SUBMISSION FOR CREATIVE DEBUTS/ELLO
These works are part of an ongoing project in which I am creating a series of works and responses based on my investigation and ideas regarding the question : "Is boredom boring?". I am investigating what boredom means to me and what boredom is defined as or what it is thought to be. I collect any doodles or sketches that I do when I feel bored and note whatever I regard as boring or collect objects I find not interesting and ask myself why did I find these boring or why did I draw this whilst bored?. I am currently making paintings like the first image in which I am repeating doodles I have done in a sketch book or on random paper on a much bigger scale, creating almost a pattern and seeing if this looks boring since it was done out of boredom. I am also investigating and thinking about the conscious and the subconscious and how this links to the concept of boredom. This is what my second work "Brains without minds" it's about. It's made of small pieces of paper all sewn together. It also includes pieces of an acrylic painting some metal and materials such as can openers and safety pins. Every piece of paper has a poem or a drawing or a repeated pattern on it that I collected over a period of time.
