Evaluation

In my evaluation I will explain my thoughts on my previous project,  first of all, I already know I didn’t do a great amount of work to show, but the pieces I had created was a lot more time consuming then I thought, especially the final one of the abandoned scenery, enlarged on a bigger scale something I was planning to try for a long time.

There are areas I need to improve on and step my game up when I start on my FMP Project, for example, take more photographs, research more artist, do pieces that will fill my  book  more before I decide to do a piece that will take more time.

I have learned from this project time is precious when been given a project/brief to complete for the correct deadline date, but I have enjoyed creating these pieces and experimenting with new ideas and intensions to improve my creative mind and also my drawing ability.

Personal Statement

After recently having the chance to work for a commission producing a mural for Elmor, a charity organisation funded by the National Lottery, I have been able to identify and decide on my career pathway. This commission involved working with the theme of transport on a large scale within the confines of a windmill space.Working to the constraints of a brief and making the design fit the space is something that I found really exciting. This experience encouraged me to stay at college to complete a foundation course to develop not only my practical skills but further my understanding of the subject and gain my GCSE Maths and English qualifications. Whilst on this course I have had the opportunity to work across a range of disciplines including 3D, Film and Photography and to collaborate on a large scale project and further my contextual knowledge through a range of diverse visiting lectures and film screenings such as Michael Eden, Dean Hughes, Sean Dower, Daises and Never Let Me Go. These have given me the chance to speak to practitioners about working in the industry and ways to develop my work further. My current work has revolved around producing portraits and has been initially inspired from the collections from the V&A museum, I am exploring the idea of distortion through angles and colour. David Agenjo is a great artist that inspires me, I am particularly interested in the way he uses the canvas as a palette and a record for further developments. I am a little uncertain as to the direction of my career pathway or work, whether it follows a more illustrative or fine art route. I am interested in developing the technical aspects of my drawing and continuing to push my painting skills, I would like to push myself further exploring new techniques and developing academic critical reflection. I feel progressing to a degree course would help me to do that. I also feel that this will help me really focus on the direction of my own work, helping me to prepare for a career in the creative industry. Going to university would help me to achieve my career aspirations and ambition to be successful in my professional and creative development. I feel that I will really benefit from learning at a higher level by studying Fine Art at degree level. I am fully committed to give my full dedication to study.

Research on: Pat Perry

In a modern art era where so much is done digitally. His illustrations feels perfectly proportioned, almost as if in motion. Less reliance on symmetry and more focus on flow. There’s an energy about the continuity and vibrancy of his images, whether the color scheme is brilliant or tempered, and his ability to satisfy a breadth of clients while still solidifying his fine art itch is admirable.

I have looked into Perry’s work with great attention, i am not an illustrator but i have found his drawings in some sort of amusement in wanting to procreate my own work in his style. His work brought a brand new idea to mind, this idea was to take my own photographs of an urban, what most people call derelict, scenery that has in particular objects and emotion when you pursue around the settings. Seeing what natural causes can do when something has been left for so long, what amazing things can occur.

It also links some kind of form with portraiture and the design being the head which interested me the most.
