The students are enrolled in the Diploma in Fine Art, or as part of a Program of Selected Study. Photography is one of a range fine art subjects the students are studying as part of their course.
This is a ‘pop–up’ and in some cases ‘pin-up’ show, put together somewhat spontaneously. We saw a gap in the exhibition program and decided to put together some work and work-in-progress gathered from the recent mid-year assessments.
The show is open on weekdays from 9am-4pm until next Thursday July 26.
A vital part of the process of developing artwork is to take the opportunity to look at the work you are making, and reflect, evaluate, and gather feedback, and plan how the work can be improved or refined. This exhibition gives the selected artists an opportunity to do just that.
The represented classes will use the exhibition as a learning tool in numerous ways including creating a platform for discussion and ideas generation.
Studies in fine art photography gives the student an opportunity to not only develop technical skills in the medium of photography, but also to develop and refine a personal aesthetic or visual style. Projects are developed over numerous weeks, and students are mentored in the production of a body of work, a process that includes research, capture, editing, re-capture (if required) and printing.
The generation of photographic images has never been more prolific than it is now in the digital age. The study of art photography ensures that an image moves beyond capture into a well-considered print that has been refined, finessed and presented to create an art object suitable for exhibition. This pop-up show is a valuable tool to assist the artists on that journey.
