As an artist I am also invited to create work in response to working with the group and the project, and take inspiration from the rich environments that the group visit from week to week. The current project is called In Search of Spirituality: Images of compassion, Images of cruelty in religious art. By the end of the project for myself I will aim to have an exhibition from the artwork that evolves from my time working with the group and the foundation and hopefully some form of book or catalogue.
This is my first attempt at blogging, so I will add contents of my research and the making of the work. I have been keeping an open mind about what to create or how to respond, but thankfully it has come in the form of small shrines to represent each faith we will have engaged with, the shrines will be produced in the form of boxes, which are spectacle display units. I have managed to create my first box. I will add the documentation of what I have currently created, and look forward to seeing how the project evolves and how it affects me and my art.
