Name: Max Brown
School: King Edward VI Grammar-Chelmsford
Year: Year 12
Inspiration: I've always been interested in drawing, particularly faces and figures of people, and in recent years I've developed into printing. By doing this I can create a bolder looking piece where I can achieve new styles and colours. Such prints include linocuts, jigsaw woodcuts and dry point etchings. The pieces I've uploaded are from when I was doing the topic of impressions, a topic I interpreted as famous photographs and images associated with war and the imprint it had on the current culture. I've been interested in art from an early age, drawing a lot of the time by the age of 3. As I grew older I drew many cartoons and now, as I am in Year 12, I tend to look more at life drawing, with the exception of a few cartoons. My influencesrange from pop artists such as Julian Opie and Roy Lichtenstein to renaissance figureheads Leonardo DaVinci and Michaelangelo. I occasionally try and insert some kind of message or humour in my work, which I think reflects myself as a person as well.
Description: In this linocut, I have represented the goosestepping as an almost untelligible mass, defined by odd pertruding arms and legs. The surrounding blackness focusses on the figures, and could even be said to portray the picture as a kind of flag or film strip.
