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.

REAL Wine Dining

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.

STRANGE No. 2

After producing “Jessica” and “Frank” (elaborated on in STRANGE No. 1) I then proceeded to paint small portraits using watercolour. These paintings were then scanned and put onto Photoshop where an overlaying technique was used and their opacity adjusted. The detailed facial features were concealed due to this technique, making one eager to figure out the actual appearance of the image.face3

Both drawings in “STRANGE No.1” were also used in this process.

I was very happy with the results, I think they are interesting pieces in themselves.
