First of all I have just read a student email which mentioned a tutor had asked a student to look at another individual’s work. The reason for this is that she had a very personal and interesting link to her research. I had to look at the blog and it was very interesting to read. It made me think about my previous art work, prior to starting my degree at the OCA, which had been very reflective and related to personal issues. I feel however that my current work has lacked this and this used to be my ‘forte’, my complete and utter reason to work was to relate it to personal experiences. Although I miss this and wish I could combine it again I find it difficult to relate ideas to this unit so far. I am enjoying carrying through a theme in the work and for the moment that is what I have decided to focus on and explore.
