geommetric prints from I draw pictures.
I have looked at this as I am theming my FMP on Scandinavia, and am producing digital prints for organic jersey tops, using shapes from primary imagery I took on my trip to Stockholm in February.
I like the use of colour and black outline, and it’s graphic but hand drawn like qualities.
I stumbled across this graffiti on a walk through Chester back streets. It’s surroundings were posh houses and on a random wall I found this. I thought it looked really odd within it’s surroundings. I like the juvenile qualities of the graffiti, with the teddy being swept away by a balloon. It reminds me of the street art that we covered last year in cultural studies, it conjured up thoughts of maybe it being someone’s trade mark. I thought that it wasn’t your usual street art.
On a trip back from Hebden Bridge, over the tops, I decided to stop at a reservoir. I couldn’t believe how clear the reflection in the reservoir was and think that the image is beautiful as it’s completely symmetrical. With the majority of my work, I take primary imagery for my research as I think that it’s critical to get first hand research when theming my work around a project as it’s more personal.
This photo again was taken on a trip to Chester centre. I like the juxtaposition of the random lanterns and hanging objects with the modern background. This image could inspire me in my work…
Again, this image was taken from a visit to Chester. When walking around the walls, I couldn’t find a way to get down to walk along the river, therefore I chose to take the photo through the ornate looking fencing. I like how the fence creates a physical lense to create a picturesque scene of a couple along the river. Again, it’s conjures up narrative qualities of the couple that you can see in the distance.
I took this photo at the Manchester Craft and Design centre where it was a shop’s window display.I like the fact that for the window display they’ve used newspaper, using an unwanted recycled object and making it into a desirable object and giving it a new life. Within my work, I like to take a unwanted objects and materials and incorporate them into my work.
I have also used this for inspiration for my Rectella brief, where the project is to advance our skills and to build a portfolio manipulating fabric. I like how they’ve manipulated paper to create 3-D forms.
