The Life of a Space
Some of my favourite times at school are spent simply considering the piles of work produced by students in these rooms. Some of the work shown here will soon be assembled into a student exhibition of little figure sculptures (grade 9s and 10s), and the high-coloured poster figure images which will be put in frames. Over my 20 years teaching art these rooms have acquired a history...layers of materials...so many projects. New projects/assignments are continually invented....so many things are possible repetition of the tried and true is not necessary. All of this influences what I do in my own art as well. I think the idea of using coloured papers for collage landscapes started here. We will do small collages next and use up some to those painted papers made over the years.
