pataphysics in daily life — condensed poetic voodles — spacetwo videoblog

there was a mention of pataphysics in one of the mu-mesons' videos we've been watching over the holidays. reminded me of Sam Renseiw's spacetwo videoblog. nice to see he's still making them: "the fine art of 'pataphysics in daily life. condensed poetic voodles. A video blog by sam renseiw"

'Pataphysics, an absurdist concept coined by the French writer Alfred Jarry, is a philosophy dedicated to studying what lies beyond the realm of metaphysics. Defined as: "The science of imaginary solutions, which symbolically attributes the properties of objects, described by their virtuality, to their lineaments"

week 1 discussion points - basic concepts underlying Western philosophical thought

general questions (any era)

>> ... it would be interesting to hear people's experience of individual artworks--have you ever seen an artwork that moved you, disgusted you, interested you, disinterested you...? If so, why? What was it about that artwork that was effective / ineffective?

an artwork that moved me:
Ben Quilty's "After Afghanistan" series of paintings - example, his Captain S After Afghanistan painting. the pose and expression on the face and application of paint in such thick strokes and the mix of colours and expressive marks/brushstrokes & use of light and dark/shadow evokes strong emotions in me — in both the technique of the painting and the subject and meaning behind it.

today's drapery study drawing

today's drapery study/drawing. I'm happy with how the fabric drapes over the edge of the box. though now I see the photo I can see parts in the middle & top that don't match reality & the tones are bit out but hopefully they still have the feel of draping fabric. back to painting next week.

VSW13 sculpture class finished

I've finished my contemporary sculpture class, VSW13. it was very interesting, though I had some setbacks at home during this class. results should be in within next couple of weeks. I feel I still have much to learn about sculpture and there were many things I would have liked to explore further, such as more installation, digital/online sculptures, sound sculptures and more molding and casting. I really enjoyed making molds and casts of fabric to try capture the folds, and to explore transforming the fabric from soft -> hard and temporary -> permanent. it fits well with my drawing/painting class on Saturdays. it was interesting to explore everyday materials as they were more accessible (& cheaper) in most cases

next up is VIS18 - an art history subject, so it's less hands-on making and more research & essay writing.

Over Here exhibition

I haven't made it to the "Over Here" exhibition as it's in Perth (and I'm not), but a classmate posted the online catalog - one to keep in mind for my materiality class exercises.

Over Here : NYISZTOR STUDIO (391 Canning Hwy, Melville, Perth)

Tracing Materiality exhibition

we went along to the Tracing Materiality exhibition on Sunday. the artists had been doing some continuous drawings on large rolls of paper, as well as wall drawings, and working with wax. I'm going to try make it to the talk on the 20th march too. I loved all the work! and there was a stack of drawing books for me to chase up also :)

first drapery study

after the still life, I worked on a drapery study - I keep typing this as drawpery! I had my "aha" moment towards the end of the second week's class, so will start a new one next week. I had been trying to draw more expressively and scribble and smudge with my finger, but my teacher said to draw individual lines as they convey more information. individual lines is my natural way of drawing, so I'll go back to this next week. it was hard to erase some of the original marks I'd made. I was getting the hang of it by the end of week 2's class, so will practice more next week

finished VAR100 - starting VSW13 intro to sculpture

I handed in my last/third assessment for VAR100 yesterday. this is the last week of class. and also it's O-week for my next subject VSW13 Fine Art Studio Materials (intro to sculpture). I don't know much about sculpture apart from what I've learned in VSW100 & VAR100, so I'm looking forward to learning more and finding out where/if I might fit into the sculpture making mode. I think I'm tending towards etextiles / installation work / technology but also "slow" work, but perhaps I'll be surprised with something new as I have been in previous classes. they've all been eye opening, especially the artist research (even if I write it up too slowly - am working on writing it up straight away for this class, this helped in previous class)
