Exercise 5.1 – Planning your project
- Write yourself a set of aims to follow on from our initial sentence (see below)
- Complete the method section with detail relevant to your preferred project
- Add some more specific points for reflection
To bring together your learning over the course by creating a final project and body of work that combines two or more strategies to explore some course themes in more depth
- Make initial visual enquiries about
What kind of image do I want to create? What is the process/purpose I want to go through? How am I going to execute it? What is the concept for it?
- Collect materials together by combining at least two of the strategies investigated in this course
I want to work on a bigger scale based on researches of Louise Borgeouis , who worked in panels, Egon Schilele who drew erotic drawings .Both drew a fair amount of women figure. I also want to use “collage” method learned in Part two and “The process” learned on part four
- Create some studies and exploratory work investigating ( see on sketch Part five)
- Make some drawings or series of drawing which will bring your own ideas to images
What have you learned about drawing materials and their potential within a drawing practice? Reflect on your final body of work in your learning log. ( See on Assignment five final body of work)
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of fixing broken objects in a way that it looks better than the original piece before the breakage. Golden
I want to incorporate the concept of Kintsugi which fascinates me in how they transform a broken object into a better piece using and old, traditional and very precise technique. I also want to apply this similar technique in my drawing exploration using the concept of women ageing. I want to show that women might get “broken” for many reasons as they age and it is in these flaws that a new sort of beauty and strength arise. I am take inspiration in the way Louise Borgeois depicted women figure with her washes of watercolour and the irregular lines. I also get inspired by Egon Schiele lines and use of space and mostly his erotic women’s drawing. I think the same can be applied to an ageing woman’s body which changes with time but it also can be seeing with eroticism . I hope I can put all these aspects together and develop my own unique image where I can implement some collage work and also using large scale drawing to be more risky in this new exploration through drawing media.
