Art & Design Level 3 Year 1
My FMP started with my idea focusing around decay of the human body, and after careful consideration I decided to link my work to an artist movement known as vanitas. Not only did I research this at the beginning of our project, it also symbolises life and death as well as the transience of life. Although I chose this more for the style of their work, which mainly consists of vintage scenery and bones. To add to this, their choice of still life-based work is fascinating as it allowed me to use the specific style I wanted within my final piece. I chose to create this with coloured pens (great for blending) and paint, I feel this gave it a sleek look.
