The Looking Glass.
Friday, 9 September 2011
So here it is, the beginning of the end of my time at art school. This year I plan to focus more on photography and printmaking, bringing my project to some sort of end point. I would like to work with a lot of mirrors, reflecting the different sides of my own personality but also to represent the way that most people have multiple personalities.
To begin, I plan to get a new range of photographs to work from and I will have to call on a few of my art buddies to help out with this. Working again with black and white mostly digital but also some darkroom photography is in order . I plan to purchase a Diana camera when my student loan comes through and play around to see what kind of effects I can get.
I then plan to take my images into printmaking and develop them further, screenprinting and lithography are the main techniques I will use to combine and edit my images.
Its early days yet but by the end of the year I hope to have enough images and works to surround myself with them and create some sort of installation. I looked into this last year, this being one of the main images which inspired me to do so.
