This week I dismantled my Exhibition, got my Diploma, moved back home and went out to celebrate my Summer freedom so all that has kept me busy and is the reason I have been unable to make posts but Im back and here is a selection of my work from my Final Major Project.
For my Final Major Project I focused on the theme of "Carnivals", using the title "Fairytale Freakshow" I combined fairytale characters with sideshow acts to create my own unique carnival themed posters and paintings. I researched different characters and their various acts that took part in these performances. I also produced a loose body of preparatory studies, photography, photoshop work and prints. I then developed these individual characters to represent a Carnival act by using inspiration from fashion couture collections such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix and original fairytales such as Alice in Wonderland and Rapunzel.
I recorded my research and experimental studies in an A3 sketchbook and regularly evaluated my work in a reflective diary and recorded my techniques and processes in a A4 sketchbook. I also completed a contextual reference report which contained all the artists, exhibitions and designers that inspired me throughout my project.
