Dana Schutz

Contemporary What would happen if someone were to eat their own face? The literal single explanation that describes what is going on in this rather funky artwork. http://www.artnet.com/WebServices/images/ll535634llgBX072CfDrCWBHBAD/dana-schutz-face-eater.jpg Source: Artnet.com http://prod-images.exhibit-e.com/www_petzel_com/eSCH050021.jpg Source: Prod-images.exhibit http://1vze7o2h8a2b2tyahl3i0t68.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/SCH-15_014L.jpg Source: wpengine.com http://www.noclue-mag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Dana-Schutz-Self-Eater-3-2003-Oil-on-canvas-1092-x-737-cm-%C2%A9-Florence-et-Philippe-Segalot-New-York1.jpg Source: Noclue-mag.com http://m2.artspace-static.com/media/a-s/articles/1588-442420519387/dana-schutz-interview-petzel-2015-900×450.jpg Source: Artspace-static.com

Daniel Sinsel

Contemporary Daniel Sinsel creates small delicate photorealistic paintings creating illusions. This is one artist in the long battle between photography, a made object and painting. Chiascuro is often used strongly in his works to add emphasis to the realism. Innuendos and gestures are also often in his work, especially works that were from his MA. […]

Emma Talbot

Contemporary There is no particular order to which Emma Talbot puts her images to form her artwork. They end up looking like somewhat organised comics or decorative rugs, much like Bayeux Tapestry. The stories depicted in these works are her own experiences which are often tender, intimate moments. She has been heard to say that […]

Mary Heilmann

Contemporary Mary Heilmann thought that painting was missing the point and it had become very impersonal. In some ways she is a lazy artist as she thinks about the painting a lot, but then paints them very quickly. Within her paintings, she uses emotive colours which is often opposite to what other painters and artists […]

Karla Black

Contemporary This piece of artwork cause my eye immediately when we were looking at contemporary artworks and paintings. The piece of Concentration 55 in the Dallas Museum of Art, USA, uses cellophane, sellotape, paint, body moisturisers and cosmetics to create a large network of plastics. The view behind of trees is distorted and yet you can still […]

Richard Diebenkorn

Contemporary Painting “Notes to myself on beginning a painting Attempt what is not certain. Certainly may or may not come later. It may then be a value delusion. The pretty, initial position which falls short of completeness is not to be valued – except as a stimulus for further moves. DO search. Use and respond […]

Writing About Imaginary Artwork

I really did struggle with creating this piece of text, and so I took inspirations from childhood stories. These were not my own but rather the memories of family, as I personally do not enjoy writing about my own memories as they are incredibly personal. However basing this on others memories, I have been able […]

Abstract Drawing

I didn’t really know what to expect from this Thursday workshop, however, that’s part of the reason why I chose to do it. It was run by Celestine Kim, a PhD student studying at the University of Reading. And we decided on our meaning of abstract drawing and decided upon the features of expressing your […]

Photoshop

So I had a session on Thursday learning the basics of Photoshop. This is a programme that I have used before, but just for layering usage, and not for the use of more professional works (even though my experimentation at the end wasn’t that professional, yet I loved it!) We also had three students (PhD […]
