Uni of Kent Fine Art students first to exhibit in Chatham Dockyard
A new exhibition, featuring work by graduating fine art students at the University of Kent, is the first to go on show in the Historic Dockyard.
Family and friends of the artists enjoyed live music from Art Studio whilst appreciating the eclectic combination of visual and textured artworks. It's the first time this unique course has been presented in this way, in places "as far flung from Gothenburg to Gillingham" - according to actor Paul Ritter, who was both delighted and honoured to welcome everyone to the new home of the Fine Art Degree Show.
The showcase of exciting artworks by BA (Hons) Fine Art students brings together a culmination of artistic solutions to philosophical debates. Whilst it is their final year in university studios, the debates brought to issue are merely the beginnings of creative explorations. Through installation, film, sculpture, painting and drawings, they exhibit contemporary arguments and re-examine older ones, which narrate 21st century culture.
One of the students in the exhibition is contemporary artist Matt Bray, from Rochester, who advised that the exhibition will continue in The Galvanising Shop until June 2nd, and will also be on show for the Fuse Festival. Matt will be committing to a four year PHD now and will also exhibit his work in a show called 'Fragmented' at Whitstable's Horsebridge Centre in October, whereafter it will be for sale. Matt used painting and drawing to explore the concepts of self, a deeply personal journey albeit one in which any audience can engage. See his work alongside his some of his fellow artists in the gallery here.
