Meeting my friends in studio 9 to discuss on an exhibition, to express my emotions through art organized by Jasmine and Cat at Atkins-gallery, Hinckley the very building I recently saw during my studies next door at North-Warwickshire college, lower bond street. Before attending I must craft any small sculptural models, focusing on what give artists the need of love to create deep within our inspirations. Childhood memories could be a critical sense of seeing what we seen like festival events of Carnevale di Venezia/Carnival in Venice, Italy where people wearing masks for an identical feeling of fun/joy blending native-spirits of animals as were symbolism of childhood-arts like when I’d first played with blu-tac and crafted many figures of James-Cameron’s Avatar.
- Shown by wonderful characteristics of doodle-arts
- Absorbing Carnival of Venice masks helps me to craft five masks of my chosen animal carvings, decorated in festive materials of fabric-scheme
- Using handmade talents of cutting, shaping and decorated in doodle-painting giving them a perspective style of identical mysteries but with festival expression
- Carefully manipulate my resources of chicken-wiring, wrapped in modroc making them strong without breaking apart
- Happy with my mask results I’ve used mix-media arts to adapt by Carnevale di Venezia influence
