Gap Crit 13-02-18
- Viewed as precarious but solid
- Tension is all in one place
- “Satisfying to look at”
- As the two shapes are the same size, this plays with ideas of volume.
- Smaller sculpture should be bigger
- Could experiment with shapes.
- Need to improve technical skill
To make sculptures more imposing
- Emphasise shadows
- Spikier (increased risk)
- Shown in a smaller, confined space
When placing work for the gap crit it seemed a good idea to use a different style to the exhibition in Kongs. Where shadows had played an important part in the previous show, this space had white walls and strong lighting; this created a vast difference in the way the sculptures were viewed. Comments from the audience compared the two and made it clear that emphasising shadows and line created a stronger reaction and interest in the viewer.
I will look into ways of manipulating the lighting in the Degree Show.
Degree Show Proposal
My current practise is exploring the idea of imbalance, shown through a variety of steel sculptures and drawings. With an emphasis on materials and process, my work aims to give an impression of uncertainty and potential risk.
For the degree show I plan on exhibiting several steel sculptures of various sizes, currently I am unsure of specifics but they are likely to take several weeks to complete.
I will be requiring floor space to exhibit, preferably an open area that allows the audience to walk throughout the work and have a little interaction. Subdued light would be helpful as shadows will be a part of the overall effect; if the light is low I may need spotlights or something similar.
I will possibly be using plinths to display some pieces but I’m not yet sure of sizes. I shouldn’t need any help with installation.
