These have been examples of starting points I have used to mature and develop my practice. The use of traditional media such as painting, printmaking, drawing and photographic processes offers the opportunity to expand into contemporary spheres through sustained experimentation. These processes provide the imagery to use within further experimentation, such as inquiry into both sides of an artwork, and performance.
This section presents outcomes where both the front and the back of a piece has been used or considered. Examples of this here show the back and the front of a piece being literally displayed, and the backs of other pieces collaged onto the front to create a new front. This facilitates a link through absorption from both sides, representing a connection to internal and external factors of the body and my experience with chronic illness.
Depicted below are two different examples of how I have used stop motion animation and performance within my discipline. Please read the descriptions of the videos on Youtube for further details.
Displayed here are some outcomes for my degree show installation. The video on the left features the stop motion animation and audio I used to project onto my sculptural installation, which is featured in the video on the right.
