From my tutorial with Tom last week, I did research into the artists who were mentioned to try and develop my work.
Anselm Kiefer is a German artist who uses a range of materials in his work including clay, ash and straw. He often focuses on making work that represents key historical themes. He works at a large scale which sometimes could be viewed as confrontational to represent the darkness of his culture. His work also includes signatures of key historical figures within the pieces to link things together which I find very interesting.
