3302 Contextual-Studies 2

Continuing my contextual-research with another set of practitioners, studying onto “Becoming-Animal” like we are in their presence of what we feel so different as we are unique or dangerous.

Researching on Jane-Alexander, one of the most important artists in contemporary-arts enables her critical-facts into South-Africa’s reputation and spread within international-recognitions. Shares on how her artwork can express our reactions if we face our deepest-fears of mutilated forms and used to absorb her influence in my methods of dark-hybrids

  • Born in Johannesburg/South-Africa
  • Expert on mutilated/exposed skin textures
  • Key-Elements of Alexander’s genre-horror
  • Created figures in plaster then cast in fiberglass before completed in oil-paint
  • Her techniques figurative-sculptural, installation, tableaux and photomontages
  • Responded in both political and social environment
  • Prized models of Butcher Boy’s 1985-6
  • Primary theories of Xenohabilzoophobia

From Alexander’s key elements in her art-genre of horror when she is a current student at University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, when involves in shaping within exposed/mutation textures like viewing on her masterpiece called Butcher Boys been exhibited into South African National Gallery’s collection 1985-6.

  • Her three-models sitting on a bench referred as “Watchmen”
  • Mixed development of mutilated artworks of Bom-Boys 1998 to exploring vulnerability of children’s deep-fears
  • Drives them to wear animal-masks like hoods as our dark-reflections
  • Personalities of mixing with deformed-tissues

Reading David-Altmejd’s research of studying onto various resources of heady mix of magic/science:

  • Meant to build up conditions of mixed bodies of twisted states of inside-out appearance particularity head-pieces
  • Examining on Sci-Fi/Gothic-Romanticism
  • Meant into post-apocalyptic theories
  • Reflection of horrific-effects of skin-transfiguration
  • Focusing onto crude-expressionism piecing together fur/mass-produce
  • Several-limbs of inhuman DNA and infused with animal-textures

  • These criticise his primary-source of twisted appearances, even being aware of people’s reactions on mutated-development
  • Built on related evidence of Labyrinthine/Plexiglas mentioned as mirror-elements
  • Multiple-stages of evolution to affect on plaster heads are rare methods of orthogonal theories or illusion-arts

Elvira-Carrasco’s work is focused on dazzling-paintings covering her models in doodle-arts, because I did the same method on my “Elemental-Beasts” in term 1:

  • Captures her own image to be self-knowledge within representation of her needs of colour-schemes
  • Critical-leads into contemporary-arts, “FACES-PROJECT”/”Body-Art
  • Mostly a source of light-colours, psyche, human-soul, shocking/saturated and explosive
  • Cultural-expressions of digging up Mediterranean-roots
  • Best known for multi-layer effects in liquid-patterning
  • Perfect symbiosis between realism/abstraction

Searching for Sayana-Ganz who is an expert on Japanese-carving, mostly her work are focused on putting household-plastics referred as jigsaw methods to create multiple animal-forms in a directive state of movement/self-awareness.

Ganz can manipulate/assemble these beautiful-models together, she is using a similar technique of brushstroke-scheme by Van-Gogh and a response to three-dimensional in her latest-exhibition called “Reclaimed-Creations”

  • Shaping energy/harmony from old-plastics objects
  • Acts like a message of hope
  • Raised under Japanese-Philosophy of Shinto, believe of reused-objects have spirit/soul
  • Gathers in previously-used/discard plastics, transfigures them into wonders of animal-forms

Critical-facts on Ganz’s motivation:

Reviewing her methods are like a puzzle, keeps in check of what pieces were properly assigned after Ganz originated her talents at kindergarten.

I have always been interested in various forms of art, even from a young age. I developed my interest early on through sculpting with Blu Tack when I was eleven years old and would model figurines from films and TV programs. I had a specific interest in modelling the army of soldiers from the Lord of the Rings using Blu Tack and toothpicks for the armory and weapons. And from the film Avatar, creating Na'vi people using toothpick to create the texture and ripple effect bodies and tones.

It was in my second year at college when I decided to switch from IT & Media to Art & Design, leaving South Leicestershire College to start the B-Tech Enhanced Diploma at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College. I was granted to enter at Level 2 and worked hard to achieve two distinctions in my first year. The switch was the best decision I had made that year and it set my focus to select Fine Art at university. The only university I selected and wanted to study at was DMU, a dream come true!
