Further to my tutor’s feedback from last assignment she recommended I put together a statement of intent for my practice.
Initially I read a number of essays from the book my tutor recommended: Harrison,C & Wood, P(eds.) Art In Theory: 1900-2000. An anthology of changing ideas. Oxford: Blackwell. Continue reading
Generally positive with a few issues with specific prints but I am just focusing on the general areas that need improvement here.
- Work lacks cohesiveness – recommend I complete a ‘statement of intent before next assignment to clarify a theme to my practice.
- Stick to the instructions within the course materials in regards to numbers of prints submitted.
- Ensure the borders are even all the way around and either cut with knife or deckled – not a mix.
- Print on fine paper to get shiny oil ink effect.
In regard to improving my contextual work she recommended I read the following book:
Harrison,C & Wood, P(eds.) Art In Theory: 1900-2000. An anthology of changing ideas. Oxford: Blackwell. Luckily this is available from the local library so I will request it in.
Below is a summary of the work that I have submitted for assignment 2 with links to the relevant pages in my blog.
Demonstration of technical and visual skills
- Good understanding of colour theory
- Design and composition skills improving
- Reasonable observational skills when I am disciplined and take the time to look carefully and draw from life.
I found the local library to be a fantastic resource for books regarding techniques which I plundered throughout this part of the course. As I am not in a position to attend any workshops these resources have been essential for my learning.
