Another third year update.

I have been going back and finishing work that I have left. I got round to doing some more slides and now have only two more to print on so I'll have the slide box finally done by next week...

The circles are finally finished and will be hung on Monday.

I got my sculptural piece finished too.

Made a box frame for the house print

I have started making this wall hanging in the studio by knitting bits of paper together. It's been great but I am glad it's nearly finished! It's been a lot of fun painting my own child drawings and it's turned out well. There are three or four pictures in there that my sister's drew when they were around four or five. It's really massive too, I haven't got round to measuring it bet but I have a picture of it next to the slide box. I have also added some text as well by writing with my left hand. The text is quite dark compared to the colourful pictures and I talk about hiding and playing in abandoned buildings with my friend. I have decided to hang it with pegs too so it's like it's on a washing line and I will make plasticine covers for over the screws that are holding the rope together. 

I have came up with another piece of work for this last semester. I enjoyed knitting the paper so much that it gave me an idea for a massive silk screen print. I want to make a massive A0  print of my Auntie when she was younger, it's from an old photograph. Once I have the print I'm going to leave it in water and age it, then I will rip it and knit it back together. Here is the image...

This will be my final large piece for third year and I can't wait to start it. After this is done ill set up my space and work on smaller works.
