This idea just came to me slightly at the last minute while I was walking home from buying dinner for my family. I was just strolling along the park when I saw the sun was setting. It struck me that maybe I could have this concept of me capturing the movement of the Sun or more like Journey with/of the Sun. So I gave it a little try….
So then I was thinking if this idea could be “it”. However, there were still thoughts of “What if it’s a journey of sunset?” or “What if it’s a journey of the sun (for example, from dawn to dusk)” which means that I’d have to be out certain times of the day to actually capture the moments of the sun and its position or somewhat.
Fret not, I still have a few ideas that I’d want to try these few days.
Follow up from the couple of previous post from when we were to post about a favourite artist or somewhat, I picked a 26 year old local Singaporean, Dzaki Safaruan.
If one were to google him online, there is nothing much to find as he is not as famous as Ed Moses or the other artists that we know of from this assignment. But maybe I’ll just introduce him with what I know.
Dzaki Safaruan is a cousin of mine who recently graduated from NAFA for his Degree in Fine Arts. He has this “thing” for art since his secondary school times(?) and decided to pursue his love and passion for art right after. One thing for sure, he always has a sketchbook with him. Sometimes it would be as big as A4 size, and sometimes it would be the pocket sized sketchbook.
I have a few of his art works that you could look at and be as amazed as I am.
His works are amazing, with all the precision lines and details. Recently he gave me an advice and ideas on how I could make my monoprint exciting from his experience. I tried one and its result:
The link above shows the time-lapse video of the monoprinting process did by Gek Luan and myself last week. We decided “Why not do this for documentation purposes? It’ll be fun!” And so we did.
If you’ve watched the video, you’d experience watching the camera going down down down then it stops… Now, we could interpret this as the camera bowing and thanking you for watching the process of our mini monoprinting session.
This is just a progress post whereby these images at the top are the monoprinted sheets that I did last night. I thought why not just have extras ready before we do the cutting and collaging this coming lesson. I like to be prepared to have back ups if a few were to fail (of course, i am praying hard and hoping it would not happen!) or this and that doesn’t fit together and stuffs like that.
