Inspiration | Creating fashion film Annie Oakes
I have collaborated with Youdunno S to create a set for the collection of garments made by Annie Oakes. 

For the set i wanted to develop ideas with acrylic to be used as props. It would be great to be able to print these out on a giant scale, however because of the machines available the largest scale i can do is a3. Adi Goodrich is still one of my favourite set designers, every shoot that she creates is fun, colourful and initiative. i want the set to involve shadows and reflections from the artwork.

Instead of printing on rectangle pieces of perspex i thought that this would be a good opportunity to experiment with random shapes i drew the shapes on my screen blind. Raw in shape but smooth and soft in colour. I used my photographs of colour from the practice unit which i thought would complement Annies collection, i also added a few blue to contrast just incase we wanted to use them in the set. With previous examples on the perspex i have printed very vibrant and saturated colours for this collection i felt it was appropriate to lower the transparency so the colours are very subtle. Reflecting the themes in the collection.

artificial sunset (manchester 2014)

Friday, 29 August 2014

Matthew Houlding's sculptures and collages draw us into a fantastic, retro-futuristic world, inspired by architectural forms and models, modernism and a childhood spent in East Africa. Houlding's recent sculptures and collages are a homage to the utopian zeal of modern architecture. Drawing on Structuralist and Formalist ideas of architectural design and the relationships between intersecting materials and planes, contrasting geometry is framed by bold, primary coloured Perspex, which casts a Californian sunny glow over split level condo-like exteriors and interiors. This juxtaposition of materials - from cardboard boxes to garden fencing and kitchen work tops - suggest human prescience and endeavour, reflecting the experience of architecture and space; hierarchy, opposition, separation, connection, transition and assimilation. The composition of colours and painted surfaces define figure/ground relationships within the work and convey materiality, physical and cultural context, symbolism and emotional response. Houlding's landscapes are, however, people free, yet suggest an inherent optimism and sublime future.
