Information from Victoria Lobregat

Pattern is a recurrent motif, as is repetition, and geometry. The desire to embellish ourselves and the world around us seems intrinsic to the human experience. My paintings use pattern as a sensory device, and the images embedded within coloured, geometric waves and lines are of latent memories of a certain place, and of a rapidly transitioning façade.

The objects that I choose are imbued with a collective meaning as they are often domestic objects from mid -last century, and I find juxtapositions of them to my work investigate a more personal layer of meaning.

 

Studying

Take a walk in a local street to observe the different architectural styles of each home. Write and sketch your responses to the following:

What clues do you see in each building façade to suggest the era it was constructed?

What embellishments or changes can you see have taken place over time?

What sense of the people living there do you get from looking as the furnishings and garden ornaments?

 

Making

Create an artwork to capture the memories in your own home. Take a photograph of your home from outside and then print the image centrally on an A4 piece of paper. Using the blank space add colour and pattern that you feel gives a sense of lived experience within your home.

Token XXXIV, 2017

washi tape on birch plywood

60cm diameter

Information from Tania Alexander

My work explores the concept of meta painting, and it is concerned with the formal aspects of colour, geometry, materiality, composition and perception. It is process driven, and by using low-art materials from the everyday, such as hi-viz reflective shapes, I am questioning the meaning of the work, as a signifier of danger in our current western consumer driven culture of excess.

Studying

  • Research artists Jim Lambie and Sol Le Witt who use readymade materials and processes to explore materiality within their artwork.

  • The painting  Las Meninas  by Diego Velasquez's is considered a meta painting. Research the meaning of this term and consider how Alexandra's artwork explores this concept.

Making

Create an abstract composition based on a repetitive process and your own rules. Choose an everyday material such as coloured tape, (i.e. scotch, masking, packing, electrical) to apply systematically to a firm support. Develop additional works by slightly changing the rules.
