About

This is a chance to see work by 11 BA Fine Art students, all of whom in their final year at Central Saint Martins. All the work will be coming to the gallery directly from the studio and will give viewers a chance to preview work that the students are now working on ready for their Degree Show later this year.

Artists:

Bernette Boost. Through an exploration of childhood experiences Bernette’s work considers the in-between world that sits between reality and the dream.

Robbie Carman appropriates text from road and shop signs to create his own unique signage which seems to speak in protest against the sanitizing gentrification of our cities.

Nathaniel Faulkner’s work and research explores the way in which the motifs, signs and symbols associated with myths of the ancient world have become appropriated by the modern day image makers to create iconic contemporary images which have themselves become part of the myth of our modern world. 

Sally Gorham explores systems of control in abstract painting through the use of different materials and surfaces.

Ellie Hawkes. Using digital processes to manipulate photographic prints of nature Ellie explores the relationship between the internal and exterior territory.

Grace Hinton. Through the making of playfull sculptural forms Grace explores contemporary gender inequality.

Inca Jordan uses text, screenshots and painting to examine questions about surveillance and the role of the internet and automated online systems in contemporary society.

Antoine Langenieux-Villard. Through an experimental process of production, which carries forward or destroys previous ideas Antoine questions the very foundations of the image by playing and disrupting the vocabulary of painting.

Milton Patrick. Combining painting and the use of printed circuit boards (PCB) as artifacts Milton explores our interaction with technology, rendering the PCB a symbolic relic of our digital age. 

Lucy Ralph. Inspired by the poetry of Jaques Prevert Lucy’s paintings connect her own experiences, current world affaires and carefully selected objects to create fictional, timeless, placeless compositions that embody a sense of struggle and hope.

Luren Zhou uses her work to consider the voyeuristic nature of the objectification of women and the fetishisation of the props which become part of the performance as ‘Men look at women and women watch themselves being looked at.’ (J. Berger)
