Esmee Purvis Photography AS

Esmee has produced work on a variety of themes this term for her 'Environment' project. These fantastic graphic architectural studies were made on a recent trip to London and mark a new direction for her work. They are especially pleasing as Esmee only started Photography in September. Well done!

Anna travelled to South Africa during the summer and spent two weeks on a wildlife reserve. As well as going on poaching patrol, spotlighting and latrine surveying she found the time to make some fantastic work, here are a few examples.

After our visit to the Matisse 'Cut-outs' exhibition at Tate Modern, the Art department spent the day experimenting with some of the techniques and ideas that  they had seen. The Remove, Inters and LTs worked with print, cut out paper and cyanotypes (some of which can be seen below) to produce a range of lovely work as a response to the experience.

Important Goodbyes !


To mark Ruth's leaving school after a fantastically successful A2 year we are showing more of her Rothko and Twombly inspired acrylic pieces. Ruth developed the motif of the box and drips, and includes the text studied for her Drama A level in the paintings


Steph examined themes of urban space, crowds, context and identity in both still and moving imagery during her A2 year. By experimenting with layering in her photography and altering time/speed in her filmmaking she manipulated the viewer's perception of busy spaces and the way we move through them.

Both girls have been fantastic students, a very positive presence in the Art block and a great example to the younger girls. We all wish them the very best of luck in the future !
