After publishing the blog post about my disastrous graduation pieces I realised that I forgot to show the photographs that were shown alongside the two paintings. The photos were my saving grace, without them, I may not have passed my exhibition module so I thought it would be a shame for you not to see them and appreciate them as I did.
The photos were close up detailed shots of the lingerie that I was painting at the time. They were taken with my Canon EOS 1300D DSLR camera, which I really should use more often, and they were printed on high quality A4 photo paper and mounted to A3 size and were then supposed to be displayed in the archival box in the photo above. But due to my disasters before my exhibition I had to display them on my exhibition walls so there weren’t large empty spaces where my paintings should have been.
There were six photographs in total, with four displayed on one wall and two on another, for some unknown reason, I didn’t photograph them all in situ. I loved these photos more than my paintings because you could see just how beautiful bras can be. Some of the lace and embroidery on them were just beautiful. To me bras are works of art even before I paint them.
