The restoration of mistakes Jemimah santo

Restoration Defined

Restoration to me is defined as something being restored to former position or appearance; however it also means to me rebuilding, healing and covering up.

FOCUS

My chosen focus is concentrated on the innocence of children and their mistakes. The design will be light and airy colours that display innocence but they will be splattered or blotched onto water color paper; then I will draw over the designs to add the restoration factor. Transforming a child's innocent mistake (there artwork) into a restorated piece of art.

Pastel Colours

I plan on experimenting on wooden boards and other surfaces to portray my pieces as I want to use different media for this body of work. When applying the colours to the surfaces I have used sponges, paper towel and some cotton stuffing, I also used a smudging effect that children are taught in preschool which adds the my focus.

Children's mistakes defined

Children in my body of work are defined as helpless, and full of mistakes, innocence is what makes a child in my pieces, the pastel colours used represent the light hearted innocence of a child. The internet definition of child is a immature or irresponsible person; however when you look up the definition of mistake it appears as an accident or mishap, when you combine those two together you get the connection of children growing up and making mistakes.

In this body of work I am focusing on young children (below 5) as they are more likely to create the type of artwork I am experimenting with, the careless splashes and blotched patterns that parents consider 'art' as to encourage their child, my pieces will transform or restore their mistakes into something that can be considered art from all ages. the intricate patterns that are drawn over the light colours express a bouncy and cheerful child.
