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 this artwork based on the umbrella theme of weather. I made this to raise awareness for S.A.D. I had inspiration for my piece mainly from Alexis Nevess, a double exposure artist. The double exposure technique was important because it allowed emotions to be expressed and correlated with weather.
