Artist Blocks is a series of brick-shaped forms containing what we commonly witness as ‘debris,’ produced by students during their art-making process. These leftovers, which include pencil shavings, charcoal dust, dried acrylic paint and stained glass pieces, are usually discarded or left unnoticed in comparison to final works. Artist Blocks attempts to bring the unnoticed visible, attributing value to the debris, cast in brick-shaped forms which are akin to the notion of ‘Artist Blocks.’
For reasons highlighted above, featured below are the thoughts that the artist had considered in the making of Artist Blocks and the processes the artist had gone through. Take your time to appreciate the work that had gone behind the single piece of final work. We hope that you too will be able to see that the value of art lies not solely in the outcome but also in the thoughts of the artist and how that was translated through a physical medium. May this will start your creative juices flowing. Happy art-making!
