Self Portraits and Mixed Media
We have been investigating self-portraits by a range of artists. We used mirrors or photographs of ourselves as a starting point for developing own unique self-portraits in mixed-media.
The class have been learning about the installation work of artist Cai Guo-Qiang; considering the display space and scale of an artwork; creating a scaled-down version of an installation similar to Guo-Qiang’s gunpowder drawings. We were incredibly impressed with the finished results and the class showed fantastic team work throughout the designing and making process.
