I found this more theoretical approach very useful. I really enjoyed researching the artists, many of whom I was not familiar with. I particularly enjoyed exploring Tracey Emin’s work. Although I find it quite unsettling at times it changed my opinion of her work and there were even some pieces that I really would like to see in the flesh as it were. I would particularly like to look more closely at her quilts.
The questions set were particularly helpful as a basis for analysis. I have always had trouble knowing what to write for analyses and I will certainly use these in the future.
An awareness of context in which work is produced is always useful and will certainly influence the way in which I work in the future and I will be adding to this research in my own time. I am continuing to add to my pintrest boards as well which should help in the future.
