General Information

She is best known for photo-realistic paintings and drawings of natural environments and phenomena

such as the ocean, spider webs, star fields, and rocks. Her earlier work included pop sculptures and monochromatic representational paintings.

Details

My opinions

 

I picked her as my research subject was because she holds another point of views to make art, compare to Daniel Buren.

She oftenly drawing photo-realistic painting in several "marks" she likes. You can feel that her work is like a photograph, but the strong texture of painting makes this work looks so surreal. This method of fuzzification on defining boundary was so fascinating.

Reflective Q&A: 16th June

 

 

 

 

 

Q: Which  drawing task has made you see drawing in a new way? And how?

 

A: To be honest, I have already complete those training in foundation, so the task was not suprising to me. I knew it for the first time that I get this task, draw differently, that means getting out of your comfort zone to create free art, that's the only way we can improve ourselves.

Reflective Q&A: 16th June

 

Q: Which artist has made you think differently about drawing? And why?

A: After got into a deeper research about artist Daniel Buren, his works had influence me in differernt ways. Ideally, his concept was very inspiring that artworks could not only be presented as the mimiesis or representation of anything, but the work it self. I found it extremely excited when I get to know this, because that is just very same idea as my Self Portrait final.(Not to present my portrait by showing the figure of mine, but the dust on my sketchbook.)

Also, use of colours and stripes were very smart I think, It's pure and simple, depites the deeper meaning out of it; they are visually eyes-catching to everyone. This can be apply to my drawing in sketchbook, to deal with layout.

REM KOOLHAAS

"Delicious New York" concept inspiration.

Koolhaas tells the story of Manhattan, a ‘mythical island’ and setting of an urban experiment in which the city becomes a factory for man made experiences, a laboratory to test the potential of modern life. He claims that ‘Manhattanism’ is the one urbanistic concept that revels in ‘hyper density’ and is fuelled by the splendours and miseries than come with the urban condition of man made living.

Questioning modern fashion industry.

Demna Gvasalia

Details

General Information

Demna Gvasalia’s status in the fashion industry was cemented when it was announced in October 2015 that he would be taking over as artistic director of Balenciaga. Before that, he was the director of Vetements design group.

Details

Inspiration: "Is this fashion?"

When I saw the BALENCIAGA & VETEMENTS collection that Demna Gvasalia designed, I could not say it is bad designs. Some details are actually very interesting and inspiring to me. First, he is very good at making a "hit" in this crowed fashion industry. Clever use of famous logos and posters with some relevant slogans, and his exaggerated oversize design, it is eye-catching enough to catch the hit among the area of both high end fashion and high street fashion. The way he is judging this boring fashion industry through canceling the boundary between high street fashion and luxury fashion. You even can see normal hoodie, normal models, normal materials...Everything is normal, but it seems special in everything, because nobody are expected to see what fashion really is. Maybe fashion is a lie, maybe just a marketing promotion to make people to purchase their goods. This Boundary thing really inspired me, we shared the same opinions on that issue.

My views on Photograph

I think these collection of photography are very inspiring, to me; they really gave me some nifty sense. It is actually the element what I want in my garment. I think the tricky method on this photograph is the clever use of Mis match. The background, the buildings and cars were both straightly pointed at the same direction, and they created the several straight lines at the back. However, the main subject in this photo, the lady at the front; shaped a curve line in the middle. It made this photo have a strong visual impact and focus point to the audience. I think this kind of MIs- Match technique in photography field can do a great impact in my garment design. Which I could make my garment more playful and catchy.

Views on PC design

For this work, I was inspired by the main keynote in this dress, Flat surface, with a puffy sleeve and exposed pocket. The shape is very simple, but it could gave you sense of stability and childish at the same time. I'm very appreciated on this pattern design.

The raincoat and material inspiration.

 

The muji raincoat is well made and styled. This specifically fabric is exactly what I want, the kind of moisture and obscure texture is perfect for my project: Portable garden. That kind of futuristic and the visible living feature at the same time with this kind of semi- transparent fabric. It is perfect.

Feedback of movie

The first time I got to know the inside story of the street art field, but more importantly the movie told us the truth of the fame phenomenon in modern art industry. It made me feel that this is not a good situation for many young artist does not have the connections, contacts and resources.

Inspiration Conclusion

He abandoned the idea of painting as object and dismissed the importance of authorship. Pasting pre-fabricated, alternating white and colored vertical stripes on unconventional supports and space.

He challenged the conventional notions of where art can be seen and how it can be understood.

My impression of V&A Balenciaga show.

The show is definitely worth over than10pounds tickets cost. I got to see lots of fascinated works designed by Mr. Cristóbal Balenciaga. He's like the legendary designer at that time as well as Mr. Christian Dior, the way he used the fabric naturally draping and his signature minimal cutting really gave me the direction for my" This place" project. I started to think, if I could create structural garment using simple folding and cutting technique. After experiments, I created a series of pattern tests using only paper, through simple rolling, folding, cut out holes... inspired by Balenciaga classic cutting.

Opinions on Oskar Schlemmer

 

His illustration is extraordinary! The way he saw the human body transfigured into artificial shape, the idea was visionary and playful. The structure of these paintings inspired my garment silhouette, there will be more interesting building-inspired structures fit right on the human body. To express my idea of cities are getting over the human beings.

My opinions: Rottingdean Bazaar

They are incredible!!!!!! Most interesting artists I found for this project. For me, their works make me feel very relax and chill, what I mean is they're doing fashion and art, but more importantly is they can make people laugh and be  joyful. There are millions and billions fashion designers exist in this world, each one of them is doing something really just "fashion", But some of them, like Rottingdean; they are actually playing with fashion. Bring a little bit of fun to this world, They are trying to make other people totally feel comfortable with fashion, not making fashion untouchable and high class. The clever use of daily items like old socks, slippers, condoms, badges, quenched cigarettes  made their garment more playful.

Question for further development

 

To be able to fight against some issue and bad phenomenon in this project.

There are several questions need to be ponder:

  1. Is this project gonna be a silent protest or an aggressive one?
  2. If I want to make it more aggressive, should I pick some light and reflective materials to make my final piece? (Just like what the police wearing in the image on top.)
  3. Can I make a highly-loaded -information project in a week?

The Story of this Indian painting

Akbarnama this specific piece means so much to me in my art journey.

I found this painting when I was in a trip to India, when I was there it was the first time that I know the Indian Miniature Painting. When I came back to China, accidentally, I found there was this specific miniature painting in our national history textbook(Which is a very serious and professional book), They described this piece as " Indian Wartime" which is quiet looks like it in that way by looking at the image. Due to my curious, I researched it online, and it turns out it is stored in V&A museum, the official description is : This illustration to the Akbarnama (Book of Akbar) is the left side of a double-page composition (the right half is Museum no. IS.2:21-1896) designed by Basawan, whose name is given in the librarian's notations on the other page. The composition depicts a famous incident in the life of the Mughal emperor Akbar (r.1556–1605) outside the fort of Agra in north-west India in 1561. 

There was a huge misunderstanding on culture and I think It is a sad thing to see. I published my essay on magazine and corrected national history textbook. I also proposed a translation group on art pieces to help with preservation of international culture, and V&A approved us to collaborated.

It was the first time that I have deep understanding on Art atmosphere in UK and this event influenced so much and lead me to here in UK, to continue my art journey.
