Finally it’s here; June.
Is it really the end, of one of the heck journey, I’ve just swum through? A year at the College? In Oxford?! ♥ With an amazing Teachers I could think of?! ♥ And, crazy people (some more, some less) but all mature (some more, some less) 😀 with the same passion for Art & Design?!♥ Some dreams do come through. Even for someone like me. I’ve learnt so much. I remember, at the beginning, when we were showed all different sketchbooks from previous year, thinking: how could they managed to do so many different projects on this level. Now it is time for newbies think exact same thing!!! I do love the idea ( of course only in my head) to be an inspiration for someone else. Let me dream a bit more. uhmmm … … . Ok, I’m done. For now anyway.
Must be said. June – final piece.
How we could come up with only one idea after that fulfilled year of inspiration, encouragement, support and feedback? Impossible. Mission Impossible. That’s the part I relied the most on feedback of my classmates. Always supportive and understanding as if they were my tutors. I can’t thank enough to them for everything they said, made, gossiped, laughed, sh*tted… also encouraged, believed and simply being there. It’s been privileged get to know them and spend time with them.
Back to my FP; I had three ( actually four) ideas I was thinking of doing and had to choose one, that was the hard part. I decided, after I’d spoken to one of my teacher, when she gave me the simplest resolution. She said to me: “Why don’t you combine them all together?”. I told you I’ve had the best teachers ever. Clever. Because I had made them before, separately, I could use a photoshop to layer them up and see how it will look. It wasn’t that bad. And my brain, full of the ideas, could rest. As I went through research, I connected my FP to spirals, circles and lines, inspired by Fibonacci, Jean Tinguely, Robert Mangold, and my mixed media hero Marta Lapkowska (she is an amazing artist; you can check her work on https://www.youtube.com/user/MaremiSmallArt). I worked hard on a composition. I was worried overdoing it as I usually do. But I enjoyed and loved it. And also learnt from it. I am a person of darker colours and small sizes, I challenged myself. I went for bright, vivid, and metallic colours and main piece in A1 size plus the rest a bit smaller that A4 sizes. The biggest work I’ve done so far. Am I proud? Yes. More for the challenge I put myself through. I think, I also gained some confidence in my work, through the course. It ‘s still my weak spot but working on it as well. 🙂
I’m still not where I would like to be one day but I’m on my journey. So should you. Don’t be afraid to put yourself on first place. Go for whatever makes you happy. It’s your life and it’s never to late.
Here is my Spiral Acrymme:
This is it; on the college wall
Here is the work before I applied black gesso and again metallic paints to the glue surface. I probably should finished here. What do you think?
Dream by Eva Jancarova
As a bulb, broken into a thousand pieces,
as a reflection, hidden in a glasses,
as a forest carpet, made by green moses,
as a mime, created many different faces.
As a dragonfly, stood on the water,
as a galaxy with a Sun in the center,
as a secret, written in the letter,
as a placebo, made you feel better.
As a paradise, unseeing in real word,
as a wisdom, having you get old,a
s a no-swimmer, looking for the ford,
as a homeless, dreaming of being Lord.
