Wilby Primary School

The work involved looking afresh at all kinds of details and making an archive of photographs. This was influenced by the experience of looking at objects from the Sainsbury Centre, which affected the way the children saw pattern, relief, colour, ritual.  These collected responses then became the starting point for a series of images transformed into dioramas and selected and manipulated into a whole series of pattern-like details.  Patterns were also transposed directly from the soil and enhanced and developed into relief slabs robust enough to become part of the school’s creative garden.

 

This began with a project to discover the extraordinary quirkiness and beauty of the farm, which we normally either take for granted or don’t even notice.  This was then refined to look specifically at pattern and texture, taking photography and light projections as the inspiration for strongly physical art making.
