Tabula Rasa Exhibition. Swansea College of Art.
Swansea College of Art, Tabula Rasa Exhibition – sampler of student artworks.
Swansea News Network shares a selection of some of the wonderful and at times challenging 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 Swansea College of Art posters below.
Rachel Williams – Rachel Williams’ experimental, fearless, political, diverse, poetic and passionate work spontaneously reacts and responds to immediate situations, having a direct and indirect perspective reacting to realisations of public situations. Concerned about the present and future of social and political aspects, touching on the subjects of homelessness, the decline of living standards and the treatment of the vulnerable in today’s society and how people are conformed, controlled, micromanaged and freedom is non-existent in the political ruling of politicians who appear clueless in the real world and blind to the damages they are instigating, consuming people as pawns for their own supremacy, gluttony, and status in the political world. Theresa May, Donald Trump, 2016 became the British and American political revolution where Democracy took a stance, politicians blaming the stupidity of the voters, creating scare mongering news and fake news, social media and the bleak struggle to the future the Government is portraying.
Creating a visual language and giving social and political issues a voice, inspired by the nonsensical art movement of Dada researching Disobedient objects and The Occupy movement.
Exploring and experimenting with combined media by means of poster art, hardboard painting, poetry, poster art, clay sculptures, text, digital media, cardboard.
Emily Scandone – Emily draws focus to society, environment and happening. She responds to events and elements through a variety of mediums, while creating an impact within an innovative style of installation.
Noleen Mccann – Mccann recently did some research regarding people’s tendency to want a home with a view. She discovered a property for sale in the Maritime quarter in Swansea SA1, and took an interest in this idea. It really highlights the importance people place on a view and the large amounts of money they are willing to pay to stake a claim on it. Can you really put a value on a view? It would seem you most definitely can, and as you draw back your curtains each morning, to reveal a living breathing artwork gracing your wall, you can indeed claim ownership of this carefully dissected landscape.
