SWAP: Offsite Show

SWAP was the show put on by Freya Everest, Charlotte Grocutt, Nicole Davies, Meryl Yana, Katherine Scardifield and myself. We formed the group as although we use different mediums and processes, we thought our work would all make sense in the same space. We wanted to set a conceptual framework by which to make work. […]

Reflecting on my Practice

My essay explored themes of calm in art and film as the most successful pieces I’ve made in the past have often focused on a calming process of creating. Although after writing the essay I still feel like I don’t fully understand the topic, it definitely pushed me to think about how calm is relevant […]

There are certain creature archetypes that are starting to appear as I fill the book. Different species are essentially evolving within the drawing formula.

Thinking about Aesthetics

I’ve been thinking about aesthetic art and how people react to it. Purely aesthetic art is just as valid as any other form of art, but it seems as though striking the balance between conceptual and aesthetic art can be really effective. A film by artist Maryam Tafakory was what made me really consider the […]

Book of Creatures

I remember working on a project about making a comic that came to a standstill. I wanted it to be either a comic or a collection of images or scenes that would cover a general theme instead of having a concise and explicit plot as I thought this would better communicate the idea behind what […]

Water Sculpture Ideas

I had this idea to try to make the most appealing liquid I could imagine. I’ve also been thinking about creating a sculpture that would hold water. Combining these two ideas seemed to be the most effective way to use them as the sculpture will be a way for me to display the perfect liquid […]
