Starting Point

This was an opportunity to create a piece of work inspired by either of two provided prints. One of which was ‘Mo with 5 Leaves’ by David Hockney. The selected artworks were exhibited along side the original prints in an exhibition at the Courtyard Arts gallery.

Artists were asked to study one of the images and produce their own piece inspired by it. Whether it be the subject matter, materials, colours, use of space/negative space etc. Courtyards Arts wanted to be able to see and understand the connection to either of the works.
They sought variations of artwork in different styles and mediums, to make the exhibition an exciting part of their 2024 programme.

Using watercolour as my medium, I chose the Hockney for inspiration and in addition I also sought influence from Picasso’s ‘Nude, Green Leaves and Bust’.
