“Right off the bat, I’m so excited by your desire to experiment and try new things as an artist, which is just so important in pushing yourself. One area I think that you can push in this specific piece is perhaps how your concept works with your technique or the mediums you’re using.
For example, in your artist statement, you talk a lot about disguise and that’s a big concept in this piece. But, how could that really be pushed in the way you use the person that you’re photographing. For example, how could their pose speak to the idea of disguise, maybe you could even be more liberal with the band-aids that are on them. Almost like they’re a mess.
You’re doing such a great job of exploring mixed media and being really bold as an artist so I would just say like great job and just keep pushing and experimenting more.”
“I think you’re really succeeded in getting your viewer to see this everyday object in a totally new perspective.
The needle and thread part wasn’t immediately apparent to me. I thought of a river, or a tangle of hair. I think that slow realization is good for the viewer, but I would also like to see that river extended into a longer thread.
The handmade quality of the eye of the needle makes it look as if it were an artifact built for some kind of worship or place in the home. For that reason I would consider how the pedestal functions with your sculpture. Does it need to be a museum white pedestal or could it be something else?”
