- Amy Hugget
- Charlotte Belamy
- Emma Langley
- Ilona Sekita
- Jacquiline Lupahla
- Karina Cabanikova
- Nadine Paige Riley
- Nikki Langlands
- Rebecca Homer
Jacquiline Lupahla, one member of the group, explains how the group came up with the title Perception:
This group of student of level 4 combined their interested in the human figure to organise a show displaying the work of 9 artists ranging from Level 5 to MA.
Investigating the artist’s view on the human figure and how this can be portrayed to the viewer, ARTlife explored a variety of mediums and techniques ranging from Photography, Paint and Sculpture.
Anna Sheppard, a level 5 student, was one of the artists attending the exhibition.
The candles were part of a series of work of which their content explored the female body in particular. Although behind its aesthetics the notion of sadistic tendency became apparent.
Marcus Tang, a Level 6 student, is also one the artist chosen for the exhibition. The influence of PopArt Using helped me think about this unconventional medium.
So..let’s see what the visitors thought:
