Bright futures for city arts students
7:30am Wednesday 25th June 2014 in News
WORK by graduating creative arts and furniture design students at City of Oxford College has gone on show in two end-of-year exhibitions.
Megan Newton, 19, exhibited a paper craft installation inspired by the work of Colorado-based artists Hair and Deepti.
Miss Newton, who has just completed a foundation diploma in art and design at the college, said: “The installation portrays sadness, anger, fear and happiness, with each emotion personified within their self-contained environment.
“This final project has helped me to realise my passion for illustration and revisit techniques I developed earlier in the course. I am going on to study graphic design with illustration at Amersham College.”
Fellow foundation diploma student, Ashleigh Wozencroft, also 19, took inspiration from the Guiyu rubbish dump in China to explore how constant advances in digital technology impact on waste and recycling.
Miss Wozencroft, who will study visual communication at Arts University, Bournemouth, next year, said: “My installation uses digital projections, with messages projected onto my own rubbish dump of boxes.”
The exhibitions opened on June 16 and ran until Saturday at the college’s Oxpens Road campus.
