i would try and post some photos, but i dont think these internet cafe computers have usb ports, and i forgot my card reader anyway.

i dont really have much to say.. i’d rather say it through photos when i get back. auschwitz yesterday was beyond words.. i got a lot of photos so i’ll post some when i get back.

i’ll try and update more tomorrow – an hour of internet here is the equivilent of about 50p. seriously. take the price of everything in england, and divide it by four. poland’s weird. and -15c.


art replication assignment (thanks faye)

the point to this assignment was to take a painting by a well known artist and replicate it in the studio – and add a contemporary twist.

the painting i replicated was “odalisca con le magnolia”, from 1924, by henri matisse :

henri matisse - odalisca con le magnolia

i was pretty stuck for ideas. but after watching trainspotting, i came up with my concept.

the next one you’ll see is a scan of a darkroom print. it’s better i think but it’s up to you.
