I have now finished the section of the project where I talked to four different artists about their views on the use of Subject in a creative practice. So thanks to Jill Laudet, Bede Robinson, Jo Whittle and David Orme for there help and support.
I have managed to interview two of my planned four artists and hope to meet up with the third next week. It is starting to look a bit like I might be able to get all the things that I had planned done. I just need to plan two trips to places to explore the idea of collecting specific material and then do some work before producing my second Zine of work produced, by the end of this summer.
As I have not done much to my DYCP project on the role of Subject in my work for a little while, this is what I am planning to do.
Contact at least four artists to talk to them about the role or use of a subject in their work.(more…)
Thinking about the choice of subject and how perception changes.(more…)
First things first
Try and focus on something, it can be changed it later.
Record what I am doing without turning it into a long piece of text.(more…)
I’m starting with a blank dark grey Lascaux 977 on Bockingford paper, I haven’t done anything you can see yet. I will be looking into the use of Subject in my practice.
Today I have been working on the outline for keeping the digital diary and making a link table for linking from Instagram.
I need to think about the Scope and set down what I will be doing.
To explore the role of Subject in my painting and printmaking. A question that I have been thinking about in relation to my work for a while. To spend a period of time researching and investigating this. Some of which will be spent on theoretical research and some of it will be through practical exercises. The aim is to see if subject is a necessity in my work, in some form or if it could or should be removed.(more…)
I have sorted access to the Sheffield Hallam University Library Catalogue. While it is possible to access it with an associate membership which you can apply for I am still able to use my old login code from when I worked as an Associate.
I have been looking at books available to down load as ebooks to start with. Unfortunately items in the 709.2 range are not online so I might need to look at borrowing some real books.

I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from Arts Council England. I will be using it to research into the role of subject in my work.
