Three Hundred and Three Days

Date Posted: 05/06/2015 | Posted In: Latest news

Foundation Art & Design students at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College have put together an incredible end of year shows as part of their Final Major Project and a summation of their time on the course.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Three Hundred and Three Days,’ is high on impact and features work from across a range of art and design specialisms including ambitious large scale sculpture that explores process and non-traditional art materials, games’ art such as character design inspired by beasts, biologically inspired architectural structures, painting, puppetry, fashion and surface pattern designs inspired by sources as diverse as witchcraft, cubism and New York to nostalgia, flora and fauna.

Lydia Bailey has built a monumental sculpture that organically grows to inhabit the space in total contrast to the cool and considered design aesthetic of Chris Priestmans’ homage to geometry. Both Lydia and Chris are progressing to study Fine Art at Goldsmiths in London. Sophie Gowling’s painting installation is a reflection of architectural structure and uses colour and form to play with the illusion of space. Sophie is progressing to Newcastle University to study a degree in Fine Art.

Kath Wiper, course leader of Foundation Art at QE says:

‘The work is exciting, diverse and very revealing of contemporary art and design practice and reflects the underlying issues and concerns of a new generation of creative thinkers who are progressing to a national range of prestigious art and design degree courses.’

The exhibition   is the College’s Art Department in and is open to the public, Monday – Thursday of next week – 9.00-4.00.
