Studying: BA (Hons) Cut ‘n’ Paste & BA (Hons) Film

I am an artist who among other things likes to buy old books from charity shops for as cheap as possible and then cut them up to make collages. Cutting things out while listening to Radcliffe and Maconie on Radio 6 of an afternoon is as optimum as it gets for me. I have  a pasting table on which all my bits and pieces are scattered and I move them about till I like em. No great mystery. Having a messy and chaotic workspace is essential.  I’ve found that most of the things that work are totally accidental so I don’t try too hard. Or take it too seriously. Gluestick, scissors, + pen = heaven.

Studying: BA (Hons) Avant Garde & BA (Hons) Cut ‘n’ Paste

Artist and painter for about 20 years now, I enjoy most of all a huge canvas in a messy studio that I can attack with oil paint and a shear abstract expressionist overdose of emotion and energy. However, I also enjoy forays into methods more Zen, figurative and contemporary. I am actually working on distancing myself from the canvas at this moment in time and including more thoughtful ideas into my work. This is difficult though as I am fairly addicted, after 20 years hard use, to 2-D self-expression.

When artist is an authentic witness and confessor of faith, the art becomes passage to the invisible world. In “Reverse Perspective”, artist reviles existence of something beyond the obvious fact of miracle, found in “everyday” – the discovery of God’s presence, developing the endless possibilities of “practicing imagination”, and focusing direction towards achieving the highest goal: redemption, Revelation and Salvation. We can feel at first hand the presence of the Holy Spirit, of Its Uncreated Energy. It all has one goal – the change of the entire visible world Its complete, essential transfiguration. At some times, we simply do not know if we are on earth or in heaven. We feel, with our entire being, that God is with us at that time. Truly with us. Those moments of stepping into eternity, I have named “eterniments.”

I’m a hoarder and collector, gleaning small pieces of incidental knowledge from books, street posters, overheard conversations and of course, libraries. I work in a number of mediums, using printmaking, poetry and photography to create collages, artist books and films. For the past two years I have been making small daily collages as a way of disseminating the knowledge I’ve gained incidentally, stitching onto paper, ripping paper into pieces and reassembling these pieces into new variations on inevitably old themes.

Ann-Marie is one half of the husband and wife collaboration CorieltauviArt. She has migrated towards art from the world of scientific research,where she spent time(measurable in years)looking for incredibly small minerals in a variety of different coloured slates(mostly in darkened rooms using large,noisy machines). Ann-Marie has subsequently found refuge in experimenting with various aspects of the creative arts including fine art,printmaking,painting,photography and poetry. Ann-Marie has a particular interest in documenting and translating various aspects of her everyday life experiences into words and pictures:particularly those visual,aural and even imaginary moments which evoke a strong,positive or negative emotional response.

Studying: MPhil Mistakes

My work explores the relationship between the tyranny of ageing and skateboard ethics. With influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and Mahatma Gandhi, new combinations are generated from both simple and complex meanings. Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the human condition. What starts out as triumph soon becomes debased into a tragedy of temptation, leaving only a sense of decadence and the chance of a new synthesis.As spatial forms become frozen through emergent and diverse practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the inaccuracies of our condition.

I spend my time shambling blindly through the world of contemporary art, on a quest to become a Victorian Polymath. Grasping wildly at fleeting ideas in the hope that one of them might just form into a tangible and meaningful piece of work. But more often than not ending up with a collection of swear words or drawings of dinosaurs. I’ve just finished an OU module in art history and currently I’m making surreal pop arty collages by day and making incongruous, pretentious conversation with infuriating hipsters as I work as a bouncer by night. Next Sunday I will be leaving the country on a ten week exploration of the USA, as the residencies I applied for on graduating didn’t want me. Hopefully I will return home inspired and effervescing with ideas, but I expect I will just come back obese.

I like a city wander, snapping things and finding stuff.  I’m a maker; mainly wine, unusual knitted goods and questionable music that relies more on interesting ideas than technical skill.  I’m a very curious person and have a tendency to be quite impulsive, I’m easy to lead astray and I do go astray quite regularly (I’m an ENFP if that means anything to you). I have one of those brains that deals well with abstract concepts and I find connections in everything. I don’t have one of those brains which are good at memorising things or reading maps. I get lost a lot. Luckily I like getting lost.

Having spent four years in an art school I now have found my calling. On my way to become an illustration artist, I am once again, after a very long time, feeling the rush of blood in my veins, those energetic butterflies in my stomach, that passion that makes one fall in love with life and makes it all worth it. And that is when I look at art. Self-trained to this day, I am also a book lover and a wide reader, and write short stories as a hobby. To travel is a passion, and it has become sort of an ambition to one day go on my own road trip around the world with great rock classics played for tunes.

After graduating from LCA it has been a struggle to find a niche or a use for my degree in fine art or mental space to execute any creative ideas. I am working towards early retirement in the next 2 years. In the meantime I am eager to keep my creative thought processes alive by any means as well as finding new sources of inspiration. My daily working life sustains my mortal needs and finances but days working through beurocracy and shuffling paper drain any creativity from my mind. Perhaps i could embark on a new project called the Paper chain. Anyway I digress. Basically what you are offering sounds like good fun and boy do I need some of that!! My heros include Kurt Schwitters and Marielle Neudecker, Painters Gerhart Richter and Judith Tucker. So quite varied but I am easily seduced by pleasing images.

Studying: MPhil Mistakes

Amelia Beavis-Harrison is a freelance curator and artist she initiated and runs Lincoln Art Programme, a live art commissioning body in Lincoln. Her curatorial practice looks to investigate curating in public environments predominantly with live art. She is interested in the relationships that art work can have within site contexts in a wide environment that may have a direct / organic / conflicting relationship. A strand of her practice looks to explore what curating can be and the function of the curator. Amelia makes art work that is informed by situations, occurrences, conversations and the production of art. Using snippets of information gathered from common sources such as newspapers and the internet, concepts are formed. Research into both the unusual and the trivial create starting points for investigation, which often leads to action and text based work. Through gestures, visualisations and the blatantly obvious she captures ideas are re-sells them as art. Influences from the every day and the under exposed inform the works outcomes. Further to this Amelia has an interest in failure and how it is manifested in both art work and society. Her work often unintentionally explores failure creating by-products that are representative of the situation.

  1. Is distance learning an option please?
    I’ve managed to be a fairly successful ‘remote Twit’volunteer at the Edinburgh Festival without departing from my living room

  2. I am pursuing a doctorate in failure, a refinement which it has taken me over 30 years to acquire, starting with the language degree I did in Leeds last century. I live a long way away from you and am too poor to afford the train fair to enrol. I could teach others how to fail really well; please don’t pretend to be interested in this ability as it would confuse a life time of failure.
    please send an enrolment form though

  3. Hi, as a passive learner in no true subject, would I be able to just ‘pop’ in and out occasionally and borrow people’s notes?

    • Hi Len, We will be publishing students’ work for the benefit of everyone, but we strongly advise you to enroll on at least one course and consider devising your individual learning plan to incorporate your needs. You could include extra curricula modules to your learning programme also.
