‘The Space in Between’ – I took this as how you fill your day… You get up, dressed, eat etc. to then complete these in reverse at nighttime. I took the idea of the getting ready in terms of make up – putting on a face in the morning to show everyone else, to then be taken away at night. The white in the middle is the space in between, getting ready is a daily routine but how you fill your day changes.

’Hidden Identity’ – You do not know the identity of the person behind the mask all you can see is the beauty of it presented to us. A person may wear a mask to hide whom they really are in today’s society. In today’s day and age you have a demand to look or act a certain way some people hide their inner self behind this pretty aesthetic mask just to fit in hiding who they actually are.

Medium: two pieces 8) Watercolours and chalk pastels, A3 size 9) Pastel, A 2

 

10 – 11. Austin Richards, Cadbury 6th Form College a2 level

‘State of Mind’ – The boy symbolises an empty character. In today’s society we judge each other from our looks. There is more to someone than their appearance, depicted by the unfolding layers revealing a person’s personality behind the visible self. The division between appearance and personality is shown by this sequence and metamorphosis.

‘Losing Sense of Direction’ – The piece was originally meant to look like a bunch of dangling and tangled up pieces of thin rope. However after looking mainly at the directions of the markings on the ropes to represent different surfaces, the piece is looking more like a map with a dotted track to show where someone went in different directions. This is why people now-a-days use maps within society to lead them in the right direction instead of leading them to an endless direction making them lose sense of direction.

‘There are no Strings on Me’ – You could say that my piece shows the malfunctions within the society and became ‘discontinued’. As well as a very visual message it also shows the dark twist with a popular media company known as Disney. With the classical movie ‘Pinocchio’, this piece is also a twist on the childish exterior of the film. This artwork has the message of how society can shape people and break them to unbelievable limits. The movie shows a young puppet wanting to be a real boy, this of course is not possible within real life so it shows a boy wanted to be ‘real’ which through the eyes of a child being grown up is the best or ‘realest’ part of life. But my piece shows how it’s not so grand in the life of an adult – how the effects of rose-tinted glasses of a child can be so darkly changed when they realize how society has negatively effected our world with media, technology and impossible standards to live by. Although, even I as the artist cannot truly pinpoint the true message that’s portrayed, as each interpretation will always be individual to those who view the piece determined by their experiences and the life they’ve lived.

So what’s the true meaning?
