We talked about the textile art scene / fine art scene and ways of developing work / finding work / developing profile which was hugely helpful.
Marian Bijlenga - thinking about gaps and missing elements. Using the wall as part of the work.
I began this week planning to make 3 pieces which would be around 80 x 80 cm. However, once I began work on one of the pieces, I found that there were two different things happening within the composition so I decided to cut the piece up and make 4 smaller pieces out of it. Each piece now measure 40 x 40cm. I find that I try to fit too much in, so chopping it up and moving things around naturally allows for more space within each piece.
