Artist Research-informing my practical ideas and developing my artworks/designs

The food for thought unit was based on artist research, learning about the different art movements across history, gallery visits, retrieving primary and secondary information and creating transcription pieces… All are which written about in previous blog posts, here are some photos from this unit

My last practical task done for this unit, I set a mini project for myself which was to do a mini response to one of Elleri Mills is pieces. Which my eyes were instantly drawn to. With Elleri Mills is work it was based on landscapes in India, so for my piece I decided to base it off a photograph of a landscape I took back in September when i was on holiday in Cyprus. Which is shown below

For my piece I decided to focus on colour and the use of different kind of stitching instead of getting an accurate landscape. I hand dyed the fabric which I really enjoyed doing and I really let myself go in this mini project I did. Here is the finished result

And to close up this unit we had to write a comparison of two artworks of are choice: I decided to choose the Woman at the Window do to the extensive research I had previously done and the Weeping Woman also by Picasso. I decided to go for both pieces by Pablo Picasso because I knew there was plenty of information about Picasso and the pieces online. Weeping Woman 1937 by Pablo Picasso 1881-1973After researching the weeping woman I was amazed at how one pieces of art had so much background and story to it and has made me look at the piece of art in a completely different way . The piece was Pablo Picasso’s response to the bombing of Guernica. When writing are comparison we had to consider each element of both pieces the colours,expression,meaning, shapes, shadow. We also had to consider the differences between both pieces…

Drawing a conclusion to the food for thought unit- artist research 🙂
