The MA in Fine Art

The course enables students to evaluate and develop their creative practice to the highest standards. It develops theoretical awareness, critical thinking and independent arts practice to a professional level.
The course facilitates critical debate between artists working within and across media areas including painting, photography, digital imaging, printmaking, sculpture, installation and site-specific art. Alongside their studio-based enquiry, they undertake related research into the broader context of contemporary art practices and theoretical debates.

The work of the five students showcased here represents the culmination of their creative enquiries whilst enrolled on the MA. Demonstrating a notable breadth both thematically and in terms of approach, each student has produced work that has sought to engage with a very particular set of ideas or issues including, but by no means limited to, biodiversity, familial memory, civil unrest and the visual aura of painting.

Taken collectively, such breadth is more broadly indicative of the scope of possibility afforded by the MA and on the basis of the work showcased here, the singular and highly developed nature of each student’s response.
