Artist Research

A lot of artists helped with this project and influenced my works. Catherine Opie is one I've researched before but her take on photography and poses matched what I wanted and had done within my photoshoot. I wanted to do queer artist research even if their work didn’t relate to my practice at all to understand the context and message of their work. Knowing the difference between contexts and messages from other queer artists helps me understand the context and messages in my work.


Artists Researched in this project are:

  • Amos Mac

  • Juliana Huxtable

  • Claude Cahun

  • Njideka Akunyili Crosby

  • Robert Mapplethorpe

  • MIckalene Thomas

  • Felix Gonzalex Torres

  • Catherine Opie

  • Christina Ouarles

  • Paul Nugent

  • William Kent Ridge


The last three are ones that came later in the project so after research, I didn't have much time to implicate any inspiration across to my works or study further, but Nugent and Kent Ridge are two I intend to research again and go into depth with my next project due to their similar practice and works that inspire my ideas.


This is an example of how my artist research is laid out in my research notebook journal
