ZAHA HADID AT SERPENTINE

Details

I was very impressed to see a range of paintings and drawing by Zaha Hadid. More than the ink drawings, what i found very inspiring and which connected well with my earlier work from this unit, were these acrylic works which depict cities most probably being seen through aerial views. 

Being interested in the shelters that surround us, i was very intrigued with visual representation of cities or block buildings seen from above. this is partly also because of the connection that this image has with the way the studio spaces are arranged. the block like spaces form a kind of tetris which can be comapred to that of an aerial view of a city (visual shelters).

LANDSCAPES

What mostly interested me in this book by Alexander Cozens, is the visual attraction of the landscapes created using different ink techniques.

 

The simplicity of the black ink on white paper creates an effect of shadows, which transform a plain landscape into intricate shapes, this leaving space for the viewer to interpret the image in their own way. 

Details

I was really fascinated by the use of Mylar for the ink drawings, and the effect created by having it mounted on linen. this will inspires to further push myself to use a variety of materials and different ways of composition.

"View of the Villa of Maecenas and the Falls at Tivoli" 1783

 

What i found interesting in this painting is the colours used. While thinking of the idea of shelters in my work, i became interested in the use of earthly colours, as it emphasises the idea of portraying the surrounding which inspire my work.

Details

I was interested in the variety of materials used to create these landscapes. Looking through these images, i found it stimulating to explore the positive and negative spaces created in the monochrome pictures. 

In the last one by Michael Fussell, i was inspired by the use of charcoal to portray the sense of movement of the rain. the effect created gives a feeling of agitation and chaos. I also find that the way the image was created also awakens the sense of hearing, as looking at this image i can hear the turbulence of the rain.

DOCUMENTS OF CONTEMPORARY ART - MATERIALITY

"This anthology focuses on the moments when materials become willful actors and agents within artistic processes, entangling their audience in a web of connections. It investigates the role of materiality in art that attempts to expand notions of time, space, process, or participation. And it looks at the ways in which materials obstruct, disrupt, or interfere with social norms, emerging as impure formations and messy, unstable substances. It reexamines the notion of “dematerialization”; addresses materialist critiques of artistic production; surveys relationships between matter and bodies, from the hierarchies of gender to the abject and phobic; explores the vitality of substances; and addresses the concepts of intermateriality and transmateriality emerging in the hybrid zones of digital experimentation. "
