narrative thoughts in the studio


I have been researching the narrative in visual art. In my last research paper I examined the works of Gregory Crewdson and Alec Soth and I looked at the way these two artists construct a narrative in their work. Crewdson loads his images with layers of a story which he presents in large scale compositions, while Soth sequences his images and presents his work in a book format. Although both artists imply a narrative in their work, the viewer is left with more answers than questions. Implementing the research in my own studio work, I’m looking at ways to create and deny a narrative.
