Fragmented Portraits

Year 9 have been studying Cubism. They initially created “Dadaesque” Celebrity Collages. These were developed into preliminary watercolour paintings and drawings. After looking at the work of Naum Gabo, the students will work on a sculpture project consolidating their ideas and learning culminating in a final finished piece.

Field  is a series of installations made in collaboration with communities from across the globe. This Field is the American version, made in 1990 with the Texca family of brick-makers in San Matias, Cholula, Mexico. Thirty-five thousand figures were made by about sixty men, women and children aged from six to over sixty, mostly members of the extended family.
