Mise-en-scène

Memorial; polythene, vinyl film, electric tape, dusct tape, aluminium structure, bath stand; overall dimesions 100 x 150 x 85 cm; March 2011



Some of the comments from the crit:
-     It looks like art – when is something not art?
-     It is far from painting but has paint-like skin reference of peeling off the paint. The table is support for the painting. Also very craft like, almost beautiful where the cuts are made, sense of human engagement.
-     Quite a mad (schizophrenic) piece, almost emotional in that sense. Obsessive nature of the work seems to deal with emotional response to womanhood, domesticity, motherhood and the market pressures felt in this regard. Praying on most anxious feelings. Cuts could also be read as aggressive as in Lucio Fontana's work. It is not humorous in a way Angela de la Cruz’ work can be, not a joke piece.
-    There is a sense of occasion/festiveness here; seems quite spontaneous.
-     Greedy seepage, it wants to impose itself on the surroundings.

Restructured / Destructured

I am intrigued by possibilities of transposing the work further. Can I recapture the key elements through photographs or photomontages or just plainly rework the acutal pieces so they are offered another life where they can become something else? 

I am fascinated by the recycling and subverting the structures, refusal of the fixed and permanent. I guess it is not enough to just use the temporal materials, even the solid elements are interpolated, restructured and destructured.

This piece was recycled in the purest meaning of the word. It actually ended up in the bin and then lovingly rescued it just before the bins were emptied.

Migration

I took part in an outdoor exhibition Migration at the Newton Park campus of Bath Spa Uni. The artworks address the theme of ‘Human Interaction with the Environment’ and aim to to encourage students, staff and the wider community to take advantage of the beautiful natural
landscape.

The concept for my work was inspired by non-spaces, where the outside is borrowed like in shakkei lit. 'borrowed landscape' to draw the outer landscape into the immediate space by 'capturing it alive'. This collapses the view into a space that is in constant flux changing with the position of the viewer and “natural” elements.

And this is the structure in situ:




I enjoyed its simplicity which correlated with the simplicity of the concept, and a rather fragile appearance. I wish however I have designed the structure to be more mobile so it travelled to different locations throughout the duration of the show. This is something to keep in mind...

Hidden Structures in the Local Landscape

Body of drawings, paintings & prints which explore structure & colour within the local landscape. The source material comes from spaces which are usually unseen and view points that are unexplored and their relationships with the local surroundings.
