Original print with two photoshopped pieces of work, I liked the outcome of one of my previous piece of work where I set the print a little of scale so I then decided to do the same thing with another piece. 

After the print was made I decided to scan it into photoshop to do some editing on photoshop just to see if I could develop it further. I feel as though I’ve done a lot of work using photoshop so I want to do something different with the print pieces that I’ve done, I plan on sewing into them with different colours thread in inspiration from other sewing artists.

developed block prints with mono print. I like the developed outcomes of these pieces I really like the mono print outline effect over the coloured block prints, again I like them but I don’t think that they are finished and they could be taken further. 

I’m considering some of these to be in my final exhibition show but not sure which ones yet. I’m also planning on carrying on with this to see if I can get any more outcomes and I plan on experimenting with different backgrounds. 

block prints using family photos. I wanted to get back into printing and was recently looking at block patterns and decided to work with them and use them in my own work. I like the outcomes but I’m not sure they are developed enough, I would like to take these further by mono printing over the block prints to see if that has a better effect on them. 

John Stezaker is an English conceptual artist and his work is mostly collage focused. I really like the landscape and masks collages that he does by replacing peoples face with landscapes which acts as a mask.

I wanted to include him into my artist reference as I have recently been experimenting with facial reconstruction in my work and I think that his work has had an impact on the way that I work when looking at different imagery to use. 

experimenting with photoshop and the sub theme family. I’m now working more indepth and blending my two themes to make family reconstruction and focusing on how my family is contruscted. 
I like the idea of mixing the two themes and it gives me more of a basis to work on. I also think that the simple swirl to the faces makes this a strong finished image, saying that I want to further develop this to see if I can improve on it.

Continued photoshop experiment with coloured backgrounds.

Collage pieces with photoshop edited backgrounds in the style of Sergei Sviatchenko. I really like the outcomes of these pieces as the coloured backgrounds have a large effect, I might continue to explore with coloured backgrounds maybe with old and new pieces of work.

I was recently looking at an artist called Sergei Sviatchenko from a book called the age of collage and was inspired by his collage work especially by the use of colour. I mainly liked how he would use the black and white collage and use a bold colours background, from this I wanted to incorporate parts of his style of work into my own and this is what I ended up with. 

I like the outcomes of these two pieces but I would like to devleop other pieces further as these were sample/rough pieces. For these pieces of work I used old family photos to go with my sub theme of family and used my photos of buildings to explore my other subtheme which is structures.

Sergei Sviatchenko is a Ukrainian artist and is based in Denmark. I liked his work as I think the old images that he’s chosen to use are unique and strange but in a good way, I also think that his pieces give new life to the old images that he’s chosen to use. I especially like the strong and vibrant colours that he uses as backgrounds I think they work well with the mixture of black and white collage images on top.
