In conversation with: Susannah Douglas

By | Fine Art

‘We all have an image of ourselves posed in school uniform, eating an ice cream at a birthday party, lined up for a family portrait. If not we recognise the form. These photographs provide the evidence for the construction of our personal narratives. The desire for unique moments, the significant point in the story, is a powerful desire.’

A few months ago we blogged about the [(6)] – six alumni photography students who have come together again to create a new body of work. This work shot in Oxford, England and exhibited in Oxford, Canada. To add further interest to an already exciting event the Oxford Riverside Gallery was set up by one of OCA’s MA students Mathew Aldred.

Last week I attended an illustrated talk by musician, illustrator and street artist Kid Acne. This event was part of the Off the Shelf festival in Sheffield and Kid Acne, real name Ed, designed the logo for this year’s festival. We got a snapshot of the last 20 years culmination of work which led to this design.

In conversation: Bethan Hamilton

By | artist interview, Fine Art, We Are OCA

“I would say self portraits grant you a lot more freedom than portraits do. When drawing friends I worry about causing offence by focusing on their ‘imperfections’. But it’s those imperfections that make a person who they are. When drawing myself I don’t think twice about depicting every dark shadow, every wrinkle, misplaced hair or roll of fat.”
