What were my initial plans for the final show?
Initially, I had planned for white space with three walls creating a boxed in space. The reason for this was to have a sequence of three drawings one displayed on each wall. I wanted the walls to be box shape so when the audience standing in the space they are surrounding by the work. Having been to exhibitions were this has been the case, I feel it creates a very powerful effect in itself because the large drawings with be intimidating to the audience. Also, as the viewer steps into my work, they are engulfed by them and not having other artist’s work within the same view so the audience will focus only on my work in that moment. Before Covid-19 I had thought about having a film along with my drawings. This film was a recording of myself drawing the large charcoal hands. The idea behind these was to show the relationship between my hand movements and the gestures I was creating. Although, the positioning of the film was not quite clear because of the space I wanted for my drawings. I have used ArtSteps to position the drawings in a boxed space to visually curate the work.
How have my exhibition plans have altered?
As times have changed along with the plans for my exhibition, I have decided to still have the sequence of three drawings because I feel they impose the emotions I am reflecting the best. Being able to curate a solo exhibition using ArtSteps, I am able to include my work in this exhibition. (See ArtSteps & How my exhibition plan has changed since Covid-19).
