From the mind map on my last post I have come up with a few idea that I could use. As by the end of this I have to create a series of paintings, I really want to do a painting on each subject within time. This could be words and ideas for example;
- Physical Decay
- Mental health Decay
- Old and New
With this I could use each word to be a painting. So each painting could be looking into another aspect of time. This would make it easier to have a bigger over look of the subject time, without making one painting with way to much happening.
My First Idea…..
This idea is what I have just touched on. For this idea I would chose about 3-4 different words (possibly questions) to do a painting about. This would lead to having a series of paintings that are all different but they would all relate to the same subject, This would hopefully make an interesting visual galleries when they are all together.
To do this I would need to do a lot of research into different subject, but at the same time keep it light so that I don’t give myself to much work and then run out of time. One thing i have looked into before and want to bring into this project is Egyptian religion. Due to their belief within the afterlife. I want to use this because a lot of people believe we only have the time we physically do on this earth, but Egyptians believe that we have an afterlife. This would be a good subject to have on all of my paintings to have a visual link to all the paintings.
This is one of my favourite ideas and something I really want to look into more. I feel this idea will be the best to present the subject of time and be the more visually pleasing when put up.
Another idea I have had is looking in to painting over time. This would involve looking into what is paint?, or what is a painting?. This idea I would have to so a lot of research for because it would involve looking so far back into time. One time that I really do want to look into for this idea is cave paintings.
I want to look into this because I think it is really interesting how we have developed painting over years even before we knew what it is (e.g cave paintings) I want to look into how paintings have changed materials wise and developed from cave painting to communicate to making religious art to show what we believe in.
I really like this idea as I feel there is a lot to look into and its looking in to what I’m doing not just painting. I feel this could be really interesting but its not my favourite idea, so I don’t know if this is one i would carry on with.
