Once the artwork is finished, it’s safely stored away, waiting to be titled. I have over 10 nameless artworks. Knowing all to well I can no longer ignore this, I’ve put Photoshop to one side and have taken to Microsoft Word. Armed with my trusty dictionary I’m scribbling together descriptive words that I feel connect well with my pieces through process, style and inspiration.
So without further ado, here’s what I did to name my artwork.
- Researching other artworks, I noted the connection between the piece and the title.
- Within my own work, I focused on the key elements and linked them to feelings and descriptive words.
- I took into account the stories and inspiration behind my artwork, to offer a new experience away from what is already visible.
- I kept the titles very short and simple.
