Today (February 2, 2022) I spoke to Jonathan about what could be useful to do until the upcoming Unit 1 Assessment. We have discussed that there are some areas that are useful to explore for my work. Paper collages, although I am not happy with them, were an important part of my experimenting process because they lead me to a material collage that was much more interesting to make. This process also made me meet another artist, Csaba Filp. The dialogue and time spent together was useful for me and I find it important to make myself meet other people more often and spend less time working alone. The drawing I did together with my small daughter was also an important part of my learning because it made me realize how much I like to make things together with her. I could write more in my posts about my feelings towards certain artworks of my own. I could try to make more paper collages by tearing up paper parts or cutting out paper forms more precisely or using the scale difference of various forms.
I am contemplating on painting on top of some of my abstract backgrounds and this idea could be tried out and experimented further. The fact that I wrapped up one of the shoes which were found in my father's sneaker stores can also be implemented further into another form or installation experiment.
