  • Found Objects and Art Doll

    Today at Uni, we made art using materials we had found during the course of our journey in to class. I carefully gathered my bag of found objects and waited to see what would emerge.

    Found Objects

    I was totally unprepared for this amazing doll!

    Spirit of Art

    In response to our artwork we were invited to write a short poem. This is mine – let me know if you like it.

    Breathing space!

    I’ve finally finished handing in my written work for this academic year and have a little bit of breathing space before the next marathon of academic writing begins!! I haven’t done any painting yet, but I have been playing digital and making dolls!

    Fragmented 1

    It never ceases to amaze me how many variations it’s possible to create from one image simply by copying and blending.

    Fragmented 2

    The problem comes with knowing when to stop – tricky one that!! Both these images were created from one original piece of artwork which I played with digitally to achieve more depth and interest.

    Ever since we had a doll making workshop on the course, I’ve been obsessed with doll making and have been reading about the history and researching well known doll makers. I bought this Art Doll Instructional Zine from Lani Gerity a while ago, and finally managed to have a go at making one of the dolls.

    Study's Over!

    She’s called “Study’s Over” and if you want to know how I made her you’re going to have to splash out $9 to buy the zine from Lani, but I can tell you I used pipe cleaners, fabric, yarn, air drying clay and acrylic paint. She was very simple and great fun to make!

    I’m working on some more dolls and am hoping to get the paint out very soon, so keep watching!
