PUTNEY SCHOOL OF ART STUDENTS GRADUATE WITH FLAIR:

PSAD DIPLOMA GRADUATION EXHIBITION 2017

 

Discover the secret life that flourishes in unexplored corners of the city; piece together a colourful insight into a woman’s life from the shell collection and mementoes she left behind; see the landscape abstracted and re-made through mark-making and gesture; experience the power of memory and sensation to transform landscape painting and life-drawing afresh.

 

See all these at the Putney School of Art and Design, as five graduating students display their final work with a free exhibition titled Looking Again: Other Lives.

 

The show is the culmination of a two-year Diploma course which includes an in-depth examination of art history and movements as well as a diverse range of practical skills such as screen printing, etching, digital photography, oil painting, life drawing, illustration, 3D construction and collage.

 

“The diversity of signature styles and approaches is remarkable”, says tutor Jan Malaszek.  “The students have produced a fascinating range of work that will reward close examination and provoke discussion”.

 

Works are for sale and include paintings, collages, prints and mixed media pieces.

 

  • The artists are Valerie Bernardini, Louise Devonshire, Lucy de RoeperJane Wilkinson and Nuray Yigiter.
  • Putney School of Art and Design’s Diploma is a two-year part-time course providing structured study for students in a variety of media and styles.
  • The exhibition runs from the 10th – 28th July 2017.  College opening hours are 9.30am-8.30pm Mon-Fri, 9.30-4pm Saturday, closed Sundays.
  • For further details about the PSAD course, contact Belinda Bates at Putney School of Art and Design: BBates2@wandsworth.gov.uk

 

 


 

ARTIST BIOGRAPHIES

 

Valerie Bernardini is a professional photographer. She works mainly with children by leading art projects in primary schools. Her involvement with the children led her naturally to the notion of small secret places where strange and fragile things with beautiful textures, shapes and colours grow by themselves, like organic creatures colonizing our urban landscape. Her taste for adventure and discovery has led her to experiment with mixing ceramic, textile and screen-printing media.

 

Lucy de Roeper is a commissioned artist working in oils and acrylics.  She specialises in landscapes and interiors.  Her interest in capturing water and reflections began whilst surrounded by the landscape gardens of Stowe School.  She is now equally fascinated by reflections and translucency in the urban landscape and exploring new possibilities by means of abstraction.  Lucy studied for a foundation year at City and Guilds as well as taking the Charles Cecil course in Florence.

 

Louise Devonshire is a documentary TV producer whose job is to look for interesting, untold stories beneath the surface. An inspirational term of life drawing at Putney led her to apply similar instincts to the human form. She wanted to get under the skin of life drawing and use it as a gateway to capture something of the shifting, multiple nature of identity, the transitory sensation of inhabiting a body, and the impressions it holds.

 

Jane Wilkinson has a lifelong passion for the natural world, and after a career in Sustainability wants to share this passion through art, in particular illustration.  Hearing a marine biologist talk about her research on Seashells prompted Jane to rediscover her late mother’s 1950s tropical shell collection from the Island of Pemba.  The sheer range of shapes and patterns of this extensive collection inspired Jane to try and capture their beauty and contextualise it with mementoes of her parents’ island life, using mixed media including screen-printing.

 

Nuray Yigiter is a landscape designer and yoga therapist born in a small Turkish village.  From childhood she has been inspired by the harmony between the shapes, colours and textures of nature. Her works reflects memories of her childhood, both place and stories. She concentrates on colour and form and her pictures are bold and bursting with energy whilst retaining an overall delicate effect. She works in mixed media, collage, oils and acrylic.
