This assignment was to create ten separate but cohesive works within two weeks. It was hard to choose a top three from this project, due to the fact that I feel as if many of the pieces are still developing and feel unfinished. Even though I felt this way, I received positive feedback from my peers on almost every piece. This made it hard to distinguish which pieces were truly the top three. I ended up picking the three I did because these three felt finished to me. They are simple, rustic, and everything I like. My approach to this project was really just to go with it and get it all done. I would be inspired by things I found around the barn, and would take them and use them in my work. Hemp was a recurring factor mainly due to the fact that I have a very large roll of it and nothing to do with it, and also because I like how it looks when incorporated into the works. My plans from this point are varied. I want to explore the clean-yet-rustic look of the wooden plank and hemp. I want to experiment with different sized canvases and wrapping materials; I feel as though that could lead me somewhere wonderful. I also think that incorporating horse shoes more often could become interesting as well, as I explore different uses for the shoes. Thirdly, I think I will try public installations Perhaps wrapping lampposts, trees, etc., with hemp and other ropes, taking a picture, and then removing the evidence. This would possibly be a collaborative effort with a friend of mine, who also takes art classes as well as photography. But we will see where this project will lead me, and I'm looking forward to finding out.
