

–       Creating glue gun studies to see the effect it gives.

–       Pen drawings

I am hoping the outcome will be simple but elegant pieces, which show the different shapes, and forms trees create.  Whilst I make my line pieces I also want to see if I can highlight the light and dark areas within the structure of each tree.

Place – Final Piece: ‘Your body is a temple of the holy spirit’

Fine Art

Final Piece

Brief

You are required to make a body of work based on the ideas you develop from the starting point of place. You can interpret the word in any way you choose.

My Piece

‘Your Body is a temple of the holy spirit’

My whole project for ‘Place’ was based around the saying above which has been taken out of the bible.

I chose to draw two images which I thought looked old fashioned, which related really well to my idea. I began to fade the bottom of one image and the side of another to make it seem like it was disappearing.

I used a graphite pencil blended with a cotton bud to create my studies. I do like the outcome of this project as they are very soft and elegant. If i had more time to complete this project i would have created a series of drawing to build a collection of framed drawings.

Drawing Project – Day Two

Fine Art

Workshop

Brief

The second day of the workshop we were told to make a device which we can control to make pieces of work

My Piece

I had made three different divides which consisted of wheels on a axel which span in circles to build a series of images.

This was my first model which I only used one wheel to build up a piece with three different colours.

IMG-20131210-00675

My second model had one wheel on each end of the stick which created the same effect as the last image but i was able to produce a piece much quicker.

This is my final device which consisted of three wheels spread out on one stick. This created a different effect compared to the others which i really liked about it.

To extend my piece further away from my body i added a longer stick to the original one which made my piece much messier and abstract. I really like the outcome of this piece which I’m going to experiment deeper into this technique.

Drawing Workshop – Day One

Fine Art

Workshop

Brief 

We were asked to create a selection of pieces using a item that wouldn’t normally be used.

My Invention

Looking around the class room I decided to see what i can find to create pieces of art. I found a fork which could work to create textural pieces.

This is the out come of my pieces using a fork, i decided to use simple colours such as black and white to create each piece. Simply by scraping the paint i was able to create different effects and textures.

Place – Project Idea

Fine Art

‘The Body Is A Temple’

Brief

You are required to make a body of work based on the ideas you develop from the starting point of place. You can interpret the word in any way you choose.

My Idea

Using the word place I wanted to look at people and how the body is seen as a temple of the spirt. I want to create postcard style portraits of people from the the 1930’s – 40’s. With these portraits I will have part of the images  coming away to represent there spirit exciting the human body.

Place Project – Postcard

Fine Art

Postcard Collage

Brief

You are asked to use the postcard as a starting point for a visual exploration around notions of place. In one sense a postcard functions as a way of sending a message to a friend or loved one to communicate your experience of a place, or in another sense it is a way to consume a place or preserve your memory of a visit.

By using collage as a method of working, you are asked to transform the postcard you are given.

My Idea

I was given a Farnham Postcard to create my collage piece. With this i decided to fold the card into the shape of a shirt, this was to represent the person whom may be sending the card to another person.

Once everyone created a different piece using the postcards we were told to hold an exhibition in the outside studio. I wanted my piece pined to the wall towards to bottom, As my piece is small i wanted to viewer to have to bend down to see the detail of the piece.
