Fine Art (BA)
Painting and Drawing
The course both encourages and supports our students to explore contemporary approaches to painting and drawing through a breadth and depth of experience which is not possible on a multi-disciplinary fine art course.
Given time and specialist tuition our students develop their own individual and unique approaches to the discipline or disciplines they work within. Some opt for a singular approach rooted within painting or drawing and develop an in-depth understanding of their own practice both within a historical framework but also, importantly within a contemporary context. As can clearly be seen from this year’s graduates some have also chosen to work across the traditional boundaries of a specific medium having worked either in a variety of approaches or with combinations of various mediums within a single work. Painting and drawing can be seen alongside monoprint, in combination with photo-silkscreen, and in dialogue with sculpture, photography and digital technology.
With this graduate exhibition marking the end of the course for this cohort of students we feel proud that they have achieved this. Within the context of what has been a very difficult year they have kept working and continued to push forward with their work, for this we would like to congratulate them and wish them luck as they begin their journey within the art world.
