Recently, I re-discovered my piece I created for one of my GCSE projects labelled Food. I got an A in this specific module.
I experimented with the movement and explosion of food and it’s colour. This was my final piece experiments. I used a mallet and hammer to smash the fruit and used a slow motion cam to catch the moments on film.
I then presented the watermelon on the ground in specific positions to take a few photographs in a still motion. I then used these primary photographs to create a final piece completed with a multitude of media. Oil paints, acrylic, watercolour and melted crayon were all combined to create this final piece.
I loved this project as it allowed my imagination to go crazy and made me go outside of my comfort zone in making a mess, to create a whole new idea that I’ve never done before. I would love to explore the experimentation of destruction to create art in the future.
