Mhairi’s was probably my favourite exhibition of the entire degree show, especially her thread and glue pieces. Stunningly intricate, simultaneously light and heavy, they defy perception and leave you wondering how endless Mhairi’s patience must be.
Sahar’s suspended thread piece was beautifully tense. I almost want to give it more space to breathe, to walk around it and see it from every single angle.
Jonny’s work is achingly witty, somewhat dangerous, stunningly photographed and quite frankly mad. His are the kind of set ups that I wish I had thought up or even witnessed.
I find it quite hard to realise that all of Fiona’s pieces are, in fact, screenprints. I’ve worked around Fiona whilst I’ve been night teching this year and witnessed her jubilation and frustration in the creation of her circular pieces. But I never had the chance to see a finished one until the show. If anyone has the nerve to say that screenprinting is easy or a less skilled printmaking technique, I dare them to say it to Fiona. I think they are beautiful.
