“Creativity takes courage.”

Henri Matisse

As part of our first module, one of our group, Anna Weir wanted to do a facial cast as part of her installation. Our tutor Dr O’Rourke outlined how this would be possible and talked us through some films on the subject. Undaunted by this, Anna bought the materials and eventually a date was set to test this process.

Anna was incredibly brave as Dr O’Rourke had explained that she would have to remain still for up to 30 mins with her head encased in plaster.  To prepare for this she practiced breathing techniques for the two weeks before the procedure.

The following are my photographs of the event.

The procedure took the whole of the afternoon, with both first and second years observing the process. The outcome was that Anna was left with a very successful cast of her face.

Living in Newcastle I have access to great landscape; sea, urban, country and city which I am continually inspired by. Starting my artistic qualification in my 50's allows me the benefit of long years admiring others art and a burning need to create my own.
