For this art project I have picked a theme for this final year which are churches, I originally wasn’t going to pick this theme but my fascination with the architectural stone works and the different type of churches grew inside me makes me want to create.
The overall project so far has been a challenge to create my final pieces and my experimental works including documenting in my sketchbook. The idea later changed about the ‘Apocalypse’ which started as experimental drawings which later became a big influence in my work. I have created two big final pieces of the two churches that have the apocalyptic element to it by looking at the background. The Bible pages another idea for my project as I have glued them into my collage pieces to create the wall of the church and adds the symbolic relationship with god. By looking at various artist works my main inspiration for the project was John Piper as I have been told my work is similar to his because of the style this strived me towards creating little church drawings and still sticking to the apocalyptic element and the ruined buildings.
