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.
With my work I have tried to use water (tsunami) as my vision to help show the hazardous aspects of nature and what destruction it can cause. My work can link to many artists that work with the same subject matter, such as J.M.W Turner and Katsuhisa Hokusai who creates a harsh dramatic wave in bright colours.
