Third week of school means first critique of my graduate studio practice class. The professors this semester allot 30 minutes for everyone’s work to be discussed, as well as the rule that the artist is not allowed to comment on his/her own work while it is being discussed. I enjoy this rule as it allows the viewer not to be influenced by the artist’s words only the work itself. My critique did not go as well as I hoped it would, however I know my work is in the beginning stages. I am in this limbo moment trying to figure out this new experimental work and how I can tie the elements I enjoy from my older pieces while introducing the new concepts I want in the piece. I want to get in the studio and go all out and really put the time into the canvas and build my pieces up.
