The Artists in Residence of the School of Craft and Design bring together a selection of the varied work they have been making over the past year. The opportunity to investigate and expand on seedling themes whilst connecting with other makers has led to totally new viewpoints for AiR thinker-makers.
It takes a long time to perfect new skills, especially when working on new themes. Agendas of form and function, the intrinsic qualities of materials, when to stop and when to push a piece further are all challenges to battle with. Resonance with research and technical exploration have been the outstanding benefit of the space and facilities provided at UCA Farnham. Valuable time and space have aided both physical and mental processes to grow.
The material pieces in the exhibition are not necessarily concluded or permanent statements. They are more new ways of seeing and working for the continuing curiosity of the artists with their professional practice.
The Air 2018 artists are: Kas Williams, Cara Wassenerg, Sigi Hill, Candy Matterson, Leo Duff, Hannah Viner and Haley Haddow.
