Just over three weeks to go till opening night and degree show meetings are in full swing. Studios and the art block are buzzing with activity! Video installations are being edited, performance pieces are being planned, materials are being ordered, sculptures are being constructed and floor plans are well under way!
This, week I’ve been continuing with the development of my work, focusing particularly on the construction and painting of the boards. Since the start of the year, my work has found a place somewhere between installation, collage and painting. Elements of all can be found in the work.
The aim was to mix contemporary colours which you would find in the pages of magazines, on catwalks and in retail. As a response to the subject matter surrounding body image, I wanted the natural material of the wood to be cut into harsh shapes and painted a flat colour.
