Graduate Residency

National Media Museum, Harry Gammer-Flitcroft  National Media Museum | Harry Gammer-Flitcroft

The 2015 recipient of the Jane Phillips Award Graduate Residency is Harry Gammer-Flitcroft, a Photography Graduate from Swansea College of Art, UWTSD.

Harry’s work explores the mechanics of systems that are often overlooked in favour of their result. Recent topics have ranged from dissecting the photographic industry, to looking at the physical sights of the sub-marine communication cables, as well as looking at the banal processes of dealing with death.

This residency will culminate in a Mission Gallery Offsite exhibition at the National Waterfront Museum from 06 February – 13 March 2016.

Hannah Wells recently graduated from Swansea Metroplitan’s BA (Hons) Surface Pattern Design course.

As a conceptual applied artist and maker my practice conveys a recurring theme of collective obsessiveness. Juxtaposition, absence and presence are all key terms which constantly questioned within my work through a language of materials.

Passionate on the theme of drawing, I use this as a fundamental tool to explore, discuss and translate such objects using a variety of mediums. Primarily, I focus on introducing line and mark making with the use of observational drawing. This enables me to highlight concerns of shape, silhouette and shadow within my sketches. I am additionally excited by surface and texture.

Not only interested in the objects, my work challenges the boundary of each individual form as personal development pushes to change the context of its original function. This forms a change, a transformation, something new and something inquisitive for the viewer to enquire upon.

Additionally, I have an enthusiasm for making and exploring new methods and techniques. Working predominately in mix media, on a small scale, using a collection of remnants and fragments I will reproduce by means of joining, binding and grouping.
