Projection Photos

I decided to project flowers and take pictures because i liked the idea of two different living things merging into one.

After playing around on the camera and changing the white balance and shutter speed settings i finally got the perfect setting and it captured the intensity of the colours. These are a few of my favourite shots i took; Daisy is almost one with the background, she’s merged with the pictures.

I like these pictures because of the colour pallet they compliment each other and do not over empower each other.

I could have improved the photoshoot by planning it out better and picking out poses and include a few more people.

pen drawings

There was a set up of still life objects and i focused on certain areas and drew them. I liked the mannequins because of the various different lines in the shape; straight, curved, soft and harsh lines. The composition of the mannequin captured a lot of the light on one side leaving the other side shadowed.

Duane Michals – Photography

Duane Michals is an American photographer.

 Over the course of 55 years of creative output, Michals has ceaselessly reinvented himself, never content to settle on a single anything. He has staged photographs, he has written on photographs, he has drawn, painted and manipulated photographs, he has constructed elaborate fictional narratives—in short, he has never allowed himself to be limited merely by what was done before in the genre.

I like Michals photographs because they are mysterious and almost supernatural like.

Michal is a storyteller, his images speak volume and are able to tell you a story without words, often those stories are dark and depressing.

Batik & Embroidery 

I used the batik method on a patterned fabric to make it more vibrant and interesting i kept it quite simple and abstract which i also did with my patch workI wanted to make something sinple but with character so i googled abstract patchwork and got some inspiration from them.

I kept the stitching messy,  I didn’t want it to be neat, i feel like it gave spiderman more personality 

Painting 

I really like the outcome of this painting, i like how i added texture by making the brush strokes harsh and visible. I like my use of colour on the mannequin. I like how the background ties in with the objects. I am not happy about is the skull head, I couldn’t get it the way I wanted it and i didn’t add in shadows and highlight to give the painting depth
