Inspiration of the Week – Jim Shaw

Jim Shaw is an American artist who normally works in both painting and installation

His exhibition here deals with multiple issues and different types of imagery, mostly inspired by his childhood home of Michigan. 

What I am looking at here is not so much the imagery or themes, but more looking at how the artist has displayed his work.

One of the biggest question marks that exists in my next project is how I am going to display my final piece as it is more of a documentary style project. 
I really like this particular area here and think that this has given me the most inspiration.

I think that having images suspended from the ceiling and also on the wall would add a form of narrative to my work and make people more interested in going to see it.

NB – all photographs here have been taken from these sites:

I do not own any of the pictures on this post.

Until next time
