"Generation Mask" was the title of last term's project.
Students researched the origins of Synthetic and Analytical Cubism, pioneered by artists George Braques and Pablo Picasso. Through their investigations, they realised that the aesthetic of this art movement is rooted in African Masks. To develop a source for an observational study, each student created their own mask 'sculpture' at home. This took the form of "Found Object Faces" which they then photographed, observed and studied through tonal pencil drawings. The images show each student's research, development, experimentation and on page 3, their final piece. The result - a vibrant collection of Cubist Self portraits!
