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.

RUTH WRIGHT PALMER and STEPH KIRKMAN
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.

Rachel explored a wide variety of themes throughout her AS Coursework in response to the title 'Environment'. These particular final pieces examine identity, environment and a sense of atmosphere and place and were made by projecting images from home onto the body.
