Jamie talk week notes

Satire of art  school

Brain nuron
Making fun of the viewer
Loaded comma
Colour blindness Test
Human nature to perfect
Be confused – draw people in to make the work
Interested in the way we become absorbed in a thing y k
Jamie is more of a social event
+- cancel each other out
Do and don’t !!! Limbo total confusion !!! What are the translations??
Take all the dots off and count and colour code them
Adopt things from collaboration
Polite vs not
Missing a cultural barrier -Korean parents?? Nz very sorry !!! “I’m sorry” very sorry Always sorry
Chair saying please sit down very strange — a chairs purpose is to be sat on …
What is most interesting to you ?
What are you doing next?
Difficult to participate because the messages are so mixed. Mental conflict have to be wilful to Engage
Structural context
Disguised like a bunny !!! – doooo itttttt
What are you going to do next !!!
Humour to deal with a awkward situation
Throw people
Comfy couch but it has fleas THANKS ALOT very contradictory !!!
Imperative -Simon says put your hands on your head.
Like the use of txt and translation
Txt belongs onside not mixed in between -txt is normal
Don’t have the translations Korean take a dot off English put a dot on !!! Cultural divide
Installation and painting
Reading is embedded in the installation
Text Flips back and forwards “it’s perfect” -Anna miles
Like colour expand the colour range or simplify
Chromatic complexity eye popping
Playful aesthetic up beat cheerful !! Silly but the messages are satirical very uncomfortable
Mucking with instruction
Drive people mad – torture cultural misunderstanding cannot follow the instructions.
Would you be interested in chromatically altering the colours optical blending optical illusion
Not about the colour about the language !! And confusion
What other uses are confusion used for
Blind assumptions automatic assumptions
 Peter shelger
Sarah hues
Emelia bedelia
“Draw the curtain “
“Wrap a present “
“Dress an chicken”
Confrontational but Benign
Cheerful that people are confused
Completely confused but like ” having a good time?”
Perverse people might thing the lettering is really rough tidy lettering or completely messy
“Do not count the dots” but there are no dots !!??? What????
Pleasantly confused

Stacey Talk week notes (transferred from previous blog)

unfinished look ?

drawing vs painting hierarchy ?

giving up feel

victorian dolls > the more pattern on your clothes the higher class you are

how do you make art ?

push and pull of paint ?

the most important parts of a painting are finished

why are somethings completely unfinished and others completely finished ??? why not underpaint the whole painting ????

play factors off against each other ??

scruffy background vs porcelain

how do things hang on the wall ??? nails ?? (i like the rough nails)

reclaiming reusing things that would be left to decay

possibly two ideas present in staceys work ???

psychological effects of dealing with morbid material and ideas ??

trust that the ideas come through on their own ???

acrylic with an additive

Amber ? Talk week notes (transferred from previous blog)

Pot plants however they have died 😦

flower perishing

core samples

dried flowers

what is the purpose? (what a stupid thing to ask)

what is the relationship between the plaster and the seaweed and the size of the objects ???

location on the floor ???

sample dish size – to be effective there needs to be more

museum preservation ????

“closer to nature or further apart”????\

topographical reading

previous works were something that looks soft but is made from a hard material

pillow shaped – the work would be more successful if the pillows were larger ??

visual trickery bronze, latex materials that look natural however they are not ?

gathering and taking to a foreign site

is the seaweed sentimental?

think about the relationship between your materials

deception we think there is a sense of intimacy between the artist and the materials ?

could relate to experimental dyes ??? onion dye.?? beetroot dye??.

tapping on the surface of an idea ???

Orrin Talk week notes. (transferred from previous blog)


i talk quite a lot with Orrin about her work and she helped me with the set up of my talk week work.

broken crosshatch form > talks about mark making

conversation between the two paintings> one is a response to the other

framing within a frame

raked lines- additive rather than subtract

personal interest in markmaking – methodical mark making

tension in the line> bumping and grabbing

line etching broken down. ? changing direction of the lines> frantic nature of the line

materiality completely different needs to be a closer response to the works ( i personally don’t think this)

“will it make sense by itself”- Toby Raine

take the works apart in isolation > is the work strong enough to stand by itself?

smaller work is Orrins new direction ?

no set goal to the final image ? more successful !

Orrin’s energy shows throughout her work~

 How do you come to the final image ?

colour conversation, colour response, colour restriction are all themes in Orrins work

the boarder + or – lighter pink framed by the green ? ( i was on to something but forgot)

green is a response to the pink.

earlier work block colour field large scale = “natural form”

utterly different painting smaller pink obtrusive semi veiled painting more interesting without pink line.
