So for the begin of the first, day we had to find a piece of work in a gallery ( so we didn’t use the internet) this work will influence our practice for this year. I choose Barbara Hepworth, a cornish artist who worked with a lot of wood and sketch a bit in her work. the sculptor I choose was call Oval (Delos)
. During our first subject, session we had to talk about our summer project which was to record and create 3 pieces of work. but as I didn’t really go anywhere and the ideas I had was let down by the fact the I could melt the pewter at all, so the only piece of work I did be a cornish mermaid made out of a log from the taff trail During the afternoon we had to find an artwork which someone in the group chooses and researches it without using the internet, so went to the library and found a few books to help me. the info we found had to write it down and give it to the person using the art.i had to research Black Magic – Magritte. What I found was that his wife was the model, a quote I found was that he said was “it is an act of Black magic, this transformation of a women’s flesh into the sky” and Nietzsche’s theory was that he must have been obsessed with sex to paint so many madonnas.
Another part of the afternoon session was to create 3 pieces of art from the person we choose artwork, we had to make a drawing in charcoal and an A1 piece of paper. We turned around the original picture and worked from the drawing we did to then used 2 different colours and create another piece, then had to make a sculpture of the drawings we did
These are the work done from my artwork I choose
