Name: Emma Wallond
School: Shenley Brook End School
Town: Milton Keynes
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: Having lived in Milton Keynes for nearly 14 years, the way in which the town was designed around parks, woods and fields whilst keeping the culture of a city helped shape my childhood into being fascinated about natural forms and the way we grow up as people. This influenced my art throughout my adolescence and more recently adulthood: the way in which each individual person is completely different, similar to the uniqueness of natural forms that create the foundation of life and death. I find it fascinating how there are details amongst nature and the personality of an individual that the eyes cannot perceive. I like to recreate this uniqueness and difficulty to see details, amongst other approaches, through 2D work and most recently 3D sculpture.
Description: Having been inspired by Jason De Caires Taylor, I was interested in natural forms assimilating the original work that I had created. I planted cress seeds amongst other seeds amd photographed my artwork every day whilst under a growing lamp. The way in which the artwork changed from small seedlings to dry dead leaves really interested me and I thought it reflected the circle of life for humans as well as plants in an interesting way while almost stripping the profile of the face from humanity.
