Visual Diaries As Inspiration
This page contains links to the Visual Diaries I am required to keep as part of the visual arts diploma and also for my Degree in Fine Art. At the end of each semester I will be adding work done over that time.Visual Diaries can be an important way to show how a work transformed or changed direction. It can remind you of how an artwork was inspired and the process of how it came about. It has been a good habit to get into and using visual diaries can also inspire new work based on past exercises or practices that where successful.
Visual Diaries As History
A lot of artists never kept Visual Diaries and because of that their techniques and processes have been lost to us. That is what I love about Paul Klee, he was a teacher and an Artist and it is quite easy to follow his experiments, failures and success because he took notes, visual diaries. While I would never want documentation to get in the way of creative expression, I have found it very helpful to be able to “look back” at the way a particular artwork has evolved.
I also have links at the bottom of the page to other projects I am doing.
