Middlesex University MA exhibition ‘Present Continuous’ opens at the Hendon campus on Thursday 7 September.
Artists in this show are:
- Wallis Asher
- Julien Ipanga
- Bibi Masooma
- Carolyn Murphy
- Melisa Novotna
- Iliana Ortega-Alcázar
- Jostna Reddy
- Abhishek Shakya
This exhibition allows artists to show their work in larger spaces and explore new opportunities for display, as part of their postgraduate studies in MA Fine Art / MA Fine Art Printmaking.
Carolyn Murphy showed 3 works:
‘A World We Share?’ is an etching with a repeat pattern. It is embossed to create texture and embellished by hand, with watercolour and Indian ink. Over 7 square metres in size, it floats across three walls.
‘No Stone Unturned’ is an installation made of hand-printed, 3D folded structures suggesting stone and lichens. In six designs, this growing collection uses no glue and will morph and balance, presented in tall precarious towers in this exhibition.
‘Winter Hill’ is a series of one-off prints, creating a disrupted panoramic landscape. It combines oil-based inks and watercolour monotype techniques with added collage, chine collée and burnt sections.
The exhibition runs from 7 to 13 September 2023 in the Grove Building.
