William Kentridge

I was very inspired by William Kentridge artwork when I saw his exhibition at White Chapel Gallery in late 2016.

When I think about how I want to be as a visual artist and what I want to combine in my work, I really think his work enables the use of drawing and digital media, to still allow for himself to have his own voice, not being flooded by the technology taking control.

As an artist, I would like to be able still use drawing and painting, to be able to see that it is my work by the technique of how I draw but still being able to technology to push the boundaries further.

At the moment my research is starting with artists that I admire who have a background in painting and drawing but have taken their practice further.

From researching William Kentridge, I found this interesting talk about his work on the Tate Modern website. http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/william-kentridge-2680

In particular I really enjoyed how he spoke about different fragments and ideas that these are on the walls of the studio. In a person’s studio it is the mapping of what is happening. And as an artist it is to construct a coherence of the world.
