Fracture I – Major Project

Architectural Space, Floor, Installation, Vinyl, Wall, Work in progress

The past month has been full of stuff.  I completed my research paper and submitted it, which was to discuss the issues present in my work and situate my work within an historical context.  It was quickly apparent that five thousand words wasn’t going to allow me delve too exhaustively into all aspects of my work, but I was able to cover part of it.  It was a great opportunity to learn about my practice and what drives it.  I may post a few excerpts in future posts.  Alongside this research paper submission, was my major project.  This was a major artwork installed so it could be assessed for half an hour and then taken down.  Ohhh the days it took to create for half an hour!  Actually, it was probably alive for 3 or 4 hours in total.  It now lives on in jpegs.  Oh those jpegs!  I’m still rather mourning it – it is the occupational hazard of the artist making ephemeral installations.

Perhaps I’ll stop all this suffering and show you the images.
Here they are – some of the work in progress and some of the finished documentation.

In my research this year, I have been looking at the Romanticists, a group of painters during the Enlightenment era who focussed on the emotions and the imagination in a time where such things were frowned upon.   and instead a great deal of emphasis was placed on evidence and logic, and skepticism of traditions and rituals.

One thought on “Fracture I – Major Project

  1. Half an hour? That puts a whole new perspective on things. Is the art plagued by impermanence or thankfully reusable? I wish I could see some of these exhibitions in the flesh…
