Claire Ringrose at Oxford Brookes University.
I sadly only had time to visit the first week of two fine art showcases at Free Range this year, but even a brief whirl around the exhibitions was enough to discover these gems, which were first shared on my instagram feed:
This crystallised installation makes me think of a secret witch’s chamber, by Emma Norton at Leeds University.
At Loughborough University Olexandra Solomka‘s embroidery accompanies a fictitious website, ukranianwomen.net.
At Coventry University Guilia Nucci‘s complex installation featured these brilliant ceramic mice watching TV.
This giant leather floral spider by Kerry Short was displayed at waist height on its very own podium.
At University of Northampton there was more crystallised art in the form of these carefully placed pebbles by Miranda Marshall.
This punk wall collage was put together by William Burr, and it expanded well beyond the boundaries of my photograph.
One of my highlights was these absolutely delightful miniature paintings with tiny collaged birds and animals by Heather Armitage.
At the Oxford Brookes University Lightbox show I loved these wonderful talismans made from natural objects by Claire Ringrose. Her Fluvium Artifacts are inspired by ancient settlements and forgotten memories.
These beguiling toothpick balls sculpture were by Viviane Fallah.
Fellow student Mita Vaghela chose to create her organic sculpture out of plastic spoons.
