FEUVA STUDENT AWARD 2018

FEUVA Student Prize Sculpture 2018 awarded to Alice Dudgeon for her piece ‘Avodah’. Alice describes it as a large-scale structure made entirely of pine. Based on initial, intuitive diagrams developed from research into Neolithic agriculture, the narrow verticals were turned on a lathe by hand, communicating directly the importance of repeated, meditative acts of physical labour. Skills and materials are worked into pure, simplified constructions that reflect the experience of making and worship as craftsmanship. Verticals guide the eye up and draw the audience in, whilst horizontal arcs draw the visitor closer, surrounding them in silent formations of lines. The audience is encouraged to pause before being released back out into the room.

SANDY MOFFAT TALK

A very special night with Sandy Moffat in the boardroom at Evolution House. Sandy embellished his talk with a series of images that charted his career and gave us a glimpse into why he is one of Scotland’s greatest living artists.
