Curvature: Pastel

I had already had these shapes as an idea before I can across the pastels of David Blackburn but his work has given me the inspiration to realise them in a different format.

The piece is quite large in scale 100 x 70 cm so was quite physical to work on but I enjoyed the process. I can see possibility in pushing these shapes further trying various media and scales, I already have ideas rushing around my head.

Now it is finished I notice and am interested in how I have separated the 3 elements; air, earth and water, so each is contained in their own space.

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.

  1. Your latest pastel drawing is beautiful Annemarie, I love how the shapes have completely changed the way you read the work.

    • Thank you Sarah, I cant wait to explore it further in the next couple of weeks. I am impressed with your casting, looks like you are having lots of problem solving but also you are learning and perfecting lots of new techniques.
