L3 FOUNDATION IN ART & DESIGN

"My approach to teaching has always been about the shared experience, a two way process of questioning, learning and understanding what it means to be human. Our collective experience through Covid 19 has been exactly this.  The Foundation virtual classroom has been a space to share these extraordinary times and creativity… this has been the driving force to help us through."

Fiona Donald: Tutor

"Our students have been a joy. Being part of such creativity, kindness and inclusiveness has made my job a pleasure."

Lou Oliva: Tutor

FIONA BLELOCH

In these times I'm finding it even more important to be able disentangle one day from another and find a sense of interest, humour and beauty in each day.  The arena may be smaller and more humdrum, birds building nests, yoga in the garden, tadpoles growing into frogs, by they present little stories which I like to document remember and share.

These landscape photographs with their dark contrast are quite representative of feelings I’ve had in lockdown; clouded over... but the people I’ve been surrounded by have allowed the light to come through.

Through the lockdown I have been inspired by nature. Walking daily with my dog I enjoyed watching spring arrive with a vengeance, because of the fine weather. Leaves are amazing and I have enjoyed learning how to eco print with them.

The delicacy of nature and the fine balance to protect it, influences all of my work. I enjoy working with different materials in 3Dimensions.

Bottle top sculpture:

I took something that would be classed as rubbish or unwanted and turn it into a body related sculpture, so people would look and think WOW. As I work at a bar I had a lot of materials that get thrown away each night, for example, hundreds of bottle caps, so I decided to save them each night for a couple of days.

Train Typology:

I used my old trains tickets collected from my journey every day, I had roughly over 150 tickets.  I picked apart and drew out the different parts of the train ticket to create mini sketches of the text, logos and other shapes that were on the tickets. Using the print room, I experimented with my ideas and thoughts.

FREYA DURKIN

A series of drawings that capture conversations with Elderly people who are suffering from dementia. As a care support worker I was able to gather primary research from dementia patients I had taken care of. Although I was unable to capture images or sketch due to the fast pace environment, I was able to write down what dementia patients said. I wanted to convey to effect of bleeding memories with ink- creating a monochromatic image to push the reality of dementia being unpredictable and frightening to the person and their loved ones.

DANIEL HARRISON

'A use of blended mediums and materials to create visually rich paintings and sculptures. In this new selection Harrison focuses on the fragility of attachment and the relationship between memory and material objects. The horror and decay found in his latest work ask us to question our attachment to clothes, technology and excess.'
