Now, it is two days since the opening of the Degree Show at the School of Art, but it will stay open until the end of the month. This is one of my first exhibitions, and the opening of it was truly a great experience which went better than I expected.
I am actually really pleased with how my exhibition space ended up looking like, and with my artwork as well. Please come along for the exhibition if you are interested – there are a lot of great artists and some amazing artwork!
Just a short post about how my work is coming along. I am aiming to have 32 paintings in the exhibition, but there is still a bit of work to be done before I can hang them in my studio space next week. At this moment I have completely finished 12 of them and still have 2 paintings I did not even start yet, I am a little bit (a lot) stressed since I also have a 4000-word essay to deliver on Tuesday.
Anyways, here are some of the paintings I am completely done with:
Now I just really hope I have enough time so I can manage to get all of them done to the state I want them to be!
Just a little upgrade on my blog – some photos of my (almost) finished paintings I have made this semester. These four, in acrylic, are the first ones I painted and should be seen more as sketches for my work to follow, that finished works:
Here are some pictures from my sketchbook for this project and two painting studies I made before I started my first painting, the first one is in acrylic and the second one painted in oil paint:
And at last, my three paintings, the first two are basically finished, but the last one I still have to work on a little bit:
Tomorrow I am presenting my work to my teachers and fellow students for a module called Research and Process in Practice. It is a bit scary but it should be fine. I have my powerpoint presentation ready, so now the only thing that remains is to practice until I know it by heart!
This is the last weekend before our deadline, and now we are trying our best to get everything done in time. I still have a bit of work to do on my paintings, but at least I can see them getting finished.
This semester I have focused on the darkness and the light of my living room, and have tried to capture it into these four different paintings. I started the darkest one of them when it was still winter, and the lightest one is the most recent one, reflecting the light that summer is bringing.
I also have a bit of printmaking to finish so I will try to get up early tomorrow and stay the whole day in school, hoping to make some good prints out of my plates.
Here are some of my older artworks, hope you enjoy!
This is my first oil painting ever made, and I did it in a painting course in Porgrunn (Norway) held by the amazing artist Marit Saxegaard. I attended this weekend course in 2012, and really enjoyed it!
Here are some charcoal drawings and one (started, but not finished) oil painting that I did in some of her other courses around the same time:
