My current creative practice research inquiry
sets out to examine the alchemic in drawing (visual art). My art practice goes through a transformative processes from a three dimensional object to the two dimensional flattened image. My particular interest is using materials sourced from the everyday in particular the zone of the office. Recently I have used the everyday office material of blu-tack as a drawing tool – stretching and moulding it into ‘blobs and smears. I then scans these forms onto the computer, where I digitally enhance them in Photoshop, before reprinting the images in hardcopy. The blu-tack in artwork maintains its familiarity. It transitions between abstracted forms suspended in a blackened space, and a malleable material with a functional purpose.
This process, look to extend notions of drawing and our conceptions of physical materials, allowing the viewer to experience their possibilities and limitations.
