Billboard your face.

An idea that see' me re-creating the glory of 60's and 70's bollywood glamour. Using the style of the women's clothing, make up and pose, i want to use myself as the tool that advertises the old ideals of what a beautiful women was 'meant' to look like; Pale skinned, Big eyes, curvy figures, and ulitmately oozing glamour and sex appeal, so basically the opposite of me, which is the irony of the billboards.

To go ahead with this idea, i firstly want to look at making photoshop and hand drawn A3 posters of the same style, and post them around the town center to build up to the final piece, which i am hoping to be at least 8x16 ft. painted by hand on wooden boards.Billboard your face.

The Girl Cell.

it lets us be colourful. 

The Beautiful Boutique

An idea i've been thinking about is creating 'Your Beautiful Boutique'. An idea that involves constructed a make shift beauty parlor/shop/dressing room? for the 'audience' to walk into and feel like there in there own space, surrounded by beautiful things, mirrors, sounds of india (i recorded various different conversations with shop keepers, background music, and general talk about clothes from my visit in india) and hopefully leave feeling good and girly...(optional for boys?!) Its a big project, and maybe something that needs more time to think about, rather than rushing to get it completed for the exhibition. But i'll keep it in the background and see how well it ties in. 

I've also added a clip of a recording i took whilst shoppingin Jalandhar, a busy indian bazaar that sells anything and everything....awesome but noisy place

The pictures i added because there pretty and make me inspired about this 'dressing room' idea.

British Turf.

Is Good. 

After an emotional, long, tiring journey just to get the Punajb, I was greeted by the all to well known traditions, colours (of course!) nosey faces, and smiles. An experience, thats changed my attitude towards my current work, in a way I thought it couldn't. Hoping to be thrown into a culture that was ready to help with open arms, colours in my face, i felt an overwhelming feeling of confusion, loneliness, and wanting my creature comforts, I was in a place where i really needed to be strong and get on. After a day or two of being the spoilt British brat, I got into my 'role' as a young lady wanting to be involved in everything around me. This trip as truly been the kick up the ass I needed, inspiration in the bucket loadsand now theres nothing left to do but to paint!

Photos will follow as promised...
