How this artist caught my attention was less because I was intrigued about the physical qualities of her work but more about how I liked the idea behind her work. Specifically when she questions "Where does a painting begin?" and "When does it end?"
Especially during this week when we are to question the meaning of paint, trying to create a painting without actually using the traditional "paint", I found that this way of thinking really helps me to develop my work. Paintings does not have to be on a canvas, hung on a wall or done by paint. It could be anything the artist wants it to be, and by learning this really helped me to gain confidence in creating by using new materials. Even though I enjoy using paint to draw detailed and sophisticated paintings I am also enjoying this new approach.
