The BA Fine Art exhibition show was definitely one that I was truly inspired by. This is because there were so many inspiring pieces of art that truly amazed me due to the fact of the various styles of painting, photography, installations used within the exhibition. As I walked around the exhibition it was amazing how many pieces instantly grabbed your attention and would have you question them. To me some of the questions that came up were, why were they colours used? why was it placed like this? What intentions and aims did these artists have to come to this final conclusion? By coming to these various amount of questions it allowed me to relate back to my own work and see in what ways would I like to take it further. Here are some of the works that I was deeply inspired by.
When looking through I variety of different pieces it was great looking at how various types of intensity and soft qualities had been used within the works. Furthermore when listening to some of the audio it allowed me to become more connected to the art who had produced the work which I found very organic and symbolic. The reason why I felt this was because it allowed me to feel the meaning of the work and see how original and personal the work was which I found very touching and emotional. Here are some more examples of some more work from the BA Fine Art Exhibition.
Furthermore when exploring around different parts of the exhibition from the triangle space to the cookhouse it allowed me to see how each part of the artworks told its own story which helped me to travel through different moments of time, lifestyles and memories. In addition by doing this it allowed me to gain a range of different meanings and aspects of each piece of work and imagining how it different from stage 1 to the final outcome. In my view I really liked how some of the pieces had a cinematic feel towards them and allowed you to interpret your own story towards them. Here are some more examples from artwork in the BA Fine Art first year exhibition.
In my opinion I thought that the BA Fine Art exhibition was a huge success because of the diverse styles of art which were shown within the exhibition which hugely engaged me as I walked through each section of it. It was great listening to people’s conversations along the way which allowed me to see which aspects of art they liked and what questions they had towards it. The environment within the exhibition was quite inviting if I say myself because everyone engaged with everyone and it was great seeing how certain kinds of art engaged with each other and how everyone instantly engaged with each other. By experiencing this it allowed me to see how different types of art can be social, economic, political, environmental and can be displayed in many different ways to show how our society is developing more and more. Here are some more examples of works from the BA Fine Art Exhibition (Year 1).
Also by doing this exhibition with other students on the course it has allowed me to broaden my knowledge on different ideas related to art and it has allowed me to become more of a risk taker when producing pieces of artwork. Furthermore by contributing to the exhibition it has allowed me to see what other pathways I can take to develop my work further and talking to other students on the course has also helped to contribute to it. In my view I really like how I can interact with different pieces of artworks, observe them closely and visual in my mind how they can develop further. Here are some more examples of other pieces of work from the BA Fine Art exhibition.
By being part of the exhibition it helped me to gain a range of different experiences for example, collaborating with other students to make decisions about how works should be placed and how could the whole exhibition be displayed towards the viewer. In my view by doing this it allowed me to gain more confidence, have ideas about expanding and developing how exhibitions I do are going to be produced. In my opinion I would carry on these methods and engage more with sharing my ideas towards other students so that we all expand, develop and motivate ourselves to keep on generating more great ideas. Here are some example of my work from the exhibition taken from a range of different angles.
