Uthmann said: I think that ‘See, Think, Wonder’ that we do in class is like what artists do when they work, and what they make us do when we try to work out what it is.
Ayaan: Maybe the drawing by Pasmore could be called ‘City’ because if you look closely the circles seem to represent buildings. (Actually, this one was called Spiral Motif).
Maaria: One of the pictures looks like a person, but Uthmann said it was an ocean, showing the reflections from the sky in the water (this one is The Lifeboat)
Uthmann: Its like a leaf, very simple, just lines (it is Water Lily). Spiral Motif is also like a river or the sea with flowing
Naeema: The Snowstorm is like baskets piled up together, with balls of wool, or fabric or clothes in them.
Ayaan: Its like tornadoes!
