The culmination of three years of innovation and creativity has been on display at Goldsmiths, University of London in recent weeks as students from a range of courses showcased their work.
Exhibitions and performances from BA Fine Art, BA Fine Art and History of Art, BA Media and Communications, and MA Art Psychotherapy students featured in various venues on campus.
The BA Design show, ‘M-O-D’, took place at the Bussey Building in Peckham and included projects ranging from a raincoat that reacted to contact with acid rain, to an exhibition exploring space and the feminine body.
William Vetch’s SuperSoaker is painted using oil on canvas. Both paintings are visually figurative, but are constructed with an abstract methodology, largely driven by colour in order to create an expressive experience. They include references to historical painting through renaissance compositions and Van Dyke horses crossed with boxers, and the all American cowboy boot and an angry boy.
William said: “The scenes conjure up a battlefield where the paintings explore the nature of today’s socio-political situation with regard to masculinity in all its glory and insufficient.”
A number of Degree Shows run from 14 to 18 June in various locations across Goldsmiths campus including the Richard Hoggart, Professor Stuart Hall and Ben Pimlott buildings.
As well as the Ben Pimlott Building, exhibitions from BA Fine Art students will also be displayed in the Laurie Grove Baths and the St James Hatcham Building.
