DIY and critique

Alex- Interesting blue creatures, they make make me curious. But I am wondering what the presentation is about. Why are they laid out on a pedestal with the darker blue rug underneath? I think they could be very interesting and exciting with perhaps a different set up and surrounding. I am left asking why?
Lauren-I know your intentions for the piece, but i did enjoy the way it was set up in this manner and unglazed. I am excited to see more, though the amount you have currently still has a presence to it. I liked the parts where the tiles were layered and you had volume to it.
Abbey- I loved the paint job you gave to this piece. Very gross and beautiful. I want more of it though. or perhaps bigger but with the same attention to detail. as if i were walking into a boneyard, though i know with the amount of time a boneyard would be excessive.
Pam-Beautiful work. I'm glad you had some with detail in the pottery and the different glazes. I really enjoyed the first group on the podium a lot.
Ashley- I assume this is going to be exhibited with your other work thats about your life. In which case i like the idea of a quilt made up of pieces of you. I liked the top left one and the bottom right one the most. They seemed more completed compared to the other squares. I hope that this is going to become an actual sized quilt.
Steph- I like zombie things, so i enjoyed this. The last sequence I feel was the strongest because it was the most visually interesting with the incorporation of the stop motion and what was happening to your body. And i liked that you opened your eyes in the last second of the film. Music was good.

Cecily Brown is one artist i have recently looked at. Her work is "overtly sexual" though there is so much paint on the canvas along with the paint application that you have to really look at what she is painting. Olivier Aboucaya is in his late 40s. i just stumbled upon. I don't know if i usually even liek work like this but i really love the color and composition in his paintings.

As for a how to, I have not learned anything technically art related, other than melting clear glycerine soap gives you a cool texture that you can give as much pigment to, though expensive. I did however find on youtube how to make a green screen for cheap! Though you do need software called wax. But the actually material you can just use green posterboard. The video explains much better than i can. link is on the link list
