Film/Video Comparison

Video-Film Comparison from Olivia Flick on Vimeo.

This is a piece I worked on with Owen Rocosky, Jared Stryker and Omer Wasim for our Cinematography and Lighting class. It is a comparison between film and video formats. The frame on the left is 16mm color film shot on a Bolex and the frame on the right is HDV shot on a Sony V1U. Some of the shots were filmed by both cameras simultaneously and some were shot one at a time due to the positioning of the camera.

Cooper Photos

I recently found a folder filled with prints from my Cooper weekend photo class. Since I haven't posted anything in a while, I figured this would do.

I just set up a Vimeo account, so check out some of my work there as well!

Also, for anyone on LinkedIn, here's my profile there.

Today I spent my last class at the Walters for Drawing from the Masters. This is a line study of a painting by Alfred-Emile Stevens called News From Afar.

Not So Self Portrait

This is a self portrait that I forgot I did about a month ago. I'm not really happy with it. I have a lot of trouble with portraits looking like who they are supposed to be. I guess this looks like me only much younger. I drew it in one sitting, which is usually not good for me when it comes to tricky subjects because I don't notice my mistakes or cannot recognize how to fix them. In this case, I can now see that the features are too big for the overall shape and size of the face. The more I look at it the more it frustrates me, so lets just say it is NOT a self portrait. There, I feel better about it already.

Drawing From the Masters

These are the two most recent assignments from my drawing class: a copy of a drawing by Van Gogh and a drawing copy of a watercolor by Carl Larsson.

Museum Sketches

These are some sketches from my Drawing From the Masters class from visits to museums (the Walters and the BMA).

I had an assignment for my Drawing from the Masters class to copy a work done in color so I chose a Winslow Homer watercolor. I was intrigued by his technique of applying watercolor opaquely so I attempted to do my own opaque watercolor of my dog Bandita.

Another set of masters' copies from Ingres, Rubens, and Rembrandt and two sketches of sculptures, one by Erastus Dow Palmer and the other by Hans Schuller.

These are four masters' copies from my Drawing from The Masters class. One is a line study of a Uglow painting, one is a tonal study of a work by Boucher, another is a line study of Raphael Sanzio's study of Michelangelo's David and the fourth is a tonal study of a painting by an artist that I actually cannot identify, so if anyone knows who it is, I'd love to know.

Cooper Photo

Here's a print from a photo class I took at Cooper Union my senior year in high school.

These two works I did in EMAC last year. They were both made using photoshop.

The above drawings are blind contours, meaning I did not look at the paper as I drew, only the subject, and they are all one continuous line. The drawings below are also contours but the are not blind.

Bag Abstraction

This is a charcoal triptych for an assignment from drawing where we instructed to abstract an object by magnifying it.

Tuesday, January 26, 2010


Here are two drawings I did last year. The assignments were to do drawings using an object of our choice. We did a lot of sketches and drawings using this same object. These are the two largest of those drawings. For the object I chose a pair of shoes I got at a vintage store.

Here are some mazes I did while experimenting with materials. I used the clear CD's you find in those packs of CD+R's when you buy them. There is only one in each so my materials were limited. I just happened to have a few packs and they each had one of the blank CD's.

This is from an assignment for Drawing II where we had to combine a human with either a plant, animal or machine. I chose to mix the human form with a beetle. I took out a book from the library on beetles and combined sketches of their antennae and legs and wings with a photo of myself.

Here are a few nude studies I did last year in drawing. They were probably each done in under 30 seconds, some under 15 seconds. Its not an excuse, I promise, just a fact.

De La Tour

Here are two paintings that I did this past semester in Painting II, one for our "Master Mentor" assignment and one for my final. The Master Mentor assignment required we use a "master" painter, in my case Georges de la Tour, to inspire our work. I used him because of his sense of light and dark within most of his works. specifically I looked at his Magdalena series. I decided to do another piece inspired by him for my final. They are hard to photograph because although they are mostly black, the paint is reflective and it is hard to get the same feeling from a photo that you would from standing right in front of the painting.

Ok so into my paintings. These two paintings I did in freshman year, last year, Painting I. The assignment was to paint from a photo collage. I took a photograph I had taken of a beautiful dead bird on the sidewalk, doubled up the bird in the one image from two different angles, and then made a smaller piece that had three panels, well one and 2 halves really. I painted the two pieces at the same time going back and forth between the two to avoid varying color palettes and techniques, a method I had not tried until then, but now use often due to it's convenience when working with slow drying paint (oil). Below are some detail shots from the larger bird.
