I thought a lot about placement, and how it should look. I don’t think perfection while hanging I think if it’s wonky it has a bit more character shows carelessness, which in turn show about my Feelings(Sadness). and all of this is about my feelings. The grey painting seems out of place which is good because it makes you think. I did this when I was at my bad place.
This is called Newquay X2. I have called it this because of the two parts of the painting is inspired by Newquay. I have enlargened the painting to be able to see the detail more. the idea of this is the two place mean different emotions from when I was there and when I recently visited it. so the painting in the background is recent emotion of sadness and grieving. and the yellow object is what I did feel which was a happy day but that all change that’s why the two different colours. I think this will be the extent of this idea. There isn’t much more I could do but I don’t think it has interest more.
Sunny Nowell has been creating work about the places he has visited, inspired by Cornish landscapes, beaches and Cheddar Gorge. Using photographs that he has taken from these places he has developed recreated them into paintings with a 3D object attached to it. Greatly inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s Oval (Delos) he took ideas from her work to develop his idea into a painting. Sunny Nowell has created a Painting depicting the emotion felt the days he was there and emotions felt currently. The emotions felt then was the happiness which is represented by the bright yellow sculpture and the rest of the painting contains mostly grey showing how he currently feels sad, depressed and anger.
Field has given me a better idea of how artwork makes problems clearer. For example work, I looked at Banksy and Duchamp work which has given me ideas of how work can provoke the viewer into a state of mind which let the reader feel things the other work wouldn’t normally do that. the provoking of the work shocks the reading into thinking why don’t we do something about this, this could mean that they want to do something to work because they might not consider it art( Duchamp, Fountain) or work that is so offensive that makes people angry(Banksy, Gay Cop Kissing). These types of art shock everyone and makes people think.
During field have learnt some key skills into learning how to transfer ideas into my work, I never use meanings in my work, if it is not about politics but I can now transfer problems about me and other problems from the world into a piece of artwork which came from looking at artists more in depth and meanings.
Field made me think out of my comfort, makes me try things I wouldn’t even try and do if I was allowed to choose on my own. I create work that has a message in the work but the work I made was provocative and something I wouldn’t try. something so shocking to some people.
Another skill I have tried to develop on is my ability to talk to a large group of people. with the other areas in fine art talking to a large group doesn’t happen often, but in field it makes me do it, there is no getting out of it, you have to do it. I’m no the most confident speaker, but during field speaking about my work and answering questions about the work gave me a lot of confidence while doing it. I got a sense of achievement to be able to talk as long and in depth, as I did, it might not have been the best but in my eye, I felt very happy with what I developed in my talk.
My field experience had its ups and downs. during some of the groups I had, I could interact and enjoy myself but some of them I just didn’t like, some were unorganised which let down the whole group down, which in turn lead to me not attending. Another reason why I had lacked in attendance was due to problems with my health which talking about embarrass me and lead me to not coming in for a few sessions.
This is more of the colour I want in my work but I think I will have to add a bit more colour to this but is definitely an improvement. I also added a Wooden block to raise the object to stand out more, caught the viewers eye more. the contrast of the yellowing object.
These are some development from the original idea that I did. They have developed into a square. and increased in size. so they gave a dark background but I want it to be more grey, This is because it shows more of how I feel now about life, as I’m in a dark place at the moment. but the bright yellow show what I did feel on the day I saw the place based on the object. I will develop the size and colours choices in my next painting.
