"The focus for my self-directed project was ‘Ancient Civilisations’. My final outcome, ‘The Ancient Civilisations Collection’ was curated to act as a simulacrum to many museum exhibitions. An assortment of creative works or ‘artefacts’, the collection resembles some of the most-regarded historical art forms from ancient Egyptian, Roman, and Greek civilisations. The collection consists of found objects such as ceramic tiles, slate, terracotta pottery, and wood. These objects have then been painted with gouache and acrylic, to resemble a likeness of the artefacts found in museums, such as Roman mosaics and Egyptian Fayum portraits".
