Comprising a broad range of media – including painting, sculpture, printmaking, installation, video, photography and virtual reality – this rich and diverse exhibition reflects the hard work and dedication invested by our current 3rd year students, in addition to the technical and academic teams who have supported them throughout their studies.
Art making is a process of reasoning – of grappling with specific subject matter and material until a final resolution is established. In an academic context, artworks are developed out of an individual’s desire to learn, to discover – to rationally justify what is believed – through the employment of creative action.
Political and cultural references underpin some works, whilst others concentrate on aesthetic sensibilities – shape, colour, texture, form. Whatever their content, 45 different processes of logical reasoning have been undertaken here in order to generate this exhibition, and the works on display are testament to this long and challenging process.
