THIS IS ALL I HAD is a joint exhibition that brings together third year fine art students and assistant curators, Kerry Tenbey and Beth Wise.

The exhibition will showcase a variety of new visual artworks, developed during the summer break. Through repetitive experimentation of materials and material process, both artists create work which focuses on specific shapes, textures, colours and consideration to tactility to achieve visual representations of individual experience.

THIS IS ALL I HAD acts as a visual pause for each artists’ individual development as they continue into their final year of study.

 

KERRY TENBEY

My work continues to explore and reflect upon individual experience. Trying to find meaning and understanding of societal constructs, such as gender, sexuality and identity. Intimacy and affection play an important role in comprehending these ideas.

As a result of all these musings, I create poetic compositions of objects that feel intimate, personal and relatable.

This new work relies on an amount of repetitiveness. Reusing and recycling cut outs and waste moulds to create the next work, shapes within shapes and finding new works from those internal spaces.

 

BETH WISE

My work explores the differences between soft and gentle materials like wool, and the more solid and industrial sculpting properties of concrete. I often deal with the process of balancing heavy pieces onto thin structures, trying to find a shape that works. I intertwine and combine these things to create mini explorations that push the boundaries of fragile sculpture.

Throughout my degree I have found inspiration and meaning in concrete poetry. My work acts as an attempt to visually represent language through shape, line and material.

 

Both artists have recently been selected by UKYA (UK Young Artists) to present work at Nottingham City Takeover 2019.
