Art & Design Part-Time
Title of work: A look into the aftermath of WW2
Throughout this year at Weston College I have been really interested in learning new skills and techniques in Art and Design from my tutors and using the workshops. I have chosen for the final major project The Journey: Ruins, however this lead me to look at WW2 and the aftermath from the war so For my final outcome I have looked to my tutors, my father’s media photos from the 1940’s and artists, J.M. William Turner, John Piper and Valerie Hegarty for inspiration. I find the jewel colours and the layered approach that I have explored fascinating as it draws focus but can also appear to hide secrets within it. I have used a combination of papers, paints and fabrics.
