Work of art I would like to make

Carrying on the theme of heroes, monsters and victims, i would like to carry on exploring the bare essential information you need visually to create a striking sculpture or painting. I feel more confident working in 3d, especially plaster as its quick setting and moulding qualities help to make an idea quickly. This also leaves room for error and improvement.

I started to incorporate lenses into my work (binocular thing and victims) and this is something i'd like to continue. I use lenses to represent eyes, but i would like to explore what happens when i use these as interactive props to communicate and direct gaze through.

Taking inspiration from artists such as Rachel Harrsion and Rebecca Warren i want to create bold sculpture that challenge the ideals of beautiful and acceptable.

I want to carry on using movie reference, especially Hitchcock and Hammer horror. I want to see if i can incorporate the slick (and not so slick) techniques they use in there cinematography.
