Three Things; Flashback Friday – Kris’ Arts Foundation

Flashback to Kris' Arts Foundation final show

Flashback Friday today goes back to the summer of 2005 and Kris Heath’s final show for his Arts Foundation course at Newcastle College. Kris specialised in sculpture and produced a piece entitled ‘Fluid’.

The piece, inspired by waveforms and gradients, was mounted in a window. This led to some wonderful light and shadow being cast as light filtered through the hanging threads.

Each square element was weighted and painted with an incrementally different shade of blue ranging from the dark to light.

The final piece was considered very successful and was featured on the cover of the prospectus the following September.
