I was feeling anxious about creating a body of work for the MA show, and was unsure what implications this would have for my future practice. Found some good advice online about creating a body of work, or series of work. I have my theme: The Microscopic World on Rob Kesseler. I have part of my style – it will develop.
Choosing a style for the MA body of work does not confine one to a rigid style forever – like Halima Cassell, one can add to and adapt one’s style over time and still produce a coherent oeuvre. Choosing a theme now does not confine one to that theme forever – although I’m sure future themes have to be readily understandable by the galleries and public. I’m feeling clearer now about how to move forwards.
