The feedback I have received is detailed and personalised and enables me to move forward with encouragement and growing confidence.
1)Suggestions that I wish to carry forward into further practice include:
*’pushing the boundaries and parameters’
*continue to ask questions and explore possibilities, reflecting on outcomes
*develop ‘architectural forms’ in samples that incorporate abstract sculptural elements
*continue to reflect on impact and thought process as well as artist research
*continue to search out and deeply investigate artiss working within relevant field
*continue investigations into symbolism and structure
*continue to play with form, structure and take risks
2) Suggestions that I see as: To Action Now:
*revisit book folding technique: ‘I personally find the printed paper a little distracting. It would be great to see these tested on recycled brown wood chip of newsprint papers.’
*revisit the wrapping paper form using tissue paper and brown paper to look again at the resulting ‘movement, silhouette and form.’
*’begin to build a Bibliography page’ –I have set this up today (4.3.16) and will remember to add a brief analytical sentence to assign its relevance to the line of enquiry.
3) Suggestions that I see as: Next Steps:
*’…using oiled hands to crumple, you worked crumpling dictionary pages. Although you were dissatisfied with these samples I would encourage you to revisit this at a later date.’
*explore the processes of heating and fusing when safe to do so.
*’consider more puncturing techniques. Perhaps be a little braver, expressive, dynamic with these.’ – this needs to be undertaken along with some research into process and practice to facilitate this.
*daily sketching and idea capturing
*introduce more materials – I’ve already actioned this with mudroc and welding steel. This will be on-going too.
I also feel that, further to the reassuring comments, I am on the right track with regard to how I am beginning to use my sketchbook as a visual diary. Importantly I have enjoyed this way of working as it feels more intuitive to me so I shall continue to let this evolve.
