Falmouth Collective// 22052016

A weekly blogpost celebrating the work of current  Falmouth University students. Since starting this feature on my blog I'm delighted to announce I've been contacted by the University website team to help create a feature like this for the Falmouth website to show prospectus students the kind of work that is created by students at the Uni. 

Rosie Fossett

I chose to share this piece by Rosie (from one of her recent projects) because of how she has combined textures. I love the background as it adds an existing structure to the narrative and she has worked into using a variety of shapes which adds to a lively and exciting piece. I am inspired by a lot of illustrators at the moment and over the summer I'm going to work on small projects where I explore how narrative can be shown.

I first saw Sophie's work on Instagram where she had started a very successful project on mental health and how this can be visualised. Her current work has struck and interest because of how she is using shapes and printmaking to create illustrations. The beauty of printmaking is the variety of textures that can be created. It's all down to experimentation which is all part of the process.

Molly was on the foundation with me last year and her recent project on packaging has been so successful because of the concept behind the work. The beauty of this work is all about the process and showing the consumer the materials that have been used to make the product. This has really interested me because of how materials can be used within art is an important factor in my own work. Looking at graphic design where communication is key is something I should consider because sometimes I think the concept in my work is lost.

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
