Secret Entry 9 - Inspiration from Melinda Schawel

We then got a chance to go to the Art Central 2018. I got to know Melinda schawel and her work. She focuses on the physicality of the creative process by scraping, sanding, painting, perforating, drawing, cutting, drilling and tearing the canvas. This leaves trails and marks on the canvas that overlap each other. She believes that ‘trails of perforations exist in others and is a metahor for movement, journey and migration’

We then tried the same method to impale, poke and cut canvas and plastic to see how it would look like and how it felt. However, we still couldn’t make much of it. At this point we felt very lost.
