Assessment 704 practical work
I was pleased with the work that I brought to the final assessment, having felt somewhat unsatisfied with work in the end of year show before the Easter Break. I have been able to bring the slides to a place where they are becoming more successful, I had new paintings and the triptych had been replaced with the wire figure. I feel I have come to a place where I have lots of work to carry me into the final year.
It was very good to work on the wire figure and even though the material of chicken wire is problematic there is a fragility and transience that I like about the piece. I like that I can mould it around my body and the performative nature of doing it. I will now need to investigate other materials and see what works as a surface with the projections hoping to retain a transparency and fragility.
Just beginning this project I have found that women are telling me their stories and I hope to investigate a way to incorporate these possibly within the surface of the sculpted figure.
It will be good to work towards a body of work that has come out of these beginnings.
I presented the work and was much more confident about the drawings and paintings. I was pleased with Anya’s and Tabatha’s responses to the work. It was good to be able to use the space to put the work especially to see the wire figure in a clear space.
