For this I’m looking into an artist and their method on making art. so I’m am looking into Tian Haisu.
Tian Haisu is a young Chinese painter who makes art by land skating, she makes black and white paintings. She create massive scale art by using her inline roller blades this combines her love for ice-skating and art. that have a tub of paint that slowly spill onto the wheels. she uses the front wheel to create the smaller details of the piece. her paintings are black and white landscapes.
This is a video of the prosses of her making the art. it also shows how she uses the roller blades to make this art.it takes you through her making her paintings called blood-lane-line it is 40 feet tall by 20 feet wide, most of her works are on massive scales. as she does her paintings she will fill up the tub on her boots. This piece was present in the California Institute of arts, It was also a really liked piece within the show.
Before she makes her art she will sketch them out as a design. Then she will go in with the roller blades. These are some photos of her making her work. The next photos are of her beautiful works. her works are both simple yet stunning. Due to the fact she keep its in a traditional style of painting.
She uses her unique way of making art, to make traditional Chinese paintings. she used her whole body to create the art as she has to use her balance to se able to use the roller skates.
her art includes a range of mountains, trees, water and sometimes buildings that are within the landcape she is painting.
This is website that explains a little more about how she makes her work and what she uses for her art. This really shows how you don’t have to use normal tool to make traditional art.
For this I want to start working with a sketching how I can use and manipulate the background to add more ideas with time and Egyptian religion. I am going to sketch out some ideas and then try to start adding them on. but i also might just experiment with random ideas that I don’t want to use encase they work better.
Things i want to work from:
I want to take inspiration from these because:
I really like the positioning of this one. due to the fact you can not see the middle of the flower making it look more natural instead of being angle and placed.
I liked the idea you can see the middle so it would help to paint/ draw the middle of the flower if i wanted to. it does also look natural as well.
I chose this one as I love how you can see the colours of the petals but it also shows how fragile they are due to how they give the look of nearly being transparent.
This is a beautiful painting from Egyptians of their blue water lotus, I want to try and include this into the painting as this is where it has come from and I think it would be very respectful to add in some type of their style of painting.
Me Doing My Sketches:
These are some photos of me while making the sketch page from the inspiration photos I found online. I used as many different mediums as i have assess to right now (expect paint, as I don’t have any paper that can handle paint)
At first I thought I wasn’t that keen on the style the Egyptian art but now after using different style I do quite like it. Both of the flower style caught my eye. this means I want to experiment with both and see if I can involve both.
The Final Look Of The Sketch page……
This is the final look of the sketch page. this page helped a lot, just to see how each different material would look when using it for the same thing. i do like the black and white drawings but I do feel like it defeats the point in having the blue and yellow symbolism. so I feel its best to stick with a colour approach and also I feel the coloured pencils worked best even though I still really do like the felt pens
the next thing i can do is try and add them to my works within the studio as i want to use the background to influence the position of the flowers and i cant do that by practice. so for now I am going to do what I have done here with some of my other ideas.
