Last week I laid down my brush and realised I was finished with my suite of works that would be submitted as my final pieces – eight in all. I have yet to put them in order, as if they were going to be mounted on the white gallery walls. I will take this order into deep consideration, talking to my tutor she has pressed that it is of upmost importance how the work is placed in the context of itself. It should lead the eye rather than hinder it.
Over the months in isolation, I have continued onwards in painting, at a slower pace. The respect I had for my painting constitution paid off, I didn’t paint if it wasn’t right and instead made an alternative piece – in video and charcoal. This broadening of my practise helped me immensly: it encouraged my creative thoughts and practise. I have discovered that while I am a painter I am many other things too, and to achieve the best result I have to spread my creativity over multiple mediums.
I’m happy with the final suite of works, I have only uploaded three here as I wish to keep them mostly away from the internet while they haven’t been marked still, they are still fresh to me.
There will be more to come..
