Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
This project started the beginning of my textured/lenticular surface exploration in porcelain whilst working towards the final show of my Masters . I wanted to capture the city I live in – London. The changing landscape and urban qualities of the ever-changing capital. The increasing buildings and light changing the same scenes you can see every day, through seasonal shifts or time of day. Sometimes an area can also transform very quickly with the pace of life and lifestyles. The array of structures demonstrates the variables of London interpretations; 3-dimensional architecture and panoramic overviews. I want the sense of pace whilst finding a balance to enjoy a place that is often described as too hectic.
The nature of the objects in this mapping project focusses on geometry, abstract interpretations and the screen printing process; building with the cast porcelain results. The process of colour is built up with screens that have imagery exposed onto then that are usually employed to insight optical effects - used in my ceramic method and with texture adds to the character once they are fired. The pieces are first bisque fired then sanded and/or polished. The digital qualities of the surfaces are a deliberate aesthetic aimed to express the 21st century and visuals we are engaging with more and more.
