Peer Reviews, Visionary Imagination

Peer Review 4

Tara,

I was really intrigued by the entry you wrote this week. It made me think back to a time years ago when I too would feel a sudden, odd rush off inspiration sweep over me and I would gather my old art diaries and scavenge for my brothers colouring pencils that were never actually in his schoolbag where they belonged and I would lay on my bed or my floor and draw and colour for hours. This was an odd experience for me as back then I was always a writer and a reader, not an artist of a visual variety. I feel as though you connected this sudden strike of inspiration with what we have learnt about the Visionary imagination really well and your image of your creation made a beautiful finishing touch to your entry. This was one that I have found I cannot fault and I hope this inspiration and imagination continues to strike.

Nicole.

Suzanne,

You have written such a detailed reflection on Brett Whiteley’s ‘Alchemy‘ which would perfectly summarize the artwork for those who have never seen it. I feel as though it’s especially important to focus on the lights, photographs and intertextuality which have all been brought together in order to create this piece as they make the piece unique while also showing the complexity of Whiteley’s creation which helps to take us as viewers on a journey into his art.

I strongly agree with your opinions and interpretations throughout your post and I feel as though the images really help to add the finishing touch to your entry. The only ‘downfall’ I have to comment on is that in comparison to your extensive response regarding Whiteley, your reflection on Blake’s engravings felt as though they were quickly added onto the end of the post in order to reflect on the entire day. I feel as though it may have been more beneficial for you to focus more on the one aspect of the day that you feel as though you gained the most from. I love forward to reading your future entries.

Nicole

Tylah,

I found you creative piece to be highly captivating. Your piece flows beautifully and the level of detail drew me into the story. I felt as though I could see and feel everything you said around me, but I feel as though an image of a burning fire or something else simplistic yet bright with ‘warm’ colours could help to enhance the visionary experience I gained as a reader. I also really liked your ‘dance with the devil’ phrase as this is a quote that is familiar with me which added onto the feelings I took away from your piece. I hope to see more creative pieces written by you in future.

Nicole

Raina,

Your post is really in-depth and insightful. I love how you share an interpretation of the poem and further back this up with detailed reference in order to convey your understanding and share your response to the blog topic at hand. While I believe the detail within your response is incredibly useful, I feel as though it would be more effective for you to share this in a more casual manner, still being a critical reflection but being slightly less analytical to help give the feel of a blog post rather than a short essay.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your entry and look forward to reading more of your insights in the upcoming weeks.

Nicole.
