Midyear citique over


I was told to work on the figure more and to try to put the same "power" from my black-n-white work into my new direction (I worded it nicely though). Too decorative but I need to work with colour harmony and meaning, I doubt I will work with meaning of colours but harmony/theory of colour is a definite.


I quite enjoy this new direction I am persueing, though I need to find new ways of applying the duck-tape or if I should stop useing it or paint on it. Catherine and Danniel said to leave as is, I like it but I guess (from Paul and Michele's recomendation I should look into meaning of it or find other ways for it to be used). The work below is the direction I am going to work with for the time being, though I plan to try out other possibilities in the mean time. Things I have in mind range from knitted series of "sculptures" and some photography collection series. I might start this Monday December 7th, I should work really on the projects I have to finish for Advanced Painting. More to come soon.

Studio- mess and progress


Studio progress/mess images. Working away at various things at the same time, thinking of heading out early to work on a writing assignment due this week and maybe write out more notes for Thesis Report. We will see how this goes.
The piece on the far left is for Advanced Painting, which I'm trying to work with the idea of the Cyborg in Donna Harraway's Cyborg Manifesto. Still have to come up with a composition for the figure. The piece beside it is putting two different images together, in this pieces's case it's a cover of a (I hate the term but,) Shemale pron magazine and a shot from some straight Porn review magazine. Inset duck tape and Voila.
I really adore the duck tape and what it refers to. Still playing with how I can add it to works or how I can subtract from it to add imagery. Really is open to alot of possibilities for me to work with.
Really anxious to go home, I think I have a cold or something from my unit mates on the north side of the apartment. Going to pack up now I guess and work the whole time tomorrow. Elizabeth get's back from Montreal tonight at 3am, so we will see how awake I can be for class. Have a good night everyone, wish me well.

Current progress


I've been quite busy working away at various works the past while. Playing with Duck tape and juxtaposing different images/bodies into the same work.
They remind me of Mondrian, the sectioned portions is something I remember doing back in high school. It was bound for a comeback sometime.
As for the duck tape I think I need to look for other colours, perhaps stick to Mondrians pallet.
I will bring my camera to take proper pictures, as my web cam does not stand up to it. And I am going to force myself to carry my case of mediums to work with.
On another note I think I need to look at Jean Gagnon's Censorship, since I seem to be playing with that notion. Women are not sensored, but men are. Let's see how this goes shall we?

Who Dunit?

So the final works are finished for whodunit, I am not sure i like these two considering they got submitted alredy, oh well. I might start some small works ,same size, that I could submit next year if I feel like it.
I hope to get these two back so I can improve on them and also compare it to my progress since. Now to finish other things for the night.
