Print Project

THEME PROJECT

 

 

................................................................................................................................................................................................

The Theme Project has been the most enjoyable and eye opening project i have done so far. I have always enjoyed print and more likely then not try to incorporate it into my designs. However, before this project i had never really considered studying fashion print at BA. After the completion of this project i feel that my passion for print has grown massively and is now a pathway that I am most likely to head down for my future degree.

LORENZO VITTURI

 

I Love Vitturi's work the use of block complimentary colours is something I tend to use in my own print work, that mixed with the use of photography is incredibly successful in my eyes.

I never would have guessed that these photographs were taken from London's very own Ridley Road Market, the vibrancy of all the images makes you feel like you have been transported to the market stalls in south Africa.

Vitturi arranges found objects and photographs them against backdrops of discarded market materials, in dynamic compositions. These are combined with street scenes and portraits of local characters to create a unique portrait of a soon to be extinct way of life. His installation at the Gallery draws on the temporary structures of the market using raw materials, sculptural forms and photographs to explore ideas about creation, consumption and preservation.

MARTIN PARR

 

I looked to Martin Parr for inspiration who is know for his photographic projects that take an intimate and satirical look at aspects of modern life. I was particularly inspired by his 'LIFE'S A BEACH' collection which has been an ongoing project for many decades. i am intrigued as to how he captures all aspects of this tradition including close ups of sun bathers, swimming dips and picnics in the UK and other countries around the world. This exhibition demonstrates Parr's engagement with a cherished subject matter.

YAYOI KUSAMA

 

The Pumpkin is a common motif in Kusama's work that has repeatedly turned up in both her paintings and sculptures over the course of her career. She has made tiny pumpkins no bigger than a key ring, and monumental pumpkins that dwarf the viewer with their scale. She has placed pumpkins in box structures and in mirror rooms, and used the distinctive knobbly patterning of their skins as inspiration for her unique dot-patterned paintings and textiles.

The exhibition comprises a major new series of bronze sculptures on display in the gallery's unique water garden. The bronze pumpkins have been two years in the making and mark the first time the artist has worked with bronze on such a large scale.

With theses images in mind I have began to play around with placing my own seaside holiday images behind my stencilled chip prints to create more layering.
