BA Ceramic Design, Central Saint Martins
Niamh’s work is all about collections and the ways in which we choose to arrange our surroundings, choosing to focus on the infinite ways in which objects can be consorted, providing there is a common thread.
Delicately applying details from brutalist architecture to incredibly accessible homeware and lighting fixtures, Niamh really drew us in with her collection of small vessels, which she left free to be arranged and rearranged to her visitors hearts content. We want them all!
BA Fine Art: Photography, Camberwell
Cleverly put together we were moved by Georgia’s installations, which explores the junctures of everyday life within our surroundings, by translating them into visual and acoustic experiences. She is now working on technologies which will filter into society and engage with our minds, watch this space.
BA Fine Art, Wimbledon
Having already been shortlised for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries earlier this year, been awarded the CASS Materials Grant at the same time as becoming a MiAL Artist and been a smash hit at the Affordable Art Fair its fair to say that 2016 has already been a smash hit for Violet, before she even graduates!
Dealing with issues such as gender, sexuality, spirituality, displacement and identity through her figures, Violet also references African culture and traditions in an autobiographical way. Her aim is to use her work to give her audience more exposure and understanding of minorities and subcultures.
BA Fine Art, Chelsea
Reka’s work is playful balance between the virtual and the physical, surprisingly intimate in the way that the viewer must interact to reveal the emotional and mental spaces Reka has constructed.
