TASK TWO: Pattern Form and Print





Lucienne Day Print called Ducatoon 1959   ( top image by Cornelia Parker )

Visual language Task 2 for Tuesday wk 18th October for 3 weeks

Evolve your visual investigation begin to consider Print and Pattern in your drawings - either of your object or a new object = -or a new path of PLAY, you choose.  ( Painting below Cy Twombly )

Examples to consider for further exploratory practice
Make Plan views, try rubbings and block printing - repeats - designs on a sheet that evoke or are an extension from last weeks idea - feel free to go off on a new route if you wish or ideally go DEEPER into your current working progress - MAP your objcet or PLACE - give it body and sense - show it 

Evolve alternate perspectives on the 'drawn' images you have tried so far - Pattern Shape Print & Outline ( remember my SCARF analogy )

Also as a suggestion not a task - you may want to begin to incorporate  text and langauge into the pieces - hand lettering or collage or Prose ?
This may be simply notes and observations ?
Or more a considered part of the design and pattern - the 'word' may introduce a 'concept to the images and pattern or a sense of narrative?

Look at the Ceramic pieces with text and narrative by the Artist Grayson Perry, and also Prints and books by Richard Long, Hamish Fulton and Mary Kelly's Post Partum document 

Get out of the smaller sketchbooks and use the A2 and A1 sheets as WORK SHEETS for mapping and planning ( annotate them with observations etc ) and also presenting more final drawings as well on sheets

Research designner and Artists like Lucienne Day, John Piper, and Cornelia Parker and also Rachel Whiteread planning works - look at Artists & Designers work sheets on google - plans and design sheets for Textiles, Weave and Cloth and Printed Wallpaper Sculpture and Fashion & Product design working sheets - historical ( Da Vinci ) and contemporary to aid compositons

Bring examples to Tuesdays session of your contextual research - make print outs for your journal files - to show one another  (not to show me but to show one another)

Working studio day for you on Tuesday ..... access to me for informal Tutorials from 11.30 pm
( no pin up just heads down working ) 
For drawing and Pattern and Form look at Louise Bourgeois above & for texture and paint look at Teresa Oulton( both here ) http://www.marlboroughfineart.com/artist-Therese-Oulton-34.html
