Pre-Degree foundation students in Art & Design at Havant Sixth Form College are hosting a public art exhibition at Fasset, Langstone Technology Park, showcasing the final outcomes of their recent ‘Green’ project. The exhibition will run for one week and is officially launched on Thursday 12 March.
This is the first time the students have independently organised all aspects of an exhibition from conception through to curation. They have worked closely with Gary Medlow, Managing Director of Fasset, to develop a professional brief. They have a unique range of styles and mediums in our work including, 3D, Print Making, Fashion Contour, Info Graphics/Design, Fine Art and Illustration.
As a collaborative team of six, the students aim to raise the viewers’ awareness of environmental issues in both an optimistic and pessimistic way;
“Food wastage has always been a concern due to the amount that goes into landfill. Producing information that communicates well will enlighten this issue so we can work together to help make our environment a better place for the future”- James Aspey, formerly City of Portsmouth Boys School.
“Surrealism enables me to personify the Earth and all of its environmental suffering. I am inspired by oil painters throughout history and create work by building up paintings layer by layer”- Pollyanna Doyle, formerly St. Edmunds Catholic School.
“I am celebrating the beauty and preservation of wild flowers through a commercially viable medium, and I think my specialism of Fashion Contour will communicate this issue well”- Laurie Whiteley, formerly Priory School.
“Investigating different mediums allows me to provide a creative viewpoint that offers the public different interpretations on my view of environmental issues”- Lyka Levy, formerly Chichester High School for Girls.
“Upcycling is about changing people’s perception of what rubbish actually is. By creating sculptures from commonly thrown away objects, I hope to show the public how easy it is to make unique pieces of artwork from their rubbish”- Leigh Feilder, formerly City of Portsmouth Girls School.
“Environmental design should create real life solutions. Plantable paper combines waste materials with seeds which attract endangered insects, to help each of us make out world a little better, and a little greener.”- Tora Hayes, formerly Priory School.
Langstone Technology Park has provided the students with this rare opportunity to invent a thought-provoking exhibition and receive public feedback. It will be an invaluable experience for them to be a working within the confines of a client driven brief in their chosen specialist field.
Gary Medlow, Fasset: “Fasset is committed to improving its environmental credentials and this exhibition gives a fresh interpretation of the issues and initiatives that affect us all. Havant College has a reputation for creativity and talent and these students are really showcasing this. It’s a great opportunity for them to gain invaluable experience and I for one can’t wait to see the pieces in situ.”
