I am currently reading ” Learning Journals ” by Jennifer Moon which is making me more aware of the importance of journaling each day. I know that it will help me to develop a stronger sense of identity in relation to my practice and what I am looking at.
I am making detailed drawings of my own mouth closed to continue with my research into the boundaries between inside and outside the body. I intend to work on a larger scale to change the perception of what I am drawing and to emphasise it’s ambiguity.
I can see how by writing my thoughts I will gain greater confidence in expressing myself. I am feeling slightly disappointed with what I am currently producing as it feels directionless. A much clearer direction or resonance is needed. I feel like I am holding back but not quite sure why. By working much larger I hope my work will show freer more expressive mark making.
