I now have a project to complete before I begin the art foundation course in September. I need to visit some exhibitions and look at the work of a contemporary artist and make connections with my own interests. I’m probably not explaining it well but I am dog tired (cue cartoon of me woofing wearily! Nope, fortunately haven’t done that 🙂 ). Anyway, the gal I think I’m going to be looking at is Tracey Emin and I think I’ll be heading to Margate soon to see that exhibition of hers at the Turner Contemporary. One of the things that draws me to her is her use of embroidery in her work. So for today’s drawing a figure stitched on paper. If I want to do it Emin-stylee I need to get me a blanket and make it huge. I think I may well do something akin for my project.
