Sketchbook page from the body project.
My project evolved from looking at the external structure of the Brain into looking at it in a neurological way. This page was produced further into this experimentation and holds the aim of portraying the scientific detachment that the ‘beauty’ of neurological scans have in comparison to the disease or imparment that may be detected. I chose to look into the neurological pattern of a patient with both vascular and frontal-temporal Dementia (a very rare case) which is personal to me.
I felt this was successful and i enjoyed the technique of using daps of colour to create the models form.
Each session i am trying to expand my painting ability and become less tight with my methods that i tend to resort to when experimenting with new things.
A-level project looking at the sufforcating nature of lies. This piece was a subtle portrayal of my struggle to accept what kind of person i was, trying to hold the character that i knew those close to me would be proud of.
These are two studies exploring ways of portraying the surface of the Brain. These studies were a part of the development of looking into Brain function which would later transfer into the internal workings such as the neurological side. With these studies i wanted to be quite literal but eliminating the outline of the brain so it is not immediatly obvious what is being depicted within the pieces. The initial study was produced in acrylics whilst adding small details and textures in ink and rubbing a pre-existing damp print on certain areas in a relitively directional manner.
An exploration on the effect of high contrast on an image, and whether this gives an indication of a certain emotion, and questioning whether this is accurate. This study was part of a project that was originally looking at the concept of “hiding behind a smile”.
Initial sketchbook studies for ‘Body’ project.
These were initial studies carried out in my sketchbook as a process to redirect my pathway in terms of development which i conducted previous to these studies. They were to reinforce my potential reconsidered final concern of the structure of the brain and the neurological actvity that occurs within it, and to practise my ability to correctly interpret the structure and form of this major organ.
A mammoth illustration as part of the development process of a week long graphics project. This drawing was inspired after a visit to the London Natural History Museum and determining that my graphics project would be based on extinct mammals.
