After an inspiring trip to ARCO Madrid to take in hundreds of sculptures and paintings from a huge section of international contemporary artists – the art students started their own sculptural projects.
The first stages involve using traditional and non-traditional sculptural materials and manipulating them in such a way to develop an instinctive understanding of their materiality.
Using the famous verb list from artist Richard Serra and drawing inspiration from artists they are studying, students have been undertaking their own experiments. In these small sculptural studies, there are already very interesting interactions and influences – most coming from Gormley and Bourgeois.
As the sculptural projects progress, the students will make these pieces more their own and present their final work.
