Cardiff School of Art and Design announces its first ever Masters Exhibition to showcase both MA and MFA graduates. This year, 15 graduates from Korea, India, Spain, Finland and the UK will combine the outcomes of both academically and practically weighted research routes in an exhibition that encompasses a wide range of artistic disciplines; sculpture, painting, printmaking, installation and audio-visual. In studying so closely as a cohort, these disciplines have not become isolated within the departments of a typical academic environment. Instead, the boundaries of artistic genres have blurred and merged. Printmaking meeting installation, street art meeting sculpture; this renders the possibilities for a Masters Exhibition infinite. Spanning the Sculpture Studios, the 4th and 5th floors of the Howard Gardens Campus, the work varies dramatically in scale. A towering pink bunny commands the main entrance space and impacting wooden structures fill the 5th floor fit to burst. Language, obsession, occupation, illustration, memory and the architectural qualities of landscape form the premise of honest accounts of personal experience, illustrated through video, photography and installation. Attention to process pushes painting and drawing beyond the limitations of canvas, brings material manipulation to the surface and produces tiny, meticulously made pins. As the exhibition marks the first graduating year for the new MFA course, it is befitting that it should reflect the inevitable diversity of artists from both courses and that this, in turn, provides a tone for the exhibition in its entirety. The eclectic nature also demonstrates how, at masters level, the focus on concept and finding its appropriate medium of expression can instigate a departure from an artist's initial training and professional practice. This year's graduates are: Liz Colucci (MA) Faye Darby (MFA) Becky Davies (MFA) Alan Goulbourne (MFA) Cathryn Lowri Griffith (MFA) Dan Griffiths (MA) Dipyaman Kar ( MFA) Jorge Lizalde (MFA) Jessie Mason (MFA) Jungsook NAM (MA) Minna à 'berg (MA) Hilary Wagstaff (MA) Jo Ward (MFA) Christina West (MFA) Dom Williams (MA)
