Tabula Rasa. Exhibition. Swansea College of Art
Swansea College of Art, Tabula Rasa Exhibition. A 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 are in the poster.
Dylan Williams – Dylan Williams’ work is primarily focused on the mundanity of everyday life. Whether through drawings in sketchbooks or lens based matters, Williams attempts to capture simple and often unnoticed scenes of people going about their everyday life. Various different values of these photographs and drawings then feed into and are collaged into paintings.
Steffan Hadley – What is too big? It’s a fundamental question these days; to an ant we are humongous but to a star much like ours, we are small. But yet we seem to continue to grow and build bigger, reaching out for some truth as to how small we are. Our art is our way of understanding our own existence in one sense; we reach out to each other through our works and connect with each other through the use of a Gallery. But how big does a gallery have to be? Is there any reason that our galleries have to grow huge? Why can’t they be small, small enough to take the works of the artist and shrink them down, changing the perspective of the piece?
That is our mission here at the Minitopian Art Gallery, not only to be a new type of gallery but to bring to light the perspective of artists work and show who we are; not only to ourselves but to the many smaller organisms that share this beautiful planet with us.
Laura Simmons – Laura Simmons’ artistic interest lies within representations of the grotesque and the perception of women. Simmons transgresses the way in which females should be presented through the medium of paint, photography, and performance.
