Fiona Tracey

OCA tutor and assessor Bryan Eccleshall looks at the work of student Fiona Tracey. He examines how she uses mindmaps of images drawn and collated to relate things together. By making these connections it is a way of understanding her own practice, the practice of other people and how her work fits in relation to theirs. This can be used as a model by other students to do the same.

    Brilliant mapping. I love the thought processes shown and all the little sketchy bits.

    Well done Fiona. This is something all students can learn from. Often we think about connections in a way that becomes muddled but presenting it like you have makes sense of it all. If the connections (arrows, circles, boxes) are the constellations what would the drawing look like with all other images removed?
