Made in Arts London x Metro Imaging Mentorship Awarded!
It gives us great pleasure to announce the recipient of this year’s Made in Arts London x Metro Imaging Mentorship is Rosie Haynes!
All final year UAL students who use aspects of photography in their practice were invited to apply for the mentorship opportunity. Shortlisted to the final seven and invited to a video interview with Arts Programmer, Lotte Dawson, Metro’s Marketing and Partnerships Manager, Kate O’Neill and Director, Steve Macleod, BA Fine Art student Rosie was selected to receive the sought after mentorship!
Largely working with digital collage, using photoshop and appropriated imagery, through her collages, Rosie focuses the audience on the “problematic yet seductive relationship I have with traditional modes of femininity”.
The panel were particularly intrigued by Rosie’s final year project that explores developing different strategies of disrupting the surface intention of a setrotypical feminine image, “in an attempt to reconcile my own relationship to it, or discomfort with/simultaneous seduction by it”.
Her fascination is also with the image itself, how an individual interprets the surface of an image and how these differences in “seeing”, such as the male or female gaze, change the viewers relationship to an image.
The opportunity of the MiAL x Metro Imaging mentorship will see Rosie receive bespoke advice for a period of twelve months, as she navigates her way through her studies and into her emerging career. She will also receive £1,000 credit to be used on in-house services from Metro and have access to all their facilities to support her continued practice. Along side this Rosie will also join Made in Arts London as a one of our Artists and we think you’ll agree we are very excited to see how Rosie and her practice benefit from the mentorship.
Keep an eye out for Rosie Haynes’ work which will be available to purchase from the Made in Arts London website with our new cohort of artists next year.
