Wine Dining

Wine-Dining’, is a line drawing of an anorexic woman with a bottle of wine and with half filled glass placed on the table behind her. Her expression is something that I am proud to have captured as it looks as though she is longing for something.

The drawing is made up of harsh lines that are create her form. Drawing on Photoshop really helped me retain a clean aesthetic and yet quite dark in concept. The overall work is very quirky in nature and I think is represents me at this stage of my life (maybe not the figure!)wine dining

I became quite attached to this drawing, and decided to turn it into a gif. This movement formulated that moment when you drink too much wine and start seeing double.

STRANGE No. 3

The concept of these two images stemmed from the ideas presented and explained in “STRANGE No. 1” and “STRANGE No. 2”. This last step in the process was a bit more challenging in that i drew the whole body instead of just the face. The work fits perfectly into the definition of uncanny, as this taps into fear. Freud explained that “an uncanny effect is often and easily produced when the distinction between imagination and reality is effaced, as when something that we have hither to regarded as imaginary appears before us in reality…”. This is something that has been research for many years, but then again everything is subjective to the individual viewing it.

Experiment

After creating the small maquette of a doll i decided to take a mold of the face using Dragon Skin FX pro along with a plaster backing.

After this I decided to pour clear resin and dye it with some pigments. This did not work as planned because the pigments did not dissolve and remained in clumps. These clumps sank to the bottom and created holes in the resin after it cured. the result actually came quite gruesome looking!

Still hopeful, I poured a second batch of resin, this time without any pigments and it worked!

I absolutely love the transparent effect of the resin, it worked so well. It still needs to be buffed to get that glass look, but other than that, I am super happy with it.

My Sister’s Birthday Present

By the time my sister’s birthday came along, I realized that my bank account was dangerously low and I was in a panicked state because I couldn’t afford anything descent for her. Then it came to me! I decided to go all DIY and MAKE her a present. I quickly went into my basement and found an old Chinese pancake holder, thick rope, a glue gun and some air dry clay. First I used my glue gun to stick the rope around the Chinese pancake holder to mask the wicker look. I then thought it needed a knob to open the box, so I sculpted a little dolls face with bunny ears and stuck it in the middle.

Then I cut a small piece of watercolour paper and named it “Emily’s Box of Temptations”, and stuck it just below the sculpture. Finally I went to the supermarket and bought lots of sweets and chocolates and filled the box. Thankfully she loved it 🙂
