Painting – Group Crit

Week Seven


  • “Internal workings of a human being” – very literal, maybe about emotions
  • Found the two distorted portraits interesting – liked the fact the pieces needed to be looked at to find out what they were, faces coming though the layers of paint
  • Good technical skill – liked the darker elements, something different
  • Pieces made them think of structure of the body – life expediency
  • Textured ‘swirl’ painting on MDF could link to; cells, structure of brain, organs
    • simple but complicated, good technical skill, good contrast against MDF
  • Liked the paintings on acetate – could try layering them, break down different layers of the body
  • Preferred work – paintings where subject could be questioned

Author: Daizi Davies

My name is Daizi Davies and I am 19 years old from Cardiff. I like to draw inspiration for my art from my personal life and the challenges I face day to day. I like to experiment with many different mediums but the common link that all my work has is that it is highly autobiographical. My main aim with anything I create is to tell a story and make whoever is viewing it feel something. I am currently studying Fine Art at DeMontford University and I hope to grow as an artist as well as learn new things that will help me in my future as an artist.
