BA(hons) degree from Exeter College of Art and Design in #Printmaking

It was with a sense of great sadness that I walked around my old college’s studios and lecture hall as the final exhibition/installation took place.

‘abandoned along with the art education system that it served’

…to be redeveloped as executive housing (maybe).

Meeting old contemporaries there was a shock after thirty years. This is the place that enabled me to lead a varied life and as a result of my graduation show enabled me to eventually play at Hammersmith Odeon (now the Apollo), make page two of the Financial Times and has lead to my mental illness 🙂

Old lecture theatre and painting studio – Exeter Art College

The derelict painting studios in Exeter College of Art looked smaller than I remember – these were the spaces where I learnt my painting skills and the place where I was told to forget my painting skills.

Sarah Bennett used the empty lecture hall to install ‘Institutional Traits (Series 2)’ which comprised of two large printed photographs of the empty lecture theatre. … Continue reading →

To produce a image that is better than the image of the mind is to give rise to a product of catastrophe. (To achieve exactness by design and skill is to reach a point of exhaustion and famine.) It is therefore acceptable to assume that an artist that is categorized as a genius has failed more successfully than one who is mediocre.

Insitutional Traits 2012

The aesthetics of failure is not total destruction; it is the enjoyment of failure. The degradation of an image is a metaphor for aging and decay – for something to be perfect requires a belief in romanticism. To expect perfection is to turn your back on realism.

The political and ideological polarity of Russia and the USA during the cold war (retrospectively) makes an interesting starting point for a new project. Apparently there are rumors that the early days of the Russian space program were not only motivated by military and scientific advancement but a search for a new world to populate – to put citizens of the Russian Republic on once they had realized their ambitions of ensuring immortality. There was no God in Russia (officially) and the USA put their trust in God, both were chasing the same dreams, immortality and history. Gagarin achieved both by becoming a God (hero) in his own country and the rest of the world – all gods die young.

As an 11 year old I watched the first moon landing in 1969. I was mad about everything to do with space travel, I would read anything that was about rockets, cosmonauts and astronauts. Later in my life I shook the hand of a man who shook the hand of my all time hero Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, that was for me like touching history, if only secondhand (excuse the pun).

Background to previous West Buckland exhibition

Old images and ideas revisited and recycled – re-executed in print and paint. A body of work based around “Beauty and the Beast” a classic tale of love, rejection and prejudice, where the beauty is the beast and the beast is the beauty. An allegory, a symbolic representation or a metaphor for my feelings towards ART. Read more…
