Today, I had my critique talks with Paul, where he talked about each piece of critique work by me and the rest of the group.
Before the actual critique, I had to stick five post-it note around my painting, and write five words that I think best describes it. The words I used to describe my work are as follows:
When it is my turn for critique, I will explain why I chose those words.
Paul critique the work of 10 students in the group:
Chloe: Sculpture and Photographs
Rowen: Figure Paintings
Danielle: Doodle Art
Wasim: Screen projector
Anika: Wood Drawing
Verity: Installation (broken mobile screens)
Judy: Virtual projection
Yusoo: Media Art
Rebecca: Abstract Video
Harley: Horror Video
Each piece of work was very good, displaying good use of materials, space, tone, arrangements and themes. They were also connected to several relevant topics in the media right now, such as God, politics, virtual reality and femininity. I thought most of these themes were covered well, and greatly conveys the diversity of work from the other year 2 students
We didn’t have enough time to look at my work, but I suspect we will sometime next week.
Later in the afternoon, I met with Bex, my new student mentor, and we talked about other artists I could research for my curator project. We also talked about performance artists, and my plan to do a performance film as part of my studio work. She suggested I look up Yinka Shonibare and his performance video, Masked Ball. She also advised me to make my own masks, as it will save, me buying any more.
Tomorrow, I will help take everything down.
