I have chosen a few artists' works which I like the best. Artist Barbara Walker - "Good, Good Boy" base on the world of Ladybird children's books. I love her painting which based on every day life story and her drawing look like illustration paintings which are amazing beautiful works.
Artist Lynette Yiadom Boakye - "Condor and the Mile" - base on her imaginative to create her painting and all her drawing base of black women, children and men. Her painting base on 2 black children at the beach the pose are so natural and beautiful.
Artist June Wayne - "The Dorothy Series" base on her visual mother biography. Wayne uses traces of objects to represent her mother at different stages of her life. Simplicity in the abstract artwork and beautifully added in painting to create a series of artwork.
"My touch" by Artist Hermione Withshire. She uses a range of media to suggest the human body on her artwork. "My touch" is made up of ten fragile glass which protrude from the wall which represent touch, imprint and a person's finger tips. I love the sculpture and when it pin to the wall it create shadows and reflection and it look like a hand with 5 fingers. Beautifully present and display to create extra depth.
"Smooth metal Body" by Artist Alice Channer. A 3-D dimensional rendering of drapery is turned into a distorted 2-D digital print on fabric. On the reverse of the silk, smoke rings are printed to the
approximate height of a person's mouth when standing represent a human body. I simply fall in love with this piece of sculpture, it create a 2-D to 3-D on the drape when you look around it and on the reverse side of the silk where you can see a human body where it is reflected on the fabric. Incredible beautiful work.
"Costume for mourning, Saint Colomban" by Artist Estella Canziani. She imitate the convention of fashion illustration, in the profile on three quarter length formats and focus on the costume. I love her painting especially the details on the costumes are amazing beautifully detailed.
I can't really comment on the artists works, during our this foundation course of art and design we been taught to look into the depth of the painting on how it represent. It is a learning curves and I only able to appreciate the artist works and amaze by their beautiful works.
After taking some photos and it is time to get some food and then head back home. I have a wonderful time enjoying something that I love to do which is browsing the artists work and taking photos.
