ART and DESIGN (PEARSON)

AS Course Outline

‘Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a purpose and that's why I made works of art’
Felix Gonzalez-Torres
