Name: Victoria Carr
School: The King Edward VI School
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: Currently I study both Fine Art and Textiles and enjoy them both equally; I spend a lot of time dedicated to creating and making with the hopes of having a career in Art and Design. I take inspiration from many different sources, from fashion; my favourite designers including Erdem, Meadham Kirchhoff and the late Alexander McQueen to artists traditional and contemporary alike. This year I discovered Monica Metsers who has been the main influence in my own work this year and is now one of my favourite artists along with others that have influenced my recent work such as Salvador Dali and Gerald Leslie Brockhurst. Living in Newcastle I also enjoy visiting The Baltic for the chance to see the artwork in person and look for other inspirations. Although I take inspiration from existing artists and designers in order to refine and develop ideas it is important to me that my work feels original and therefore the majority of my ideas come from my imagination inspired by anything and everything around me, I then take note of my ideas and usually combine a number of them to create one piece.
Title: Land of the Loofah
Description: This image was one of my initial photographs in my A Level Fine Art project ‘Imagine’ it is a close-up image of two bathroom loofah’s and shaving foam but many people cannot immediately tell what it is; which was the aim of both the photograph and the project. This is one of my favourite photographs that I have taken so far as I feel it appears to be something bigger than what it is such as a strange landscape.
