Creating a body of work will be a fun and exciting process, the important components like documentation and research will help me establish a solid basis for my own evolving into a free minded artist. Exploring will help me unlock my potential simply keeping this blog will be how I document the things on my mind. Maybe emotions and day to day things but the real value is what I get to create and share. I imagine how my journey will unfold as I challenge myself to become a master of my work.
Studying the evolution or art I have realised I wast to try and composite my images over the most ancient medium being stone it is the oldest form of canvas known to mankind. I will shoot a series of suitable photos of rock to try a test with my thoughts.
1st April 2016
The rock and sand tests went well, I have the technical method planned for the combining of the different images. I while back I started planning my 10 shot ideas, these will be for my master exhibition and the 3 AIPP entries. I am finding it hard to get the exact elements for each shot as usual I am making life hard for myself. I need to go to several locations to collect the assets and my main concern is the image quality and the correct lighting.
I wanted to keep my ideas a surprise for my exhibition to have a little more impact so I have not shared it too openly with my group at this point. I also thought about collecting the physical elements I am using and placing them in my final display, this may include projecting on the textures of these items.
Concepts I am working on are nature based and inspired from ancient art starting in caves on stone. I have picked several natural elements to work with and I will combine them with human form. In reverse I will try to use man made objects and add natural elements to them as well as human form.
