Wonderful work by First year Art History students inspired by women and non-binary artists.

Some students take inspiration directly from a single artist. Others use the work of many artists as a springboard for creation. Students respond to the works through image and text.

The pre-planning sketch by Laura Field for her Gentileschi Theatre (above) gives a hint of the work. Dani Robertson describes being influenced by Frida Kahlo and our collective mothers:

‘A lot of Frida Kahlo’s artwork shows the connection between human and nature. Especially in her piece ‘The Love Embrace of the Universe’. It made me think about ‘mother nature’, then motherhood and then how we are connected with our mothers in many ways. Physically by birth, raising us, breastfeeding, protecting us. Spiritually by teaching us life lessons, shaping our personality, teaching us how to grow into a woman or even receiving a gut instinct when we are upset or in danger.’ 

We hope you can come to see this inspirational show. We will post further details nearer the time.

We are grateful for MA Curating, who have provided curatorial support for the exhibition.
