With a vaired selection comprising of drawings, paintings, photography, sculpture & video. It certainly provides an insight into the next generations appetite for expression. See those to watch out for at the very beginning of their careers. 

 

Adam Britnell : Towering Structure, 2014

 

A Level Student Adam Britnell has been successful in having 2 of his works selected for feature in the final 36 on display from the original 1,280 submitted. This remarkable achievement leads Passion Palete to believe that this artist is certainly one to look out for in our Fast Forward section in years to come.

 

<< This work is inspired by architect Lakov Chernikhov whose architectual designs, referred to as Constructivist architecture, flourished during the early Soviet Union years. Adam uses similar qualities of multiplied shapes & lines to produce structural form. He also takes inspiration from a newly erected block of apartments, which stands opposite the Tate Modern.

<< Daniel Banks : Contruction Two, 2014

Daniel explores his ability to rely on materials found locally to form a sculpture with a connection to the area.

 

Inspired by Sculptor Janet Nathan, a pioneer in the use of reclaimed materials, the artist follows in her footsteps with the sourcing of materials being an integral part of his creative process.

Tarique Al-Shabazz : Consumed by Technology, 2014

 

A piece that expresses the artist's view on the current attitudes towards the society we live in. The affect of advancing technology on the way we communicate has been well documented in the art world & has been granted it's very first major exhibition with the Barbican's Digital Revolution. Artists such as Nick Gentry & Danielle Hodson have sought to raise awareness of the changing nature of the technologically driven amongst us. The latter bares great resemblance to the work of Tarique Al-Shabazz whose inclusion of modern technologies provide an instant contemporary touch to the underlining messages of connection through disconnectivity. It also provides the opportunity to include direct messages through the ability to include text in the work such as in this piece.

Nathalie Soo : Majestic Landscape / Dvorets (Palace)

Nathalie Soo is another artist successful in getting 2 of her works featured in the final shortlist. She removes herself from more traditional treatments of the landscape to be led by vibrant colours, which are applied to the canvas in an expressionistic manner. She also achieves a sense of controlled chaos in the work below, which is said to have been inspired by the works of mixed media artist Julie Mehretu.

'Passion Palette brings you a glimpse at the next generation of artists coming through'....

This Fast Forward edition features the A Level Summer exhibition hosted by the Royal Academy. We bring you the top 3 art works selected from an astounding 2,400 works submitted. Each piece has been selected by an expert panel comprising of Royal Academicans including Wolfgang Tillmans

 

<< Saman Khan : Mother's Nature's Natural Chaos, 2017


This piece was designed with the thought of nature evolving towards the extent where it overtook humanity when it was at its weakest. This is the time period where we have yet to experience, towards the future decades from now. During this time period, humans have used up all their resources and have become so dependent on technology for their every need in life that they don’t know how to adapt towards their new environment. In a way you can say this is Mother Nature taking back what was once hers – the natural chaos in a beautiful, serene way blending in with humanity’s past. This piece was made by the use of the laser cutter machine.

Laser cut wood & card, acrylic paint, wire, felted wool. 40 x 70 x 40cm.

<< Louisa Karayiannis : Bathroom, 2017

The comfortable environment of the bathroom: a place where one is completely alone with one’s thoughts, without the expectations of others influencing them, one is completely unmasked. I began to delve deeper into exploring what made a comfortable environment: colour, warmth, familiarity? I then wanted to completely deconstruct this, and transform a place of comfort into a place of disturbance and unsettledness, exploring the effect of colours and shapes, and finally creating my uncomfortable bathroom. The bathroom has the option for two different light settings, which evoke different unsettling moods within the experiencer.   

A room, bath tub, plastic sheets, paper. 600 x 500cm.

<< Oran Cooch : In the Loop, 2017

 

The interdisciplinary nature of art gives me the freedom to express my concerns about the world in a tangible form. In the Loop inspired by Nam June Paik, highlights how EU countries dump recycled electronic goods in West Africa. Consisting of discarded TVs, the installation displays a fractured image of a boy on an e-waste dump. The screens – distorted using magnets – mirror the toxic chemicals released from burning electronics. A pen-drawn background, projected onto staggered and suspended screen-printed canvases, creates a dystopian backdrop. Cables litter the middle ground, bridging the gap between reality and the fictitious drawing.

 

Found objects, magnets, projection, canvases, pen drawing, screen-printing, time-based media. 250 x 300 x 300cm
