Eye-catching artwork on display to public
Glasswork based on war atrocities, a photographic documentary of poverty stricken children in China and an animation where rabbits fight over a carrot are among diverse work exhibited by talented University of Wolverhampton MA students.
More than 50 graduating Master’s will be showcasing their work to the public from Saturday (September 5) in the annual Wolverhampton School of Art MA Degree show.
They will exhibit multi-disciplinary work ranging from painting, sculpture, print, illustration and photography to audio-visual pieces, animation, glass work and installation. The various displays also includes an interesting installation with a beating heart that is placed within a coffin.
Sam Hope, Head of Wolverhampton School of Art (Est.1851) said: “From our past through to the present day, there’s been a long and favourable association between the Wolverhampton School of Art (Est.1851) and Wolverhampton Art Gallery. We are proud to be returning for the second year running for our annual MA Show and would encourage members of the public to attend and see the talent we have.
“The exhibition is the culmination of the excellent work undertaken by our Master’s students over the last year or two and shows the diversity of creative thinking, skills and professional approach to practice that they have achieved in that time.
Both full-time and part-time students have come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences to contribute to extend their individual practices and develop their art and design thinking.
The show runs from Saturday September 5 – Saturday September 12 at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
