Folded Plinths Exhibition: Drawings and Sculptures by Sixth Form Students

On Thursday 18 January, Lower and Upper Sixth Form students showcased some of their recent work at an exhibition at the Gerald Moore Gallery.

Lower and Upper Sixth Form students have been working with the Artist in Residence, Stephanie Farmer on a drawing project. The exhibition entitled: ‘Folded Plinths’, is a selection of their drawings and sculptures. Students made a new drawing and then experimented with the folding reproductions of their drawings to create sculptures.

Upper Sixth Form students have chosen a subject matter connected with their A-Level coursework and work made during this project has been used for interview portfolios as well as coursework entries.

Stephanie Farmer’s recent work involves scaling up drawings and folding the paper to form three-dimensional reliefs. She has been involved with various workshops at the Gerald Moore Gallery since 2011 responding to history paintings, Kenneth Martin and Matisse. She has exhibited throughout the UK with her work focusing on paper, sculpture and scale. She is also graduate of Fine Art from the University of Oxford and holds an MA in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art.
