For this exhibition I wanted to enhance the reality that the most well know painting in the world (the mona Lisa) is 77 x 53 cm. The size of the paint isn’t very large,but if you were to look at the mona Lisa at the louvre it is very hard to have a good look at it, since thete is a line you have to stand behind and the large crowd. So you can only get a small glimpse at itmi wanted to give that experience to people by creating the paintings at the mesuerment of inch x inch.
This was an exhibition with art works that were produced by second year student at Bath Spa School of art and design. This was held at the Walcot Chapel, Bath. The theme for this exhibition was to reproduce the most well know painting (mona Lisa) with there own interpretation. Each student produced there own opinion on the painting of the mona Lisa. This exhibition was supported by the uni. Students had 3 weeks to produce there works and display them at the Walcot. It was a great private view, celebrating people’s work. The private view was held on the 6/2/18 at 6-8pm. Exhibition closed on the 10/2/18 at 4pm.
Behind the scenes
Here are some of the photos of the night.
My name is Zachary William Hunter Young and I am a second year student at Bath Spa of School of Art and Design, Fine Art. I have an interest in curating exhibition in my free time. This is a blog to discuss my work and a timeline of thing I am interested in.
This was a good experience for me, how to set up my sculpture in a exhibition environment. I noticed by controlling the lighting at the exhibition I can enhance the shine on the metal.
This was a group exhibition that was held by Second year students. Works that were displayed was a celebration of our first term.
I booked out the venue at Ben Hughes gallery for a one day exhibition. I contacted students that would be interested in exhibiting there works. They then shared ideas and projects that would be shown at the exhibition. At this point I was shown measurements for the art pieces, I used the floor plan of the space to direct where works would be displayed. A second year graphic design student designed the poster for this exhibition. I contacted the uni for support for refreshments and travel and they provided on the day.
On the morning of the 9th the van arrived at the uni at 10:30. Works were then loaded in the van and traveled to the gallery. At 12am we organised spaces for the pieces of work. This was debated for around 2 hours. We finished setting up at 3, then book food and drinks.
The exhibition was a very good success, the turn out was great. It was nice to see that everyone enjoyed themselves. I was surprised how well it turned out and very exited for my next exhibition.

My inspiration for this piece was life drawing. I decided this term to look into life drawing and examining ways of interpreting the human body. I stared by following my line drawing with a 6mm metal pole, this gave an abstract line of the human body. This was achieved in three parts and solder the finished pieces. Currently attached to string overhead a beam. By having it hang it spins by the person, myself who turns on the piece. This would then achieve a motion sculpture, almost dancing.
