Thanks Esmarelda for putting me onto this work; these pieces are fascinating. The way she has combinated metal, ceramic and fabric together is really successful, also the way she balances intense colour with neutral shades and with white. Very organic shapes and structures that suggest all sorts of things! Piercings with emergent elements that could be biological or part of an exotic plant or animal. The contrast between soft, yeilding surfaces and hard, sharp, aggressive forms creates the sort of tention I would like to achieve in my mixed-media pieces. It would be interesting to see them made on a larger scale.
Having spent many years teaching in the FE sector I decided it was time to invest in a little me time and personal development, hence the MA. This blog is intended to outline my creative journey (which started quite a while ago) hence the backdated references to 2000. I hope it builds up to give a picture of who I am, what I am trying to achieve creatively, and how I get there, diversions and deadends included!
