For this week’s assessed piece we were asked to make a maquette illustrating our intentions. Now although maquettes are usually scale models of a larger final piece of work, I decided to bend the rule slightly and make a maquette out of a novel, thinking that this would serve as a good metaphor for a journey, and would give me a good material to paint on.
As the photographs show, I have painted an ‘A’ on the front page and a ‘B’ on the back page to make the idea of a journey very clear to the viewer. Between these letters there is a solid black line that travels all the way through the book, only interrupted near the middle, where I have painted a quick portrait of a woman, showing my intentions to document a journey by the faces that I see along the way.
