Squid Slide projector

After experimenting with the slide projector, I wanted to project an image onto a surface I could paint/draw/etc. around. As I found out, however high the image definition, the image still came out as spots very close up. So I decided to create an image of a colossal squid with just red and black dots (the main colours)

I also experimented with how angles distort the image.

Vicky Hardman also took a nice photo of the bulb in the projector after it has been on for a while.

this is truly awesome

sticker experimentation

idea of an almost brand-like repetition that artists tend to use, from Warhol to Banksy. created into a sticker, the image is of the recent floods in Africa, with water being thrown out of the house replaced with colour. make up your own mind what its meaning is!

Recent drawings

Few drawings im working on. BBC4 documentary series 'Why Beauty Matters' has persuaded me to work in a more traditional stlye, but still incorparating more contemporary themes and experimentation within them and the workings.

Finished Birdcage commission work

being shown in The Birdcage in December. opinoins? selling price?

Frame work

got an idea from French artist Ċ½ilda about putting frames in urban spaces, how art can be in a museum rotting away for enternity, whereas art on the street is short lived, almost like a installation piece, before it is gone over, removed or wears away.

Instead of creating new art though, I am highlighting the my love for composistion, particuarly the ignored, which when focused upon can be more visually satisfying than another. Pretentious I know, but it is what it is.

quick exhibition today

I felt like having some work up at uni, since I missed out a lot last year. Personally, I think my work can now be better, both visually and in terms of subject matter.

This work was made when I was stuck in bed ill, and felt the need to do some artwork. The end result was really quite ambigious to me, and I personally just liked the style of it, hence its creation.

One viewer however, commented on how the work often overlaps and obscures, possibly showing what parts of myself I want to show, particuarly in illness. A sense of forced responsibillity through the unconsciously created imagery.
