INTERFUSE

A week ago today I attended INTERFUSE, an exhibition held by fellow students in the Gallery North Project Space. Art students host exhibitions all the time, but what was special about this one was the fact that it blended the work of both Northumbria and Newcastle University students together. To my knowledge this has never been... Continue Reading →

Auction Preview Night

So last night was our Preview Night in preparation of our Fine Art Auction next Tuesday. One week to go (drum roll please!) The team did a brilliant job of putting the work on display. Having been one of the people to run around collecting multiple artworks from all over the place I had kind of... Continue Reading →

Auction Piece

'Sail Away' So that is my piece finally done for the auction. With all the other preparation I've put into this I hadn't actually had much time to think about what I was going to submit. I always find whenever I try and make art for a purpose, it adds a different kind of pressure... Continue Reading →

Allowing people to formulate their own ideas and interpretations? What kind of art are you making if it... Continue Reading →

Painting Digression

It's strange when I think how I used to consider myself as an artist. I was adamant painting would always and forever be my one and truly love. How wrong I was...As much as I love painting, it really does have it's limitations. Not in the sense that all painting is bad, it's just sometimes not the right means... Continue Reading →

Those Days

I'm going to be using art as a metaphor here. And yes, it's a metaphor for life. For the real world. For being scared and growing up. To me, the ultimate is doing what you love everyday. There is no point doing what you are doing if you are burdened by it. Of course, we... Continue Reading →
