Five student works to look out for in our Foundation Art and Design Show 2015

Our Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is an intensive, one-year programme of discovery, experimentation and exploration – where students work across a range of processes and materials, finding their feet as an artist, designer, or maker in the process.


And the annual Foundation Art and Design Show is our students’ week-long opportunity to show off the results of their eye-opening and unforgettable year.

This year’s show, open now until Sunday 19th April, sees another spread of very high quality and equally diverse work, from Photography to Fashion, Animation to Illustration, Fine Art to Film – and more.

Below we’ve highlighted just a small selection of some of the excellent work on show – with five students to look out for. In no particular order…

Remy Harman

The Distortion of Memories

Pathway: Visual communication

Throughout my work I have used practical photographic techniques to explore a way of presenting a period of time passing. During this exploration I began looking at the conscious and subconscious choices we as human beings make to remember things.

My final piece looks at selective memories and the conscious decision we make to share with others. The stencils act as a representation of the choices made of what to share or repeat with others. The contrasting techniques explore in what depth they are shown.

Toby Carlyon

Architecture vs. Space.

Pathway: Visual communication

I intend to explore the relationship citizens have with the space which surrounds them; looking at how we either merge in with or stand out from our surroundings.

Thread as a medium represents how a space is made up of individual elements that combines into a whole.

The 3D approach is representative of the physical space around us, bringing the image from 2D into a 3D piece enables the audience to have more interaction and analyse whether they merge within their surroundings or stand out.

Alice Carter-Robinson

'Continuous Line'

Pathway: Fine art

The current body of work I have created is about the collaboration between music, art, and the audience. The aim is to convey the different components within a musical structure and making them visible to the eye. The visual representation of my musical score (co-written with Euan Evans) challenges the way we usually perceive these usually disparate elements. Bringing together the separate elements to create a physical representation of sound; creates a collaborative aesthetic expressed as an installation.

Music shapes what we see.

Matteo Crescenzi

'Untitled'

Pathway: Fine art

My work turns your attention to the relationship between man and nature, trying to identify and define the role of the artist and the role of nature in art.

With this work I want to emphasise the collaboration between humans and nature, recognising the authority of the nature on matter and form. Focusing on man's talent to use nature as primordial energy, without dominating it, but by harmonizing it through a process of activation and composition. Applying external forces, the matter reinvents itself, radically changing its own language and aesthetic.

Jules Davies

Diversity of a Delusional range of vision

Pathway: Fashion and Textiles

The concept of my piece revolves around hallucinations, delusions and distortion. My focus throughout the project has been to work with and create textile prints. Mixed Media artist Yayoi Kusama has been a huge influence throughout my project as the concept of her work matches so accurately to mine. I also gained influence from 70’s fashion, where Hallucinogenic prints were very popular alongside the modern print trend of graphical prints. By immersing yourself in the pieces I've created, exploring every angle, you will begin to discover more about my intentions and interests.
