It seems I have to wait till the w/e before I can get a handle on what happens. Culture shock.
So this week……had to give a 5 minute presentation on Monday for the painting module, chose Marlene Dumas. I was called unexpectedly early so hadn't had too much time to get nervous and it went OK. Am working on pieces reflecting her style this w/e, which if you look her up you will appreciate is interesting.
This is her work based on a class photo from her childhood. I am working on a 1903 class picture from the local village school
Previous Sunday I did an Embroiderers Guild day course with Jae Maries, charismatic textile artist, she made us do some Fine Arts exercises re colour, form and tone and then tear up photos and mingle with fabrics, dunno when I will have time to finish that tho.one more week then we have a week of assessments, so spending more time getting cold feet in conservatory painting and worrying. Less time spent on Facebook however so a result.
