Meeting You Halfway (II)

2009

This piece I found he most striking out of all the work on the trip- as I entered the room it was very dark except for the light projection and the room was filled with smoke. The smoke skewed my vision and made it difficult to see or know whether there were other people in the room. As my eyes adjusted to the light it was easier to be able to walk around the room without fear of bumping into something! I enjoyed interacting with the projection by moving in front of the light source and watching the effects of people walking in front of it.

Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above

2017

The detail of these paintings is incredible and it is interesting the way the paint has been manipulated in a figurative way.IMG_9800

This piece is really striking – it makes me think of people walking inside someones mind

1979 – 80

I have always been interested in Francesca Woodmans pieces as she also struggled with a mental health problem and her works with the human figure in are fascinating. I have never seen a colour print of hers so this exhibition was really engaging.

These were just great and huge! Brilliant use of colour.

I am unsure of who the artist is for this work but I really liked the use of apples to cover the human form. It stuck out to me as I recently created my piece ‘An apple a day doesn’t necessarily keep the Doctor Away’
