This term I have a wonderful instructor by the name of Yam Lau.
He's an established artist here in Toronto and in parts of China. (yes, also go search him up)
First assignment, paint the interior space of our studio, a la Matisse & Duffy. Loose, fluid rendering.
She's a wonderful artist I learned about in my Critical Issues course, you can go ahead & search her up, and check out her website, if you're fluent in French.
I had a final project for my drawing course last term, as aforementioned in this blog, and it did not turn out so well.
I just didn't give myself the chance to do fantastically. Chose to paint instead of applying drawing techniques, used really crumbly old books, was way too ambitious and didn't give myself enough time to execute the plans. It was just all rushed & in desperated need of polishing.
"The Secret" acrylic, collage, book.
First time I decided to do a (part of a) piece on queer issues.
I guess I feel as though the more we talk about it and secularize it, the more "unnormal" we're making it. It's not like people do art about "straight" issues.
Sex is sex, and that's complicated enough.
Here's a secret, I have telephonophobia.
or, more accurately, a fear of speaking on the phone, not the concrete object itself.
(working as a receptionist one year when I was 16 caused me a lot of anxiety)
Watercolour (not a good idea) with mixed media on vellum. part of my 2009 drawing course.
