Coming to the end of the second year of the MA it’s is time to reflect on my personal development as an artist.
In my DPD writen in May I hoped to have built a rigorous practice around the ideas of birth, motherhood and memory. I was pursuing the idea of creating a “bricolage of memory”. What has come out of the work has been a more focused enquiry into birth.
I also wished to make connections outside of the University.
As I progressed through this year I have begun a focused practice investigating birth. I want to improve my methods of making and refinement. I will work hard to remain focused on birth alone.
I have over the last year begun to make good connections to the arts in North Devon. I have curated an exhibition for Art For Life at Musgrove Hospital and have made better connections to North Devon Arts, I was there opening exhibition in there new collaborative space 20 Joy Street, Barnstaple.
I would like to make stronger connections to the public through investigating the stories around birth. I have approached some of my students in this respect and they seem quite keen to get involved.
It is good to see that being on the MA has clearly enabled me to find my own voice and I wish to continue to find that voice across the various outcomes within my own practice as an artist.
