Name: Heloise Wooster
School: Hendon School
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I am continuously on the lookout for inspiration throughout my everyday life, this occurs in many different forms, through music, historical events, my hometown of London City, literature, my travels, current events, or most predominantly, when I am just about to drift off to sleep. I could not image a life without creativity and challenging peoples perceptions through an alternative form, and although occasionally, I find myself stuck in a void of the unknown, drifting between dead-ideas and disarray, these setbacks and this element of negativity drives, and emulates itself within my artwork. In September I am off to do my foundation diploma with the hope of going on to study Fine Art. I cannot describe my fears of suddenly becoming incapable of creating decent work, and failing to make the progression from A Levels into the reality of a self-sufficient degree, and these aspects of my own mind inflicting my progression and hindering my everyday life is one that often also haunts my work. However it is not all doom and gloom, and fingers crossed in September I will be all right!
Title: Echoes of a Lost Takeaway
Description: Only until very, very recently did I realise that I was half decent at drawing, and this piece I created with the use of a set of fine-tipped pens when inspired by the work of the artist, Egon Schiele. There is a road in China Town, in the West-End of London, that is just so magical, but perhaps only to me! It is dirty, dank and grotty (as depicted within my drawing) however, I am in love with the urban scenery depicting decay and dilapidation, this is an idea that I often drawn towards within my artwork. I was working within my own theme of 'lost, missing, found,' and I feel that this hidden street is my own little, private utopia in the heart of city that never quite seems to go to sleep. I committed to completing this piece over the Christmas holidays, when the film 'Blade Runner' directed by Ridley Scott was shown on the T.V, this went far in inspiring the collaboration between East meets and West and also the depiction of an alternative and futuristic world, a factor of which I hope comes across within my drawing.
