For this project I want to make a series of drawings that depict my personal experiences - places, emotions, activities, etc. - over the course of the semester. I plan to use a variety of different media - for example: charcoal, pen, marker, etc. - as well as different paper choices. Think unity in disunity. Order in chaos. That's how my brain works, so I thought it would be appropriate to use that mindset for this project. As Mama Indigo said: "The best thing you can do is master the chaos in you. You are not thrown into the fire, you are the fire."
I put Andy Goldsworthy and Bryan Nash Gill as some of my inspiration for this project, not because of aesthetics necessarily (although I love their work for that reason) but because they both use whats around them to make their work. I feel they both work very well with this documentation of the here and now that I am going for. The people, places, and times in our lives will not always be there. They are constantly changing, and I'm very interested in making art that documents these "snapshots" of my life. Sort of this Ephemera of Me. I would like to also like to try using atypical sources as some of my mediums if possible that would be directly related to some of the drawing subjects such as snow, mud, or dirt.
