The Contextual Fibre Arts Show went very well and I was happy to meet those who showed up to view my work. And more shout out to all my friends who modeled for me, It really help my piece come together!
This Semester started off in a mad rush of classes, student groups, and getting my schedule organized, in addition to the always-loved doctor appointments. It's about three weeks into my fourth and final year at ACAD and I have come to a lot of conclusions:
- I have a lot of ideas (possibly too many but here are a few basic ideas) --ceramic wall pieces with contrast between feminine and masculine traits -incorporating fabric or metal?--sculpted busts of myself and some peers--performance work about mental states/illness, and anxiety--a bronze piece about depression
- I took on too many classes and as a result I will be dropping my 400 level ceramics class to free up some time in my schedule to work efficiently and without unnecessary stress.
- My friends are an amazing support to me and I am extremely grateful for their help and kindness.
I am heading off to the 1000 Miles apart Conference in Winnipeg October 1-3rd!!!!! I am so excited to be heading over there with my friend Mabel who will be flying with me and sharing a room with me at the motel (Prepare for silly selfies on Instagram). there will be a bunch of amazing demos and talks given over those few days and I am really looking forward to see what inspiration i get from the artists. I have one of my new carved vessels in the show there and I will take photos as proof!
I also had the amazing experience to attend #Campfest15 which included some amazing speakers in the art and design fields. I can honestly say that those talks will change the way I think about my work and the future of my artistic practice.
