Third year painting presents "Visioning Alternatives" an irregular look at the state of us. This show acts as a testing facility for these third year students in creating a cultural experience for an audience outside of the college and open to the public.
The exhibition examines culture and society in a broad spectrum of contemporary art practices. Knitting together similar yet individually unique and personal perspectives which have been translated, developed and abstracted into visual communications.
The show features work ranging from reactive views of 1916, The then and now, to challenging contemporary imagery, aesthetic media and material examinations. With such a broad contemporary art spectrum its easy to see the work being driven by the need to question and test out the socially accepted norms of the world around us and attempting to push the possibilities of material concerns in evoking a state of experience.
Regardless of what the artists intend we individually take from an art work wildly different impressions and experiences based on our own developed perspectives and the lives we lived. That there in is the state of us so far.
