The Fear of Fog
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 work to try and explore fear of the unknown in common things, like fog. My overall vision was to try and communicate uncertainty and uncomforting feelings of not knowing what could be within the fog. I was heavily inspired by the artist Trevor Henderson and my theme of extreme weather.
