Whatever the weather, artists for centuries have been inspired to make art in response to it. Art, fashion, and photography throughout history, have revolutionised the way we think about politics, environmental/social issues, culture and even art itself. In the 21st century we are bombarded, through the media, by a constant stream of news, flipping from the personal to the global in seconds. This information often presents us with serious issues surrounding the weather and environment and this is what L3 YR1 have responded to.
I created these pieces based on the theme of weather, each canvas showing the weather getting progressively worse. I was influenced by artist Janette Kerr when planning the paintings. These pieces developed my skills working with texture, experimenting through the use of palette knives.
