Name: Nicola Stone
School: Old Palace School of John Whitgift
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I love music, performing and the arts and recently took part in a musical at a local theatre. In the week of the show, I noticed that between numbers, everyone in the dressing room crowded in front of the mirrors. The bright dressing room lights seemed to enhance the vibrant colours of our costumes and makeup, whilst casting the background into shadow. This reminded me of a project I completed at AS based on Chiaroscuro. In this piece I have tried to recreate the reflections I saw in the dressing room mirrors.
Description: Each image has been produced in a different media; (from left to right) batik, pen and ink, mixed media, acrylic painting and silk painting. I have joined all of the pieces together and added strips of lights at both ends of the whole piece to create the impression of a dressing room mirror.
Medium: mixed media
