These are large scale Cyanotypes by Foundation Art and Design student Giulia Ausenda Stanford.
They are initial experimental pieces for part of her Final Major Project where she is exploring the human form through multi-media approaches.
A cyanotype is one of the oldest forms of photography, used in the late 18th century to record flora and fauna.
We will be presenting a curated show featuring work by this years Foundation Students at the new Fish Factory Arts space in Penryn.
It is a chance to showcase the course and the students and exhibit selected work in a carefully curated way within a professional gallery context in the heart of the creative community of Penryn/Falmouth.
The selection of work was undertaken by Foundation staff with assistance from Rose Hatcher who runs the Fish Factory Arts Space and aims to showcase the quality and variety of work being produced on the course whilst still presenting a coherent and professional exhibition.
The work is a selection from the course across all pathways and highlights some of the most creative, varied and imaginative approaches from learners from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
