    So with the exhibition round the corner and a number of art students stressing like crazy about the exhibition date, we thought it would be nice to give you all a little inside into some of our work and give you all a glimpse of what to expect when you come see the exhibition between the 8-11th of June. 



    There's a variety of aspiring artists and designers all working towards a final with totally different intentions and a direction of work.

    CHRIS PRIESTMAN // FINE ART

    "Industrial materials and their incredibly potent signifiers are perhaps the main theme of my work. plastics, woods, and rubbers all serve as part of the sculptural process that chooses to question the combination and visual aesthetics of materials so banal to contemporary industries, but so explorative to myself."









    LUKE PEARSON (LUKE PEREZ)// (my personal head masseuse) // FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY

    “Fetish as Fashion”. I will be working towards creating a broad range of surreal fetish fashion photo shoots. The concept will be based on fetish surrealism forms and objects. Such as the female form and relates to other living organisms. I have produced a variety of fashion photo-shoots and I am now in the process of making a short fashion film, of a female model, styled in a beige/cream knitted garment, from head to toe. "

    ELIZABETH DUFFY // TEXTILES 

    "My intention of this project is to explore the idea of nostalgia, and how past memories of childhood influence our future. I propose to produce a womenswear collection, (aiming at young women 18-25) based on ideas of childhood memories. The garments will be based on bringing my memories of my mind out into the clothing. This idea relates to the pathway stage as I created a project that was about a personal war of emotions, again this particular idea will explore not only personal memories of childhood, but also emotions. I plan to use a common idea of many fashion designers; how they recycle a trend from an earlier decade. Instead of recycling trends, I will be recycling childhood memories.

    I aim to determine what nostalgia is and what it entails to fully understand my theme. By looking at my own childhood, I will therefore have a starting point to my research. Looking through family photos to collect primary evidence. The structure of the garments will come from the inspiration of fashion designers to create a childlike and not too robust structure and the textile/fine art artist inspiration for the surface. 

    Throughout I intend to use a number of techniques to test out ideas and prepare fully for designing the final collection. After conducting the research, looking at all the imagery, and ideas I will have collected I will interpret the ideas into fashion surfaces, through, embroidery, fabric manipulation, embellishment, design structure, Photoshopping imagery, and sewing machine work. By using a variety of fabrics, and sewing mediums, I will be able to create different structures and textures that relates to the research I collect."


    LIVY THOMPSON// FASHION 

    "My final major project is gravitated towards the vibe of a city. It's kind of the realities of an urban environment utilising trips to New York and Amsterdam. Exploring the run down parts of the cities entwined with the effortless sex appeal that comes along with it. I want to produce a collection of garments and showcase this through photography or film."





    ABIGAIL AVERY// FASHION

    "By developing my specialism of fashion print; My work is about movement and travelling to different destinations, different places, maps and movement within landscape like the crashing of waves are expressed through line. I've also looked at what landscapes you see when you're traveling on a journey and how this is different to everyday life exploring city and costal landscapes. I plan to create a nostalgic look towards these points with my research supporting my development. I intend to translate this into print through clashing sea and city scares through a menswear collection."




    TASHA HINE// FASHION IN TEXTILES 

    "As a quote by Picasso, 'colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions'. My main inspiration for my cubism based work was to work with colour and shape and how this can represent an emotional attachment to a memory of time."







    KATE CHORLEY// FINE ART 

    "My project explores all aspects of Identity. I am interested in how everyone is different both in appearance and personality. I have been studying what gives each individual their own identity and how people can be associated to different groups/cultures in society based on this."








    SOPHIE GOWLING (IN CASE YOU DIDNT KNOW) // FINE ART

    Pathetic fallacy- The attribution of imparting emotions and responses to inanimate objects of nature. A perpetual inspiration for environments; the exhilarating emotion exposed is something I’ve constantly been interested in displaying onto canvas. I plan to continue to experiment with colour, materials and processes producing a series of paintings exposing New York’s natural commonplace through colour and texture. The knowledge, understanding and creative ability I’ve benefited from with colour and form at exhibitions at The Met, The Guggenheim and the vast collection of modern art of Rothko, Monet, Manet, Keifer etc; has contributed to the development of my intentions for my Final Major Project.My work is largely influenced by urban and rural landscapes. The contrast of the fluidity and geometric lines within the landscape. I will analyse properties of paint’s thickness, flexibility and supplementary materials using thickening mediums and glosses. My intentions are to take creative risks within my work and increase the limits I can work on with scale and mediums. 








    BETH HARDY// ARCHITECTURE 

    "Titled "Biologically inspired architectural experience" my project began by exploring the structures within nature. I began looking at the spine, after researching the work of kengo Kuma and the beautiful life like sculptures by Theo Jansen, I developed my own style and integrated the biological structure into an architectural design I had been working with.

    I am currently working with the structures of cells within the body, and plan on creating a sculptural piece that shares likeness to the shapes and textures using a mixture of materials, that can then be perceived architecturally."









    GEORGINA HALL// FINE ART 

    "My intentions with my final major is to play with tactile materials and incorporate the audience with their senses of sight and touch. with feminist connotations, the outcome may make some cringe, but draw them in with texture and witty puns."
