Artist Statement

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.

Key Concept: Davida

During Davida’s key concept lectures. She starts talking about some artists who started using painting and sculptures and combining them to create one piece and it my head it clicked. with my work, at the moment I wanted to develop from painting to sculpture when Davida said about having 3d paintings I thought it was a brilliant idea. I could develop my painting it to 3D painting then develop them 3d painting to Sculpture. The Artist she said was Jon Cage. there wasn’t much 3d painting of his on the internet, but what I found was this. wasn’t what I was looking for but the idea of there being a 3D effect to work was enough to start me heading towards this idea

Ideas for exhibitions

This page in my sketchbook was a key concept lecture that talking about how to exhibitions space and how to show it in unique ways. So during this lecture, i came up with an idea of how to display my work. I wanted people to be immersed in the work so, have a small space with and curtain in the way to defuses some of the sound and light, so that alll you are focusing on was the work.

Artist Statement -Sunny Nowell

My current work is looking at Landscapes, pacifically seascapes and general landscapes of forestry. Also, looking at rock forms in my work. This will all be depicted through 3D painting. I want to combine these ideas together to show where I have been. This is a journey of my summer shown through 3d painting.

My work for this project is looking at Landscapes of places I have been. I want them to not have a Realistic look about them I want them to just blend into one another. I want this because I Want them to try and see what sort of place it would be, whether it’s a forest so lots of greens and brown or seascapes, so lots of greys blues and yellows. This landscapes will be accompanied by rock forms/cliffs I’ve have seen. I want to do this because I think the contrast of them will create a unique idea. With the rock forms, they will be vibrant compared to the background which will be more of a dull/ Grey Colour, so you focus more on the form of the rock. These Landscapes and forms will be simplified and rearranged to my satisfaction.  The Landscapes will very free flowing, but the forms will be very True and angular. The materials I’ve used our acrylic paints and a wood for a canvas for my paintings. And using some thin wood with spray paint for my rock form.
