monoprint on newsprint

An experiment with printmaking of subjects taken from a film still.

:      still life using oil paint to do a colour study introduce me to a media that I am unfamiliar with and these inductions are significant.

independent studio practise:

: studio practise starts with paintings of a chosen subject matters and experiments with different media.

oil pastel on paper

8.27 x 11.69 in

: a study of a beef's carcass, also looking at Rembrandt and Chaim Soutine's carcass series of paintings.

 Different media is used to experiment with highlighting the flesh and the rawness of the subjects.

A different subject is then chosen to change my approach in capturing a flesh concept, looking at Chardin's The Ray, 1728 still life painting.

The study is then developed into a staged scene using a photograph that I have taken to explore the relationship between the 2 fleshes.

The series of photographs can be view on

fmfm concept photography.

 the 'ageing' matter of meat , 2015

this concept is then moved onto exploring a decaying / ageing nature of living subjects by observing someone that I know closely.

SEM B

For the second semester of the year, I decided to take upon a different media to explore the potential of my concept and to move away from my usual way of working.

video induction project:

The video is created as a recording of movements merging with it's surrounding, and getting familiar with the media.   

i, 2016 captures the performance of a narcissistic behaviour, playing on an emphasis on dialogues.

 

It is a concept explored along with the installation, a continued development from the staging event.
