Finished final piece


I haven’t managed to fully realise my intentions with this project because of the space limitations, so if you can imagine these three paintings side by side with string linking them, and a large map of Britain in the background that would be good šŸ™‚ . I decided to document a journey I undertook by the faces I saw along the way, with each portrait in the series getting more and more rushed , to represent my patience waning throughout the journey, the paintings are linked by thread to show that they were in sequence and were thought about throughout the day. I think that is was reasonably successful considering that I didn’t have the resources to put all my ideas into the project.

    really interesting idea. I love the installation idea, the connection/interconnection. A piece I love in the Adelaide Museum’s aboriginal galleries is called (from memory) ‘threads of connection’. it is a long string (maybe 15 metres) made of human hair with clumps of gallah feathers (pink) in the twists. it represents connections between families and relations.

      Thank you! And I’ll be sure to check that out, sounds quite a bit more high brow than my idea
