Upper Sixth artists visit Roche Court

Upper Sixth artists started their new unit of A-level work with a visit to Psychotropics, a new exhibition of paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages at The New Arts Centre at Roche Court in Wiltshire. The New Art Centre specialises in modern and contemporary sculpture and hosts a dynamic programme of exhibitions in a sixty-acre sculpture park and in gallery spaces The Artists House and The Design House.

Psychotropics explores how our physical experience of the world is being replaced by an optical one. Students Becky, Kathy, Rosie and Tanika discussed how sculptor Alice Channer’s piece ‘Synthetic Fibres, 201’, in which she uses materials ranging from metal and concrete to textiles and paper, explores our relationship to objects.

The outcomes of the students’ visit and workshops will be on display next term in the summer exhibition.
