School: Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School-Blackburn
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I am a diverse artist, in that I enjoy working in many different types of media. Painting-wise I especially enjoy painting in the style of Caravaggio using chiaroscuro and tenebrism to a great effect. I also enjoy photography in which I am also majorly influenced by Caravaggio and also Da vinci's research on the golden section. Recently however, I have been working on much more contemporary pieces, such as the one I have shown here. I have been researching Tracey Emin and have also looked into the style of trompe l'oeil with which I have experimented in many of my pieces.
Description: This work is an autobiographical piece in which I have experimented with scale and symbolism. These are large scale Post-it notes, arranged in such a way as to simulate dropping off a wall after being stuck on for a long amount of time. It is to do with revision and how sometimes it can get the better of you, obviously this is something I have been dealing with recently during my A-Level examinations. I think that the brightness of the yellow draws the viewer in and catches their attention immediately. Then, when they have been ensnared, they are able to walk around the installation as to symbolise the way one has to know the ins and outs of a subject whilst revising to fully understand it.
