Demonstration of technical and visual skills- materials , techniques, observational skills, visual awareness, design and compositional skill.
I have tried through part five to be more sensitive to my materials and the fabrics I have used to transfer my mono-prints. I chose to print my drawings on organza and velvet to be able to compare the outcomes. I chose velvet because it is a thicker fabric and it is usually seen as luxurious. In contrast I chose organza because it was light transparent and draped well. I decided to transfer my surface print onto organza because it represented femininity.
I experimented and learnt how to do my lino blocks. These were fun especially as I was able to experiment with various colour pallets. I am disappointed that I was not able to do screen printing. I also would of liked to experiment more with different surfaced papers. I run out of time!
Quality of outcome- content, application of knowledge, presentation of work in coherent manner, discernment, conceptualisation of thoughts, communication of ideas.
I have tried to be more confident in my sorting and continued making less, trying to stay focus on my line of inquiry. I hope I have communicated my ideas well. Looking at my body of work it is evident that there is a clear development of my ideas. I spent a lot of time thinking on the presentation of my samples and how I could demonstrate my ideas in a coherent manner. I do believe that part five has naturally evolved through my primary and secondary research. I didn’t set out on part five knowing what I was going to do. I allowed my research, review and critical thinking to feed my next steps.
Demonstration of creativity – experimentation, invention, development of a personal voice.
In part five I have been able to develop and find out why I enjoy the female form. I have also been able to accept and develop my figurative drawing following my personal voice and in turn making my voice just a little bit stronger. I have been able to investigate how to transfer my surface print onto different merchandise and think about the scale of the print versus the merchandise. This alone has been a learning curve.
Context- reflection, research, critical thinking.
My research has been invaluable in part five. Without my research I wouldn’t of been able to come up with my surface print. The surface print is a result of my direct drawings of sculptures and paintings that I have seen on holidays and I recorded via iPad sketches or photography. It is also a direct result from previous research on Vivianne Westwood and sample experiments from part 3 and 4. I continue to work hard in my critical thinking vocabulary.
