Here, I used a shoebox to create a miniature gallery which had inside two pen and ink dawrings and two watercolours along with an installation with pinecones. For this project I was trying to incorporate nature and colour together, this idea came about from watching an episode of the mighty boosh which showed ‘techno mouse’s’ hut. I wanted to create a psychedelic feel, i’ve included a clip of the show in my blog as my context.
Our next activity was the LOCKER EXHIBITION.
We were allocated a locker, which we then turned into a gallery space of our own. I wanted to follow the same theme of nature and colour. So by using vibrant coloured lillies and other plantage I had collected, I created 3 small sculptures along with two paintings. By wrapping vine leaves around fairy lights I was able to create a good aesthetic feel to my final piece.
For our final site/venue project was to show some of our selected artworks in The Roath Park Pub, it was really exciting to actually have our work in a space outside of uni. I chose to use my red pomegranate painting because I thought it was the best one to use because of the colour it was and I thought it was a successful painting in terms of feminism and pomegranates.
