You are required to produce a Critical Reflection Essay drawing on the approaches of critical and reflective writing. You MUST address the following points in your essay:
- The Artist’s Intention – Give a brief description of the artist and his/her work. Discuss in depth the vision of the artist and give a dominant reading, through research, of the artist’s work in context.
- The Critics – Choose at least 2 writers who have written about the artist/practitioner’s work and critically discuss how their views have affected your own. Cite references to these writers’ views within the essay appropriately using the Harvard Style of Referencing and also provide a reference list at the end of the essay.
- Subjective Viewpoint – Give your own view of the work and justify your views and judgements with reasons supported by research where possible. Critically relate the artist’s work to your own work and evaluate what aspects of the work are relevant to you in terms of your vision, your techniques and style, your approach, your aspirations and your overall practice.
- Self-assessment and Action Plan – As a result of this close and critical study of the artist and his/her work, make an assessment of what you have learnt and an action plan of how you would apply this learning to your practice in the coming academic year. Be very specific and cite examples where necessary.
