Artists explore the concept of space

Two University of Wolverhampton students have displayed their work in an exhibition at the Eagle Works Gallery in Wolverhampton.

Claire Buckerfield, from Wolverhampton, and Aimee Millward, 24 from Dudley, are studying for a Master’s degree in Fine Art at the Wolverhampton School of Art and were selected for the New Art West Midlands exhibition in 2016.

The ‘Line.Form.Space’ exhibition explores how the concept of space can be interpreted differently within drawing, painting and installation. 

Claire said:  “My practice is concerned with the expanded field of drawing – this work explores line, space and form whilst inhabiting the overlooked and unforgotten areas around us.

“Areas of insignificance are altered to become spaces of importance creating new perceptions and viewpoints, whilst enabling us to consider our own position in relation to them, considering that they are now inhabited in a different way.”

Aimee said: “My practice engages with investigating the relationship between reality and abstraction and also the space in-between. Influence is taken from space, landscape and everyday motifs which are all reduced to their bare essential structures until they are unrecognisable.”

The exhibition is running until Friday 26th May at the Eagle Works Gallery, Alexandra Street, Wolverhampton and viewing is by appointment.  Contact: or for more details.

Anyone interested in studying Fine Art should visit the next Open Day on Saturday 17th June 2017.
