Recently I have been going to offsite show exhibitions at the Hart Lane Studio’s, London College Of Communication and the Memorial community church (which displays over 40 students works from Camberwell 1st year painting). By going to these exhibitions it has influenced me into other forms of materials and processes I could use within the development of my own work. At the wicked not to care? exhibition at Hart Studio’s I really enjoyed the way that the artwork was presented within the warehouse. In a way it gave a sense of old vs new and how they interact with each other. What I have learnt about the materials and processes that the students from Chelsea BA first years have used is the way they have worked with both simple and complex ideas which work so well when looking around the warehouse. Furthermore when looking around the Hart Lane Studios it allowed me to see how the different type of artworks from the idea of paintings, film making, sculptures interacted with each other. In this way that allowed me to see the different decisions that were made into the way the artworks were set out and which ones connected more towards another piece of work.
In addition when visiting the exhibition at LCC I really loved how it liked to the idea of political conditions and the way the students responded to it within different materials and processes such as tearing, working on large scales, creating 2D and 3D sculptures, film making etc. When looking around at the different pieces of work it was great seeing the interlinks between different pieces and seeing how they respond to one another. Both the Hart Lane Studio’s and the LCC exhibition created a very warming environment when going through each section of the exhibition. Furthermore when going to the Long Live The New Flesh exhibition at the memorial community church in Beckton it also created a very friendly environment. I definitely enjoyed the way that the different pieces of work were set out. The main things that stood out with all of these exhibitions, was the vibrancy of the colours, the way things were reconstructed and constructed, the relationship between the person and the object. When having a re-look over the exhibitions it has allowed me to ask myself more questions about my work such as:-
- What relationships does my work have with other people’s work?
- How simple or how complex would I like my work to be?
- In what ways would I like to link two different materials and processes together?
- What types of scales would I like to use for my next piece?
- What type of environment would I like my work to be placed in and why I have I chosen to place it there.

Furthermore I also visited the ‘Unwritten Thoughts’ exhibition by Lisa, Robin and Alisha and the ‘Seize Something’ exhibition by Jack, Nelson, Zachery and Billy. By going to these two exhibitions it encouraged me to see how the different environments interacted with their works and comparing/ contrasting the safehouse (old victorian house) and the Harrow Arts Centre. Also by going around each section of the exhibitions it allowed me to see the narratives and meaning’s that were created within each piece and see how they linked to the titles. In addition it was great talking to the Chelsea BA Fine Art students (first years) because it allowed me to gain a better understanding of the works. Many questions came up such as:-
- What inspired you to create this work?
- How did you come up with these ideas?
- How did the developments of your work take place?
- What types of problems did you encounter when creating the pieces?
- How would you develop the work further?
