The theme for the second painting project is about inside. But what inside is depend on our own interpretation of it or whatever our concept is, so it really is a broad theme.
People came out with different interesting ideas and concepts such as inside of a bubble, inside of a toilet bowl, inside of a dead chicken, close up of flowers, inside of polaroids, inside of a vagina, and the lists goes on.
I chose the idea relating to interior, so I picked several photos of inside that I have and I think I should do studies on; like toilet bowl, inside my bathroom and inside of a room. As you can see from my small paintings here, about A3 range-size.
In the end I picked the most personal photo, which I took at Riau, Indonesia. Its simple but yet it really had that dramatic light effect which gave that reminiscent feeling about the place.
Anyways, my reference artists would be Edward Hopper and Matthias Weischer. And my lecturer says that my style reminds her of Luc Tuymans, which you guys should go research on.
