MA Exhibition, Bath Spa University

Art, Exhibition

I have quite a few events to catch up on, so let’s do it in chronological order. First up, the MA show at Bath Spa Uni, where I’ll be doing a third year art course starting next week (3D/ceramics).

The PV was Friday 18th September, and I went with a fellow mature student studying (Fine) Art, Viv Meadows. We parked and entered from the back of the building, so encountered Becca Quirk’s 3D work on the way in, which I loved. Echoes of Richard Long…

I talked with the artist about her influences and my enjoyment of the work, then moved on to see what else caught my eye. There was so much to see that it had to have a particular significance to make me put down the bag and coat, pull the tablet out and take snaps.

The next artist who did it for me was Caroline Truss – some of her works reminded me of Marlene Dumas, who I discovered during my Art Foundation course. I aim to do more loose ink drawings myself, soon…

The room next door contained 2D and 3D work by Steve Joyce, here is ‘Fence 2’, a crash barrier constructed from corrugated cardboard…

This show is on for another week or so, do catch it if you can. I’ve hardly touched on what’s there – textiles, a couple of ceramic artists, film, etc. But that will have to do for this post – more exhibition reports to come.
