Going BIG!

At the start of the year, I began with very small prints and I have now decided to go huge! It’s quite tricky to print such large lino prints because you have to do it by hand and with a spoon for best results!!! My first few attempts did not go well at all, but this one turned out quite good.

FINAL MAJOR PROJECT!

For my final major project I have decided to do something quite different from what I have done before. I’m going to be exploring a more scientific and medical theme, something I’ve always been interested in. I’m going to concentrate on the respiratory system, looking at the heart and the lungs and then beyond there, looking even closer at a microscopic level. Even though the illnesses that affect those areas are awful and cruel, the scans and microscopic pictures are quite beautiful and interesting.

‘Hygge’

‘Hygge’…it’s quite a hard word to try and translate because it can mean or be more than one thing. It’s a Danish word which basically means to be cosy or to be happy. The project that I am doing now is ‘Sense of Place’ and ‘Hygge’ is quite a specific thing to Denmark. In my work I am trying to portray that sense of the ‘hygge’ feeling. Its during times like Christmas ‘hygge’ is at its highest, when you’re spending time with family and friends. That’s probably why at the moment my work is feeling quite Christmasy.
