Close Up : What can you see?
studio 106 is delighted to host and support the first exhibition of works from The Fulham Boys School students. This exhibition is not only the first time that these students have ever exhibited work in an art gallery but many students had never done printing before. Therefore, this exhibition is a way of show casing their ‘work in progress’ and they can continue to explore ideas from these works.
These works are a collaboration of both the Year 7 and Year 8 students. The Year 7’s have been challenging their perceptions of the Alphabet, as we know it, by creating their own versions. These prints collectively create a ‘new’ Alphabet; however, look closely at them individually to see the interesting lines and shapes that are created. The Year 8 students have been looking at objects around them more closely through different techniques of drawing and print. Here they exhibit their wood block prints to highlight the variation of lines of the bark that they have then overlaid with different coloured tissue papers. Their responses with colour reflect a wide range of influences from current events to more universal themes.
