For the final assignment I plan to use discharge and dye on denim. My inspiration originally began from the catalogue of 2013 RBC competition finalists. I was intrigued by the process and the results of the piece by Rachelle Sawatsky. Her use of non traditional techniques, employing ink, fabric dye and bleach on demin allowed for some very unexpected results. I was also attracted to the modernist style, the open space in the piece and also the bleeding of colors remind of the work of Helen Frankenthaler. Most of my inspiration comes from reading a variety of art magazines, Saatchi online also introduces me to a variety of artists as well. I feel attracted to working abstractly , using variety of materials in a painterly way and to use my own intuition as a guide. After much research (and a failed study with bleach alone) I’ve finally sourced materials and very excited to get started. I plan to create work that feels open, minimal, and leaves the viewer asking questions. For me is all about the process.
Hope this idea meets the criteria
