Part Five – Stage Two
After reviewing my work and noting a few areas for research I then forwarded my ideas to my tutor. As usual her notes were both sensible and straight forward. I was still concerned about the final piece as I have no idea what I’ll eventually produce but I have put that to one side to focus on the research.
It transpired that my ideas really split in to two sections, initial research and visual/practical development.
Installations where large numbers of small items have been used.
Examples of contemporary drawing
Stitched collagraph examples, if any.
Choose a theme or aesthetic to derive pattern, colour, structure and texture information.
Draw from theme/aesthetic
Create ‘plates’ based on these drawings and contextual research
Combining materials on collagraph plates
Printing from non-standard surfaces such as airdrying clay, ceramic, plaster, fabric etc.
Printing on to fabric – technical details but also different methods
Use ‘ice’ cubes to find colour palette
