Influential Artists shown during the breifing presentation, 5 specific artists that stood promient.
I love Edward Hopper's bold style and the way his subject is always the main focus. The prominent choice of colour brings the scene to life and the constant use of a window brings ambiguity to the piece. The crop of the scenes and sharp lines brings the sense of the uncanny.

The idea of the woman falling forever, frozen in time, is both chilling and thought provoking. The fact you see the woman falling before the people through the window gives us a sense that life will never be the same. A moment captured in time - emotions, movement and life.
Jeff WallI love this piece that Jeff Wall has assembled. The lights are cluttered, but appear beautifully and individually placed. The fact the ceiling contrasts to its surroundings gets the audiences' minds wondering. Within my own piece I was something as bold and great as this to bewilder.
The primary colours used to contrast the imagery is brilliant. It seems like the artist takes a setting that is everyday and flips it on its head and builds a world they want to see. The cluttered composition is delicately placed.
Films that have given me a few inspirational thoughts include 'Sleeping With the Enemy', 'Black Swan', 'Poison Ivy' - all psychological thrillers - include the idea of striving for perfection and the idea of breaking free from whatever is constraining them.
