My Exhibition Piece: Celestial Spheres

This post is about my individual exhibition piece, a performance/installation called “Celestial Spheres.” For more information on our exhibition as a whole, click here. Shown above is the performance itself. Originally, this piece was planned to be an installation, to simply be left on display on loop. However, the projector I was using was also…

Autumn Week 5: Maud’s Cabinet of Wonders

This post is about the week 5 exhibition, “Maud’s Cabinet of Wonders,” by our studio group a.k.a. “The Wonder Collective.” For more info about my individual piece, click here. This exhibition was a result of quick thinking, teamwork, and thinking outside the box. It had to be pulled together very quickly, and we had to…

Autumn Week 5: Exhibition – The Making Of

Week 5 would see us complete our first exhibition. We knew from the start that it was scheduled for week 5, however because we had been so busy it really had crept up on us, and the deadline seemed very sudden. This was no problem, however – in fact it only motivated us more to…

Autumn Week 4: Pt. 2 – “To Fall Asleep”

So, the animation for this week’s piece was complete. With the deadline approaching, I had just a few days to create the accompanying painting and a soundtrack. With the painting, I was using phosphorescent paint, which I had never used before. I was keen for the painting to be as brightly coloured as possible, because…

Week 2 had been a break from the norm, as our studio group all took part in a collaborative performance piece rather than continuing with our separate practices. It got…

Autumn Week 2: Texts

This week we collaborated on a very special artwork. Six of us in our studio group were split into three pairs, and within each pair everyone wrote a creative piece of text wholly inspired by the other person. Each person then recited the text wrote for them in an art performance. The reader was positioned…

Autumn Week 1: Motions

Back to the Studio! This post is about my first installed art piece of the year. With term beginning after three months away from the studio, I was eager to investigate the part 3 studio space and start considering how to respond to it artistically. Overview My artwork this week is called “Motions”, which can…

Summer 2018: Abstract Expressionist Painting

My practice this summer has been inspired in part by the surrealist idea that art should come from the unconscious mind. I had this idea in mind when creating my abstract animation work, and the idea continues in a painting I’ve completed… Overview It is painted using acrylic. I’ve included a lot of primary colour,…
