Trip to Rotterdam

Over the Easter break I went to Rotterdam to visit a friend studying out there. As a very new city its full of interesting architecture and art everywhere you look. Here are some highlights that I found inspiring:

Fell in love with the market stalls with these lovely masks and puppet:

They inspired me to explore techniques such as silicone, latex and resin casting in my masks to achieve a more polished and professional outcome. I am keen to explore casting in different materials and find a new better way of constructing my pieces.

I loved this take on realism as it incorporates the surreal with the realistic and in doing so creates this eerie effect.
