"Scope" the new exhibition from level 3 year 2 fine art students was showcased this week in the campus gallery space. A course that had a particular reputation for installing extremely professional shows with colleague Maria at the former helm of it all. The show was an emulsion of visual arts showcasing an eclectic and refreshing approach to contemporary art. With only a small group of students, some may have felt the gallery was going to look empty, but not with this lot. Every surface, crook, corner and floor tile was immersed in print work, photography, sculptures of different scales and materials, video projected performance art and an industrial light show that gave the gallery space a real mysterious warehouse feel like we were in the depths of the east end.
Each project although repeated in techniques at some points was completely individual to the owner delivering richness in context and content. By far some of the most diverse and interesting sculpture work I have seen presented in the gallery in a long time. This super army of young professional artists now led by new course leader Andy really put on a show to be proud, and can now certainly sit in a high place as they embark on the final stages of their course preparing for the Final major project showdown.
