Part: The object - oil paint, canvas and stretcher. How the form of the object creates its own identity.
Part: Dialogue –How dialogue is formed when using mark making and the various techniques, such as, directness, intention, repetitiveness, separation, limitation and expansion within the work process.
With the use of drawn marks, printing and stencilling I can develop an understanding of how lines, shapes and space between lines interact.
The final part is then to combine these three, initial dialogues to form a wider conversation about how and why we our so predisposed to material objects.
Has part of this conversation I would like to examine themes of, displacement, separation, detachment and replacement.
How and why these themes form part of our social, cultural and personal identity.
