I was looking at the final piece and it didn’t look stable and wasn’t very in the way the prints were mounted.
To make it stronger, I will mount the prints onto poly-board instead of cardboard strengthening the prints and will increase the lifetime of them
As mentioned in Sean’s feedback the projected photographs are a lot stronger than the screen prints. I agree with what has been said however, I will still submit the screen print version as I believe this meets the requirements of the brief as I have been able to bring a technique learnt during field into my outcome and also I have been able to bring my own practice into it.
- Make sure posts are a lot more critical than what they are especially the ones about artists.
- Research more artists other than the ones that are suggested by tutors or in workshops
- Post more regularly on my timeline
- Continue being playful with materials in work.
- Projection images are successful
- Find out what it is I want to do and say with my work.
- How do I tackle my subject on celebrity culture/ idolisation of heroes and also body goals?
- More extensive contextualisation should help strength my journal.
- 15min of fame – Andy Warhol
- House of America – Marc Evans
- Pedro Almodovar films
- Cindy Sherman
- Amalia Ulman.
I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE GOOD BOX! NEED TO BE IN EXCELLENT.
All of this will also relate to subject .
As the field module comes to an end we were asked to create a final outcome. Initially, I was at a stump, then I made this!
The idea of these projections was to play with the desired one has to become someone else. It creates this paint-like effect which is also rather strange looking.
From these projections, I wanted to bring 3D elements into the work by using paper. The ideas have been taken from the Shadow Play & Light is Colour Workshops.
Successful? I believe they are as using the layers gives the photograph dynamic and really makes the images pop. It also elaborates on the paint-like strokes on the faces.
Although these photographs were successful and I really enjoy them, I felt like they were sitting on the edge of field and were slightly tipping into subject. To push myself into field more I decided to bring more elements in from Light is Colour.
From that revelation, the true beauty came to life:
The use of screen print really highlighted the shadows and features that were in the original photograph. Colours were inspired by the colours that were in the photograph obviously I played on them and made them a lot more sickly, however, I still played with complementaries.
To create layers paper was folded so it would bounce back, a technique that is used in Pop-up books.
As some of the print work wasn’t confident enough I worked back into the prints. This created texture with direct correlation to the photographs.
