Since signing up for Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search 2014, these past few weeks have been a mixture of every possible feeling. A bit of excitement and frustration, learning new things about myself, experimenting and experimenting some more, feeling happy one moment and lacking confidence other times and now towards the end I am sitting on the edge of my seat! Four more days until the judges make up their minds.
Let me start from the beginning: The assignment given for this competition was to design a wall art piece featuring ''Little Terrarium'' theme and including some kind of text relevant to our own interpretation of the assignment.
There were 999 submissions. That is such a big number! I can only imagine what a difficult task it must be for Lilla Rogers and her team to size down 999 to 50. That's right only the top 50. Now you can understand the pressure we are all under.
Anyways, all the stress and numbers aside I'd like to say that it's been a truly amazing journey. I've learnt so much about myself and I'm so glad I decided to join!
My GTS diary: I had created three pieces. First one was so bad that ended up in the bin. For the second one, I followed the familiar path and created mixed media girl painting. With 3D flowers and merino wool hair. It was pretty obvious that this one couldn't be submitted and I had to create the third one. The assignment given features "Little Terrarium" theme and even though in this painting there're patterns inspired by succulents I called it "Little Geisha". ^_^
At the end I'd decided to leave my safety zone and try something different.
I did a bit of painting and mixed media but my main focus was collage.
Here it is, my entry for Global Talent Search 2014:
Such beautiful pieces. It's amazing how each one of us has interpreted the theme so differently. I love them!
