This final work reflects my theme about nature and sustainability and has been formed from the Joy and peace I experienced on Brighton beach, I have used natural, mixed media art styles, and included found materials. Through a thorough exploration, I have taken my ideas through a digital transformation which has culminated in a physical artwork.
John Foster and Anselm Kiefer are the artists inspiring my work. Foster’s digital work of simple lines and colourisation helped me create some initial designs. I chose to push this work further testing mixed media art styles using inspiration of the artist Anselm Kiefer, Anselm creates work with natural based materials like straw, ash and other found materials. Throughout my life I have collected found objects and materials from beaches and places I have visited, so it felt natural to create a collection of squares with varying materials for this outcome.
