  • George Quenby wrote a new post, SWAP: Offsite Show, on the site fine art 10 months ago

    SWAP was the show put on by Freya Everest, Charlotte Grocutt, Nicole Davies, Meryl Yana, Katherine Scardifield and myself. We formed the group as although we use different mediums and processes, we thought our […]

  • My essay explored themes of calm in art and film as the most successful pieces I’ve made in the past have often focused on a calming process of creating. Although after writing the essay I still feel like I don’t […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Bea Fremderman, on the site fine art 10 months ago

    Fremderman has a playful way of making work, shown not only in her choice of materials, but also in the way she assembles them together. She often combines organic and inorganic matter or uses organic matter to […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Nightlife, on the site fine art 10 months ago

    Nightlife is a film by Cyprien Gaillard made in 2015. It follows a series of atmospheric visuals depicting urban areas of specific cultural relevance. One of the most striking visuals in the film is the maniacal […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Animation Plans, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    After being really happy with how my test animation turned out I want to make more animations with more ambitious movements and pathways.

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Book of Creatures 3, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    Some of the creatures are really starting to become quite strange and abstract as I work with referencing inanimate objects in their designs. These creature-object forms are some of my favourites from the book so […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Book of Creatures 2, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    Filling the book has been really enjoyable. Drawing one piece per page is a way of working that I think suits me as it doesn’t feel so weighted. There are certain creature archetypes that are starting to appear as […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Book of Creatures, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    I remember working on a project about making a comic that came to a standstill. I wanted it to be either a comic or a collection of images or scenes that would cover a general theme instead of having a concise and […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Water Sculpture Ideas, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    I had this idea to try to make the most appealing liquid I could imagine. I’ve also been thinking about creating a sculpture that would hold water. Combining these two ideas seemed to be the most effective way to […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Creature Origins, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    During Foundation, I thought the kind of work I was going to produce was ‘not fine art enough’ to fit in with my fine art class. I categorised my drawings as illustrations, despite being entirely my own creation […]

  • I’ve been thinking about aesthetic art and how people react to it. Purely aesthetic art is just as valid as any other form of art, but it seems as though striking the balance between conceptual and aesthetic art […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Animation Test, on the site fine art 1 year ago

    I used this page of drawings as the basis of my animation. I really enjoyed drawing these as I could push this drawing formula in so many directions. After filling the page I could just imagine the creatures all […]

  • I attended Practice Workshop 7, which allowed me to visit Babak Ghazi’s studio and to view his piece Lifework. It was interesting to see the setup that a practicing artist would work in, and also to see how his […]

  • The piece I am presenting at my first exhibition is the railing. I thought that the concept behind this piece seemed appropriate for my first show.

    I have three ideas of how to wrap the tape around the […]

  • I’ve been thinking more about my mental-image idea generation method and how it relates to my concepts. One might think that these ideas are purely based on aesthetics and making something visually interesting. I […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Water Systems, on the site fine art 1 year, 4 months ago

    This idea doesn’t have a definite physical layout, and is instead just a general concept. This idea involves two items: water cycles and filtration.

    The water cycle idea involves pumping water around a complex […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Railing, on the site fine art 1 year, 4 months ago

    This idea came to me after seeing a roll of tape hanging off the side of a desk. The tape hung elegantly and decoratively despite being, much like the staircase, such a mundane and overlooked object. Something […]

  • George Quenby wrote a new post, Staircase, on the site fine art 1 year, 4 months ago

    I was thinking about art on human scale and art that is easily accessible for people. Staircases are an omnipresent feature in all buildings. They are relatively mundane and go unnoticed. Alternatively, […]

  • Sometimes my sole inspiration for a piece is a mental image that suddenly hits me. I will see something or remember something I’ve seen and think of a piece of work that uses an element of this mental image. This […]
