My final piece consists of nine prints, that feature a fictious character shown in Samurai armour. Samurai and Japan culture interest me for their sense of honour and wisdom. I chose to put the character with these values in a post-apocalyptic world, in order to create contrast. This disorder and trauma reflect the world we see today. I find the scenes of destroyed buildings and a barren world worrying. I got my ideas from games that I play such as Fallout 4 and Dying Light, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Ghost of Tsushima for my Japanese armour.

My final piece is an illustration of a mask that’s made up of four different pieces. The name of the illustration is called: Under It All, because it’s a picture of the mask breaking apart and losing power. Once it breaks apart you end up seeing who’s behind it, basically who was hiding under all that power and deception. Each piece of the mask stands out for something, one piece is to do with my character, the others are made of history, culture and omnipotence. In the centre of the mask is where it breaks apart. Each side is uses different mix media, using pencil, acrylic, felt pen, card board and chalk.

I have created chameleon characters but unlike chameleons that use colours to blend into backgrounds. I am using colours to express feelings through sometimes blending in or standing out in a crowd.  The character I have created are twin beings. That alternate their colours at will.

Statement

This piece discusses the issues with politics, consent, abortion and sexism. The style of this piece is an expressive and immediate in the use of roar mark making in a newspaper/poster format. I want the work to give off a sense of importance and urgency. The use of contrast through colour, helps re-iterate the urgency that we are freely allowed to speak out on today issues. The piece uses quotes, statement and facts to underpin the work.

My fmp is a Manga style story board that has characters that I have created and designed. The story board consists of four sections, all the characters were planned out and all have different characteristics and style they also have different types of powers and skills. The design of the story board is in a tradition Japanese Manga it is in black and white with a black border. There is some speech but not a lot as I wanted to focus on the detail and design of the characters and background.

Progressed from

Statement

My project is on changing identity; I have mixed history, mythology and fantasy into reality using different techniques and skills. I have mixed different cultures and myths into my art but mainly around a 9-tail fox called a Kitsune which I have been interested in since I was little. I have used things from my past such as objects, places and favourite things in my final piece. I have made it in a way that will bring the character I created into a reality.  

Each part of my artwork represses another level of my emotion, fantasy and imagination within it, such as personality or another depiction of myself through my eyes onto an art piece for my audience.

Statement

This piece combines the series of photography and identity to create a more personal piece. This has allowed people to see how I personally identify myself and it shows what makes me unique to others. The images document my changing relationship with the people who make up my social circle. The layering effect reflects the complex feeling that make up our feelings and changing thoughts.

I have explored human emotions and expressions and there causes, focusing on current issues. The fact we have been wearing masks during the pandemic, limiting the reading of facial expression. Gave me the idea to work with a mask. I have looked at artists such as Vince Low and Elly Smallwood who create portraits that show emotional tension.

My final piece consists of 4 drawings of me changing as I grew up through the ages with characters I was interested in at the time and how they changed as I grew up. On the side where I drew myself, I wrote words that corresponded to how I felt at that age and how my feelings changed as I grew up. On the side of the characters I used a range of mixed media to colour/fill in the character.

Statement

My project is a series of paintings of my brother expressing characteristics of his personality. And using these contradictions to develop fictious images of him that includes his interest such his fascination with Anime characters. I asked my brother which specific Anime characters he would like me to illustrate of him and I asked him why he likes these anime characters so much. I took photographs of my brother from different angles of his face to get the small details on his face, so my paintings would pick up certain details.

For my final major project, I made a series of sculptural heads, using clay and plasticine that focus on the theme of explored emotional facial expressions. Researching historical and cultural influences such as African sculptural masks. I adopted a fluid style through clay and plasticine, photographing the transition. I explored the idea of presenting the work in a totem form that will reflect an ancient human tradition. I have also used re-cycle material, in order to personalise and modernise the work.

Statement

My project is about our perception on beauty. Focusing on race and culture, through multiple layering. That uses light and colour as a reference to expressing feelings such as calmness, strength and being vulnerable. Reflected in the before and after photograph on the main piece. I have tried to create atmosphere in the photo shoots by encouraging them to adopt a sense of reflection in their time with me.

Statement

My piece shows the development of changing identity through multiple types of mixed media, and artist research. Throughout most of my work I have been working on pieces with animals and nature that reflects my interest. All my work is evaluated in response to how I could improve and what was good about the body of work. I am looking towards building a career in animation and cartoon drawing. For my final piece I made my own plasticine models; based on my relationship with my pets. Turning them into characters through clay sculptures and screen print designs. Working in these two mediums as allowed me to merge areas together.

Statement

The piece contains lots of mix media that is well included in my final major project along with other types of work from different artists I referenced from to create it. I chose to focus on childhood TV shows from my past like Scooby Doo the mystery machine and the spiders. I created different scenes in relation to the places they have been or going. This is to create a sense of mystery in a Halloween set design.
