Dr Karen Heald, Reader in Interdisciplinary Art Practice and the university’s Programme Leader for the MA Art & Design Suite, Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology, said: “We’re enormously proud of our final year Masters students and their efforts in what they’ve produced for this fantastic exhibition.
“Saturation is the title and key theme of the exhibition, and that’s because saturation can be found in the students’ art, applied art and design works, ranging from tonal qualities of black and white to hues and full saturation of colours. Their work reveals the research process which embraces complex, multi-faceted ideas and materials, that the students have been engaging with.
“It’s a truly special showcase of various traditional, cross and interdisciplinary art and design forms and styles, which address contemporary issues.
“Please come along to celebrate the fantastic work achieved by our students through their hard work, motivation and dedication. What they’ve produced is creative, skilful and thought-provoking, we would love for you to come and see it for yourselves.”
