the girl who stole the Eiffel Tower

'Solid Water'
Collage on A1 Foam Board

From playing around with collage and drawing in a more conventional way, I now want to create abstract drawings from the selected images, instead of creating abstract images that are still quite recogniseable.

I also wanted to achieve a more delicate outcome that is still quite modern and clean.

'Cutting the Colour'

Collage on Foam Board

I really like this longer shape, rather than the A1 Foam board piece.
It gives the piece a much nicer composition.

From feedback given to me from my mid-term assessments I am also trying to play around with the sizes of my work.
For example, these drawings I see getting much larger and being inspiration for a huge painting.
I am also working on some tiny collages on passport photos to completely contrast to this. Considering the ways in which an artwork can be hugely domineering or incredibly intimate.

... and from a pile of magazines

Small collage experiments for larger collages.

Kandinsky-esc collages.
Looking for a modern, crisp, graphical outcome.

Panic! ... about the dissertation

Dissertation over... !!

And on with the part everybody loves... the art work.

'Panic! 2'
Acrylic Paint on Canvas

Because of the restrictions on the sizes of the ppsheet I have been using, I am starting to explore other materials and other sizes. Starting with the obvious (canvas) to view my work on a larger scale.

the incredibly small tennis racket...

Birthday card for a Tennis fan.
She would have perhaps preferred Nadal on the front, however... I had 1 hour to make it so this is the best I could come up with on such short notice...
which may explain the small tennis racket lol!
