It's getting to that point in my life where I must seriously consider what happens next. For me, I am ninety nine percent certain of where I am heading, and that is to university to study a degree in Art History. I'm still in the process of receiving offers from potential institutions (three of five so far!), Goldsmiths is definitely the front runner.
For others, the rest of my class that is, they are in the process of finalising their portfolios for foundation interviews. As a result it is a compulsory element of our course (Art and Design Applied) that we have a mock "interview" with our course leader, going through our portfolios, making sure we are able to discuss our work and put our best art-foot forward. Considering I am not applying for foundation, it is understandable that I have been sent to the back of the queue dragging my portfolio behind me, meaning not only do I have plenty of time to make it look pretty, I have the least pressure. There is no need for me to starting screaming at the shop assistant; WHERE ARE THE A1 PORTFOLIO SLEEVES? Although I'm sure it would be quite fun.
Anyway enough rambling, I thought it would be a good opportunity to showcase some of my work, I'm not great and I hate showing it, but I thought "hey why not". I don't have to stand in front of an applicant pool and defend my work, like some people I know have to. So without further ado...
I like to work averagely big, each of these are about A1 in size. It's pretty evident that I'm not a fine artist and am forever being called an expressive artist. But I am happy with that. I love printing, the unpredictability of it, the quick process of the technique and life drawing is just damn therapeutic.
If you are in the same boat as me where are you heading in September? If not where are you heading now?
