Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I have a very keen interest in Fine Art and am carrying on my interest at degree level. During my GCSE year, I was very interested in still life but then I became fascinated in portraiture and the way the human can portray stories with emotion and positioning. I work in a lot of different mediums, but I believe my strongest material is paint. At first I didn't really like using paint in my work, but looking at artists like Jenny Saville and De Kooning has helped me develop my style. Looking at their work and reading into the way they work has also built the confidence to exploit my marks and loosen my style. Also artists such as Kathe Kollwitz and Edvard Munch have developed my loose style through my wood cuts and etchings. I am also very interested in the work of Goya. As well as having an interest in Fine Art, I am also enthusiastic in photography. I mainly use film cameras as I prefer the look of the outcome and I admire photographers such as Ryan McGinley and Lewis Chaplin who use film cameras in their work.
Description: This is a photo taken on an Olympus OM10 with 35mm 200 speed colour film. The image is titled 'Isolation' because the building looks derelict almost as if its been cut off from society. People just walk past it not noticing it, as if it wasn't there. Also the way that the boxes are piled up in every window gives off the impression that the building was abandoned without a care, isolating it. I took a photo of the building because I found the symmetry very interesting and the way every room is packed with boxes. This is because the non-used building is still full, like if it had people in it, the boxes representing the people working there.
