When beginning to make my two final pieces for the subject module I thought that it would be most beneficial for me to go on one of the London trips that the fine art department had to offer. I wanted to get some inspiration from some of the works of art in the Tate Modern and Tate Britain. I decided to have a good look around and photograph some of the works that I felt could influence my two final pieces in some way.
This piece by Louise Nevelson depicts a assemblage of wooden boxes with found objects placed inside each of them. The most interesting thing about this piece is that it is all painted matte black. According to the description Nevelson suggests that ‘the desparate elements are unified by being painted black, a coulour which will make any material look more distinguished’.
Based on this idea I have began to experiment with painting my sculptures all black or all one colour to make them look more distinguished.
