So to kick start our 2 Semester Sam and Tom decided to make a sculptural installation made up of easels, frames and paint. I must say I did like the outcome and the view from widows contributed to the piece in a weird and wonderful way. I love the linear patterns created by the easels in contrast with the zigzag formations created by the frames. These two will do great things together, I just can’t wait to see what they get up to next 😛 Sam’s on WordPress: samcleasby.wordpress.com and Tom has a Facebook page: www.facebook.com/tpjamesbrown check it out! 😀
So as I have litres of paint left I’m just thinking of ideas of what to do next. My inspiration came in the form of discarded cassette tapes, thrown away by the music department as they are currently redecorating their spaces. I was originally going to use the tape on the inside but the shells looked cool, and with litres of paint just next to me… It was meant to be! So I dipped the cassettes in the paint and grabbed another off-cut from the sculpture shop and this is the outcome. I want to explore this too, so I have a feeling I’ll be very busy next year 😛 Ha and I now use my hall room as my workshop, it’s not home so I don’t mind the mess 😛
Alex (another great art buddy of mine) and I paid a visit to Orinoco (a local scrap-store) and got lots of free paint. I opened up our choices and these five colours looked good so I started painting an off cut I got from our sculpture workshop. I’m not a fan of this painting so I plan to do something with this.
