Words Speak To Me

Given that I would consider this blog post to be almost a continuation of my previous one, I would advise you  to read my most recent post on imagery and the Self-Portrait prior to reading the write up below. Click here to view the previous article. *** As well as recently thinking about the 'necessity' of images, both in life and on my...

Surreal Encounters: Collecting The Marvelous

Installation shot including various works by Salvador Dali “Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.” - André Breton, Manifesto of...

Edinburgh Escapism

I recently moved to Edinburgh and am still configuring its layout and exploring the city almost a month later. I feel this sense of exploration will be constant the whole time I am here. Edinburgh is one of those cities where you are never stuck for things to do, or places to see, or areas... Continue Reading →

Berlin Berger Style

Recently I have been reading the art critic John Berger's two books 'Ways of Seeing' and 'About Looking'. Both are truly inspiring reads; Berger's insights highlight things you think or notice on a subconscious level, but had never fully come to realise yourself. He is like the stepping stone to realization. He draws out your way... Continue Reading →

And they've tried to find systems and construct the cages in which these things can be... Continue Reading →

I wanted to take a step back from everything following the pace of life during degree show period. Both my creative and mental energy had been wholeheartedly consumed and... Continue Reading →

I had a series of panic attacks last year as a result of some emotional baggage and initially they were... Continue Reading →

Doodle Galaxy (Doodle Time Part 2)

I didn't really notice the kind of doodler I was until I compiled them altogether for these posts. Given that they tend to be entirely separate and individual occurrences, I don't pay much attention to the technique or style at the time. So photocopying them from my notebook and creating digital copies was quite a sterile process for me, as it almost diluted... Continue Reading →

Doodle Time Part 1

So I think it's safe to say I have a slight tendency to doodle. I do it very unconsciously; it just kind of happens and before I know it half the pages in my notebook are filled up with drawings. I have this really annoying habit of doodling in random pages towards the back of my... Continue Reading →
