On a very busy Saturday in Cambridge five students and I visited several locations to see work in a variety of contexts.
Our practical session was centred on ideas generation and how to generate multiple visual experiments from a single starting point. Taking a crumpled piece of A4 paper as our subject, we first drew its form, then experimented with scale and composition.
This study visit brought together three very different gallery spaces, each with their own structure and agenda and a variety of work from emerging and established artists. There is value in exploring the many ways that artwork is seen, we can become more aware of the journeys that artists take and the way a practice can develop through public presentation of work.

OCA’s MA Fine Art is now in its fourth year and it is pleasing and exciting to see students exhibiting their work regularly. Jilliene Sellner is currently at the end of her first year of study.
