Cat Polet

I really enjoyed the session on modern art. We looked at Picasso during this session and something that really struck me about his work was the way he distorts and twists the human form. I wanted to create work that was figurative and expressive and looking at Picasso helped with this.

From what I've found out about Picasso, his work is autobiographical, to a certain extent. My work is too and I felt that I related to his work because of this.
