A sketchbook snippet.
We have been asked to look at the techniques and themes that we have covered so far, and to develop one piece of work. I was drawn to develop the theme of breaking out of boundaries, and have begun constructing ideas for a piece that will be a mixed media 3D installation rather than a painting.
I will hopefully be getting hold of a perspex box-frame and I will use a drill to create an open crack in the perspex. Next, I will work on a 2d painting, most likely abstract but making good use of colour. I will then allow it, through using material such as wire and string, to jut out into the room as though the painting has escaped from the frame and is doing it’s own thing outside the confines.
I have made a small concept model in my book that should demonstrate my ideas.
