Khamillah chose the ‘Transform’ question from the examination paper. She started by looking at a broad range of artists who could be described as reflecting the theme ‘Transform’. She created a double page spread collage of these artists.
Khamillah went on to look in more detail at the artists Matthew Cusick who creates artworks with map/collage.
On the second page Khamillah had a go at creating a portrait out of collage. See below.
Above is the artists work. Below is Khamillah trying out a section of this. I am pleased she had the confidence to leave it incomplete. This small section, which took a long time, shows that she understands the process the artist has been through.
Her photographs reflect the compositions of Cusicks work. She has taken lots of different viewpoints and all the photos are in focus. Wonderful!
Khamillah started experimenting with different types of collage and created the beautiful collages below, all of which are inspired by her own photographs.
Below is a detail.
More pages show different composition ideas and experiments.
