Slinkachu’s work has focused both on photography and art installation. He has created “the little people project” which he remodels and paints minature model train set characters. He places them in a street, photographs them and leaves them where they are. His work involves humour and surprise. This is what I want to do when creating my photography work for the degree show. I want to use small dolls and put them in an everyday situations that people would usually encounter such as being out of the street, going to a tea party etc. I want to bring a sense of childhood and play within these images, as if the dolls are actually living as humans, like within my artwork I want people to second guess the work and come to their own conclusions of what the work represents.
‘Rosalind produces sophisticated and purposeful work. Serious, innovative and intelligent, Rosalind is an artist of great integrity and vision.’
Her work crosses through many diciplines such as drawing, painting, installation and sculpture.
Her paintings and drawings act as a starting point that connect and disconnect both physical and psychological boundaries, where complex interior and exterior spaces are collaged together and abstracted.
Rosalind Davis is a permanent curator at Collyer Bristow gallery.
The main this that stood out within her lecture to me was the fact that she kept stating that it will work in our favour to keep being polite and respectful to clients and to keep in touch with them to have the possibility of working on future projects with the clients. Always say Thankyou.
This is an installation that had been placed on the second floor in the open eye gallery. I was particularly drawn to this piece because within my art practice I create installations and was looking for inspiration to move my ideas forward. I think its interesting how every-day items which you would see on a regular basis becomes so significant when communicating a message to the viewers. There has been clever ideas used such as when I lifted the phone I could hear someone talking down the other end of it, also on the television there was a video playing on a loop; I like the idea of the video possibly meaning to be the most important part of the installation yet at first glance I noticed the whole space and objects surrounding it, it really gave a sense of intruding someones personal space, it felt like I was instantly drawn into that narrative and that is exactly I want to do when creating my artwork for the degree show; I want people to be drawn into the whole space rather than just one particular object. This is another piece that inspired me because of the way the magazines have been displayed; it’s a unique way of exhibiting the pieces but it ties in with the theme of the magazine and that is something I should consider when working towards the degree show.
