Some students begin a project with enthusiasm, but are unable to maintain this for the duration of their project. Abby’s A2 Coursework submission remains detailed and comprehensive throughout. Keeping to a consistent presentation style, Abby produces page after page of beautiful visual and written investigation.
These A2 sketchbook pages show the development of curving, organic sculptural forms, inspired by Henry Moore. The simple technique of wax resist (crayon drawings with washes of dye), results in an eye-catching page: quick and confident recording of ideas on paper.
This work explores Kate’s frustration at arriving at a 'pretty' result, when she longs for meaning. In addition to the finished work, she shares photographs of the work in progress, providing carefully composed glimpses of the making/creation process. This image wraps meaning within in it; a captivating portrait, from which we cannot look away.
This sequence of work (primarily Kate's A Level Art sketchbook pages) shows experimentation with media and the exploration of compositional ideas. Artist influences are chosen cleverly: seamlessly integrating with her own aesthetic.
