Cath Keay – 1000 Tides

Cath will be running a casting project with our first year students early next month. keep an eye on the blog and our Flickr site for images from the project.

Cath Keay’s doctoral project builds on her previous, long-running work on bees and wax sculpture to investigate ways in which art and the natural world can interact, exploring dynamic natural processes that can influence the final form of a sculpture. Keay’s sculptural works provide a basis for animal colonisation in natural environments (a wax architectural sculpture in a beehive; terracotta text sculptures in the sea); over time it is possible to investigate the way in which these animal forms adapt to and alter the artworks, creating beauty in nature’s response to human intervention. Her work highlights the role of nature as collaborator in the creation of the artistic product.

Mark Melvin

What can be seen in Mark’s work throughout is a preoccupation with the work as process, and in turn looping, sequence and rhythmic iteration have been prominent in their construction. Repetition is evident in his practice and he often experiments with various cycles and levels of repetition, be it a discussion of the habitual and routine, investigations into recollection and memory or the use of music, the art of iteration.
