Working towards the final degree show: 'Internal Exposure' installation

 Installation plan:

Sketch for installation plan showing multiple dimensional aspects, the idea is to represent the spiling out of the emotions and the deformation of the body

New collage piece
 alternative to the previous Intestines works:

-The piece is more sturdy and stable as I glued the separate figures on one large piece of cardboard from which I then cut out the unnecessary spaces.

-The piece also includes a 3d element: I paper-mached a hollow shape made with wire and glued it on top of the torso of one of the figures. I then also experimented with adding string that comes out of this, to further extend the piece in the surrounding space.---I was thinking more about how to exend/project the work into the surrounding space as a way to metaphorically opening up the body in space- and to combine previous sculptural work with the flatness of the collage piece.

As in my plan I included strings coming out of the works as a way to extend these in space furhter, I coated long pieces of string with paper mache which made me achieve a thicker and more corporeal effect. I combined these with the collage and sculptural pieces.

 I placed the new piece next to the previous collages I made, which I also arranged differently to convey a more organic display, which I see as all related and part of the same series


Working on the sculpture by combining the previously separate sculptures and adding the coated string to it, as if a tendril coming out of an orifice, this aims to convey a visceral, bodily quality.

A jumble of bones rearranged together.

Drawing piece:

Working on a new piece to include in the final presentation: it started as a large drawing made up of two sheets of A1 paper and developed into a cut out similar to the first collages but of a larger scale:

I used watercolour initially, which I manipulated onto the sheet of paper but largely did the composition by spilling and moving by itself. I then wotked onto the watercolour with charcoal, drawing figures I found in the shapes.

Cutting the background:

              Displaying vertically works better because it resembles an intestine more

 working onto the drawing with different materials and dimensions: paper mache, glue, layered papers, cardboard, string, acrylics and pens.

preparing some elements to glue onto the drawing/collage piece: by creating layers with acrylic, pencil and watercolour onto tracing paper

Adding more 3d aspects through paper mache and modrock- creating a sort of relief, and adding more textures with cardboard

 physical tests in space with the piece:

placing the piece in the corner highlights the broken border between three-dimensional and two-dimensional:

Publication series 1 Harlequin and the Double 3 pieces centred on the theme of  tranformation and the double identity, through the study of the figure of Harlequin 1 :  Experimenting with different materials as well as the shape of a triptic piece, in order to show three aspects of identity and the gradual metamorphosis of a face, Plus, the shape of the standing work induces the viewer to turn the work around 2 :   A long trace of different sheets of paper stitched together reveal themselves in a whole figure once the piece is opened 3 :  An accordion structure book depicting a single figure on each side. It is intended as an illustration to the accompanying poem 'The Doppelganger' by Heinrich Heine. Both of the last two publications are comprised of two different painted sides, showing  the traditional character with his colourful suit and light spirit on the one side and his devilish side on the other, represe

Fragmented combines- Double identity/ nationality

Combining place and identity- the figure and the landscapes linked to its identity, through the use of the fragment and juxtaposition. Transparent surfaces: Creating juxtapositions by painting both surfaces of the glass with a figure and a place: Tape and paper: I have mainly used the process of painting by adding and removing paint, through the use of tape, in order to combine two different images and create layers. Using different mediums for the various layers, (pen, watercolour and acrylic paint) allowed to achieve an effect of transparency.     Collages: This process led me to create collages by destroying completed paintings of different landscapes, and combine them to create new compositions, which result contrasting and abstract.
