I'm looking at artist's work and stuff hoping it'll trigger SOMETHING, but alas no. shit.
And what makes it worse is that this is the stuff that i love doing! Making stuff. Nicey fabric. Pretending im old. i don't want this to be shit, but i dont know what to do.
Probably about time to pour over the Art of Looking Sideways in the hope that something will happen.....
Deciding that conflict was the more effective visually i settled on using fists portraying violence. I played around with fonts and layering and was plesantly surprised by the physical layering effect of using cartridge paper, two sheets of accetate and coloured paper to show the high/low lights.
photo quality is shocking, i am aware. i can always update later...
I saw this a couple of years ago on the culture show and was blown away.
It flows so nicely with the words and images seamlessly working together. there's no wonder that it was nominated for the oscar.
i would die happy if i could do anything remotely like this.
I saw this on Sky Arts a few days ago and thought it was the best thing i'd seen in ages. I found it really hypnotising. And the organ that swells every so often makes it so chillingly lovely.
