I ended my crit week with one delivered by the Fina Art tutor and Fine Art Curator at the Whitworth and it was highly illuminating as they had such a different approach and way of looking at all the work in comparison to the other tutors i had engaged with during the process from a mix of disciplines.
So they loved the glove: which for this crit i had left pretty much on its own with the needlewoman cut fabric.
Most people got the range of narratives I was exploring and they concluded that what was key was for me to consolidate which was what I knew, I just needed to see if what I was creating had any resonance with others. Interesting that most prefer not to have the text and that they want to solve the conundrum of the work. Which as I am often the opposite I realise that a lot of that comes from the length of time one is immersed in a world. So lots to think of and experiments to conclude, more importantly a week off soon to crack on with the writing.......
