Inspired by John Kenn’s work
I made an online portfolio c:
so far just the work from my latest project but I’m hoping to build it up through the last project of my BTEC, through foundation year, Uni and what i send out into the big wide world
So today I had an exhibition. My work consisted of a canvas piece and 50 envelopes with stickers in. My artist statement is below to help explain but the main these for this project was addictions and personal demons.
"My work is not designed to be understood. I wanted to highlight the fact that you cannot understand, let alone sympathise with someone stuck in an addiction without yourself having or had one. In ‘It’ll do’ I have tried to emphasize the desperation and complexity within addictions and throughout this project I have come to terms with the fact that I can’t understand addictions fully nor will I try to understand. Though this work has a comical value, I want it to be a respectful representation of the everyday demons and urges that people like us have to satisfy.
The envelopes below contain stickers that personify these demons and I’m using them as a metaphor as they’re sealed in black envelopes you can’t tell what you’re going to get.
We don’t choose our demons, we get what life gives us.
Please take one.”
what I wanted to achieve from this piece is to have not a single one of my viewers understand my work, but alternatively to walk away and know why they cant understand my work.
It’s somewhat fueled by my hate for fake-sympathy.
so exciting to see my work looked at by dozens of aspiring artists and lecturers and to also see my handmade stickers on phones, ipads and even in the art block corridors :D
