Distinction Fine Art FoundationThe Art Academy
- London, United Kingdom
My Foundation has been invaluable in allowing me to realise what kind of maker I am - how I approach my practice and bring meaning to my work. It gave me the space to define and analyse my artistic interests, such as texture and material quality, as well as gaining many new skills, such as an understanding of ceramics and Photoshop. I embraced the opportunity to follow the momentum of my creative exploration, encouraging the germination of ideas and having the facilities and support to tangibly realise these ideas. I enjoyed learning new approaches to drawing and painting, but I found the most vitality in sculpture. I delight in the immediacy of sculpture, the reliance on material properties, and experimenting with the extent to which these can be transformed, translated and pushed. I began to interrogate the definition and nature of sculpture itself; what makes something sculptural and how is this different from other art forms? This trajectory led me to a preoccupation with space and sculptural context. My final show and current work continues to investigate this premise, with the intention of creating pieces that actively engage with their potential spaces.
