New Work #2

I have been back in Falmouth for around a month now. A lot has happened and it's taken me ages to settle in properly. The term has started with a lot of representational drawing, life drawing and improving my technical ability. I have loved this and have grown in confidence with drawing outside and in front of people. The amazing thing about the Drawing course at Falmouth is that everyone, years 1 to 3 feels like one big family. The course is small and we are able to walk around and see what others are working on. This is very inspiring as it is great to see how others are developing their practice. 

The second years recently put on and exhibition of their work from a recent project about the emergent process. I was really inspired by a collaboration between 3 of the students. The use of media and scale of the piece has given me a lot of ideas. 

Work by Hilda, Kayleigh and Sam 

As well as being busy with the course I have also had some time to be back in the print room. It feels so good to be back in the studio environment. I'm still very much interested in mark-making and the role this plays within my practice. 

Below is some recent work I have created since being back at University.

Repetitive mark-making experiments 

Line and repetition is definitely something I want to continue to explore. I find order, repetition and pattern calming.

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Royal Drawing School Year Show - 2018/2019 review

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.
