Tutorial

Tutorial with Jonathan Kearney: 3.45pm Monday 12th November 2018 Jonathan was very supportive and encouraging. Now, just a day away from the Project Proposal and blog curation deadline, I am almost ready. I have learned much by re-reading all my posts over the last year. It has been a challenge to categorise as many of […]

Tutorial with Jonathan Kearney 30th May 2018 Brief summary: Discussed all that I have been up to since the last tutorial including painting, photo-documenting and research statement. My project has been evolving – a year ahead is not too soon to envisage an outcome. There is an opportunity to show an interim piece of work at the […]

Wall

Moving forward with the GIF animations I have been doing much experimentation; creating sequences and cycles. There is so much to explore just in this very simple format, which can potentially be projected onto a wall – it offers itself to a boundless scaling up or down, to treatment according to the nature of a […]

Line

as an extension to the continued first tutorial with Jonathan Kearney I add to the sentences so far: (the painting progresses further, header image detailing line) Sentences on the line by J Waring Rago: (second draft) a line is a dot which has grown straight lines suggest structure, particularly lines in parallel an edge is usually […]

First Tutorial with Jonathan Kearney (further reflections)

This interests me in that these come straight from the artist.  The sentences themselves are food for thought, as is also the idea of making a list of sentences about my own […]

Circular

Above, the whole painting as it is now – I think about halfway along, perhaps more. I see it as being now fully a body, I see it as cultivated to a point where, if it were a biological entity, it could sustain the combined life-support functions normally carried out by separate organs such as […]

To do is to make, is to be

I feel that things are beginning to confirm themselves, clarifying the direction of my project – I am beginning to structure the proposal and shall write it up in a post soon. Jonathan’s Methodology lecture has helped in clarifying some matters that had been going around without anchor, in my mind for a long time, years […]

Tutorials

First Tutorial: Monday 30th October 2107 (9.30 am) with Jonathan Kearney I benefitted hugely from this and felt very encouraged to do all that I had in mind (I have a lot in mind and did a lot of talking – too much to write here) and more. In particular, I see that it is important […]

Reflection

  Here below begins my contribution, as a painter, to a research project that’s exploring and defining what art is in the digital age. The word reflection was put to us by Jonathan Kearney during the MAFine Art (Digital) first group chat yesterday: I responded by saying that I see reflection as the bending back of something […]
