GCSE Art and Design 'Identity'
Transcript of GCSE Art and Design 'Identity'
artists to look at...
video or film
make a film of your day, a journey to school,
an event. Create a storyboard, edit footage and
present edited films before choosing a final piece.
use colour to show who you are. Some artists
have used colour to explain their mood and their
personality. Could you do the same? What does colour say about you?
create a piece of work
from found objects, things
you've collected or the things
other people would throw away.
Make something interesting and
unique by creating something new out of
images say so much about our daily lives that we get used to them far too easily. Someone once said that an image can say a thousand words. Can you create a series of photographs that represent you and your life in a skilful way?
born 1928, died 1987
After Warhol was shot and critically injured in 1968 his Artwork started to be influenced by his near death experience. he focussed his attention on objects like guns and skulls to highlight his own mortality
What you should do next
a plan for success
can you use lines and tones to show your 'self image'?
can you use a distorted portrait to show the world how you really feel?
do you want to show skill with proportions or close up viewpoints?
this could be for you!
spend your time looking at the work of artists you like.
print out some images by that artist
find out about them....what makes them make artwork?
why is it so important? Dig deeper than usual to find out.
what does the examiner want to see?
combine materials by mixing media. For example, using a watercolour and then drawing over it with coloured pencil is mixed media. Add collage or printmaking...it's an endless stream of possibilities
Develop their ideas through investigations informed by contextual and other sources demonstrating analytical and cultural understanding
Refine their ideas through experimenting and selecting appropriate resources, media, materials, techniques and processes
Record ideas, observations and insights relevant to their intentions in visual and/or other forms
Present a personal, informed and meaningful response demonstrating analytical and critical understanding, realising intentions and where appropriate, making connections between visual, written, oral or other elements.
the theme for your next project is....
'self portrait' by M.C.Escher
The cells are perhaps Bourgeois’s most autobiographical works, acting as tangible manifestations of psychic space. They suggest rooms which enforce solitary confinement, such as prison cells, as well as rooms which provide private thinking space, such as bedrooms or monks’ cells.
The spider is a recurring theme in the works Bourgeois made in the 1990s. Both predator and protector, a sinister threat and an industrious repairer, the spider is an eloquent representation of the mother. Maman 1999, one of this series of large scale spiders, is on show on the landscape outside Tate Modern, between the Gallery and the river. The spinning and weaving of the spider’s web links to Bourgeois’s own mother, who worked in the family’s tapestry restoration business. It also links to the artist’s most recent sculptures, made from scraps of fabric stitched together, which you will see in the next room.
biro self portrait
Self image fascinates many artists. Think carefully about how you like to be seen or the things that you believe represent your personality.
Research appropriate sources and produce your own work using any suitable media in response to self image
You could create something based on any of the following:
•Lyrics and words
Materials you could use include
•Colour work in paints, pastel or pencil
•Video or film
Artists to look at are
•Gilbert and George
Discuss your ideas with your teacher before you begin and plan your time well.
We are here
what this means...
find an artist that you like and really study them in depth so that you show the examiner that you...
1. Know how the work was made
2. What it means (you can do this by anotating)
3. Understand what the work is about by making and recreating parts of it
name of artist/movement
Title of the piece of work. What do you think the title means?
Describe what is happening in the work
What do you think the work is about?
Why was it created?
How would you describe the techniques the artist has used?
Why do you think the artist has chosen these techiques?
Have you used similar techniques as the artist? describe which ones
What sort of colours, shapes and textures has the artist used?
What is the feel, mood or message of the piece?
What do you think of the work? Do you like it? If not, why?
How does the artists work connect to the work that you are doing and how has this artist inspired you?
Could the artists' work be improved? How?
this is the part where you play with materials and ideas to show the examiner that you are willing to try things out
Show evidence in your sketchbook of working through different ideas and anotate your thoughts.
Did your experiments go well? Why?
What materials did you use?
Which do you prefer and why?
How will you use these ideas to develop your own work?
take photos, work from observation and memory.
Write down how you feel when you are exploring the work
How can the real world that you live in support your ideas?
this is your final piece.
It will only be amazing if you've
done everything else correctly

an example of work on 'self image'
who are you?
what do you look like?
how do you know?
who do you think you are?
how do you know this?
what gives you away?
surround yourself with the things you love
now record them
make them come alive
make them show us who you are
right now, yes...right now..
what is your favourite word, lyric or phrase
what does that say about you
what is your book, the one that describes you best..are you a novel, a work of fiction?
could you be a graphic novel or a superhero?
if you were in a story..what would it be.
do you have a floordrobe?
what did you last wear..that crumpled pile of clothes, those textures..the colour..make it art..make it something new
the place you go to that is your favourite place..
is it real? where is it?..does it exist at all or do you create spaces in your head and play hide and seek with yourself?
what do they look like? the people you see...?
How do you record time?...a journey from place to place.
Do you collect things? Sketch as you go? Take photographs? Make a film?
How might you document your journeys in a creative way?
Every day that we have grown we've been fed and nurtured by those around us. They are as much a part of us as we are...they created our self image and watched us grow.
Can you find a way to communicate these ideas?
does it matter?
do you see it
it's all around you and sometimes never there at all
live your life through colour, show us how it represents your mood, your life..your hopes and dreams
how do you see the world?
are you political, social, shy, loud, afraid, confident?
use this...create a way to tell us what you think
rich or poor
quiet or loud
city or country
How could you communicate
contrasts on a journey or a change in identity?
