Tabula Rasa Exhibition. Swansea College of Art.
Swansea College of Art, Tabula Rasa Exhibition – sampler of student artworks.
All week this week, Swansea News Network will be sharing a selection of some of the wonderful artworks by the Fine Art Degree, 1st and 2nd-year students at the city’s Swansea College of Art. Full details of the exhibition on posters below.
Ilona Priede – Priede has been working on overcoming perfectionism in art and has worked a lot with continuous line drawing to start appreciating the form rather than putting pressure on herself to create “perfect” images.
Lily-Ella Westacott – Westacott has a fascination with words and how they change in specific sites. The artist works by leaving temporary words in different places using different materials, chalks & spray cans etc, and also uses wire to create installation pieces. Alongside the text, Westacott works observationally, creating drawings using continuous line of mainly nature and portraits.
Aimee James – James’ intention is to connect science and art through her work. She uses a microscope to look closely at objects that surround her daily and uses the specimens as a way of looking into herself. By taking swabs from loved ones and creating bacteria cultures from these, she hopes to say something about those most important to her, looking at them as family portraits, except in a bacterial form.
