2.1 Develop a Visual Response

🍇🍋🍒HELLO DEARS! THE TREAT IS AN SKETCH FOR EACH PIECE OF FRUIT.

Contemporary Context

Task (extract): Using your trend book, your descriptive words and your gathered objects, develop a large body of visual research that explores the aesthetic, atmosphere, ideas and narratives within your trend using a range of methods: • drawing, using varied media, tools and approaches on a range of scales • collage, photography and any other image-making approaches • three-dimensional responses and small-scale making (three-dimensional drawing).

Summary of sketchbook work

I started by gathering my original palette and images and supplemented this with additional imagery and objects – with autumn approaching, different ‘harvests’ are ripening which have added depth to my photographic sources.  They also add a personal element as these are from my garden; it will be interesting to see if this proves a distraction from my trend-led brief or enriches it.  Added to this were the original descriptive words including ‘fresh, rich, ordered, invigorating’ and so on; following…

Aus der Vergangenheit vor 10 Jahren: Die Lebensstufen der Frau – Gemälde von Susanne Haun

✴✴✴HELLO DEARS! THE ART BY SUSANNE DOESN’T NEED EXPLANATIONS. DANKE SCHÖN !

Susanne Haun

Vor 10 Jahren hatte ich eine museale Ausstellung im Schleswig Holstein Haus in Schwerin. Dafür malte ich auf eine 4 x 2 Meter  (800g/m²) großen Leinwand die Lebensstufen der Frau.

Marion von FindeSatz fragte mich in Zusammenhang mit ihrem Tagessatz vom 20. Oktober nach meinem Gemälde (siehe hier).

10 Jahre sind eine lange Zeit, ich würde die Lebensstufen der Frau heute vollständig anders interpretieren. Vielleicht werde ich dieses Projekt einmal in Angriff nehmen. Ich weiss noch, dass die Dame vom Museum fassungslos vor der Leinwand stand und meinte, das seien nun die Lebensstufen der Frau und im Vordergrund steht der Mann. Interessant 🙂

Ich habe einfach Fotos und Presse hochgeladen, damit ihr euch eine Vorstellung machen könnt. Die Leinwand hing durch ein Loch in der Decke und konnte nur vollständig gesehen werden, wenn der Besucher direkt neben der Leinwand stand. Dadurch rückte der Mann tatsächlich in den Vordergrund…

A week of indigo

💙💜 WELL DEARS! AS YOU ALREADY KNOW, THE COLOUR COUNTS A LOT

Flextiles

It was definitely a blue fingernail week last week! It started with a couple of days in Hove with a wonderful group of textile friends who try to get together every couple of months to do a little felting or stitching.

This time, Barbara was rash enough to offer her garden to do some indigo dyeing – though some parts (usually featuring pale limestone!) were definitely out of bounds to people carrying dripping blue fabric. 🙂 The weather was glorious – the last two days of our prolonged heatwave – and the food and drink was plentiful and excellent. Barbara even baked a belated birthday cake for Carol, my partner in Women of the Cloth.

In between the eating, drinking and laughter we even found some time for dyeing, and everyone produced some great work.

When I got back home, it was time to filter my second indigo extraction from…

Sonia Delaunay – Creative Minds Art History Project

💠THIS KIND OF FASHION IS FOREVER. HI DEARS! SONIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOR ME ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS. BEHIND HER DESIGN, THE PENCILS, CANVAS AND DRESSES, NEVER WERE FRONTIERS, HER ART WAS WHOLE AND INTEGRAL. ONE OF MY FAVORITE DESIGNERS!

Allise Nicole's Artistic Explorations

I live in Michigan, and we have been having some wild weather over the past couple of weeks, including over 10 snow days! Since I teach a couple art classes in the program I run in addition to coordinating all the goings on, I still have to get work done on snow days, just without my fun project break :(. I was excited to finally get to host my classes again this week and share a long awaited project with my group! This week’s artist was Sonia Delaunay.

sonia-delaunay

Sonia Delaunay was an abstract artist and designer who not only painted but worked in fabric and costume design, and in 1964 became the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at The Louvre in Paris!

Ma’ Girls are Dressed

👀👒WELL SISTERS, AS WE CAN SEE, THE QUESTION IS SKETCH AND CHOOSE OUR OWN OUTFIT.

Arts and Whatnots by Mia

My goodness! Ma’ gorg’ girls were naked for too long, they must’ve hated me. I found out my Fashion Sketchpad was kept cold inside my book storage and I haven’t worked since the first (and the last) post in here. Sorry girls, I promised you’d be glamorized but yo’ mama was doing all sorts, she totally forgot she has bought a sketchpad. But yo’ mama didn’t forget one thing: her dreams of becoming a ‘fashion designer  and a stylist’.

I need some more practice. And am’a do a lot, just in case I get to fashion school and I can show evidences of such pursuit.

Enough drama gorg’ mama, since ma’girls been found, let’s get dressed! O’right?! 🙂

I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. – Victor Frankl
