I really enjoyed the George Ferrandi Lunchtime Lecture today at school. It was really interesting to learn about her thought process with a piece and what some of her ideas were about art/ life. I really liked what she said about making mistakes or coming across problems. She said that she likes to celebrate and highlight the mistakes rather than hide them away. I feel like this idea could really help me with my work and my process. I tend to get caught up in mistakes I make in a piece and rather than building on them and learning i tend to focus and attach on to all the negative. I really started to wonder about her thought process. It seemed like her works were so different in subject/ medium. Most artist seem to focus on a certain style and medium and then advance in that but she seemed to have a variety. I wonder why she chooses to work like this and if it's a conscious choice to make something completely different from the last. I liked something she said later in the show about noticing little detail and finding ways to replicate that. I think i could definitely work on looking at and for the little details in the work and find ways to emphasize or create more from them.
Snowpocalypse 2k15 has struck, and so did artpocalypse. So lots has changed since my last update. I finished the project Monday, and absolutely hated what i ended up doing to it.After adding the bubbles i melted more crayon, then i added more tissue paper and a final paint detail. I was really unhappy with the way the last couple steps turned out. So it's a good thing that the canvases came in a pack of two because i decided to completely restart. I reflected back on the old one and figured out what stage i didnt like, and remade the steps before that. So, here's my place project pt. 2, with the place simply being joy and what that looks/ feels like for me. The second process includes, A layer of glitter paint, crayon, layer of paint, tissue paper, 2nd tissue, paint detailing, and metallic paint.
Hasan Kale paints his works on a microscopic scale. He focuses on painting on things that we see everyday, things which are commonly ignored. His work showcases extreme detailing in small spaces. I really like how his work is so intricate. It's powerful to see something so precises and exact in such a small area.
Planned a couple nights... Then I started and almost finished place project. My place is kindergarten classroom/ the joy from that. My materials are inspired by what could be found in a kindergarten art room. So far i like what i've done. Almost there! A layer of glitter paint, crayon, paint, tissue paper, pipecleaner, packing bubbles, paint.
