BA (Hons) Fine Art
For the last two years of my studies, I’ve begun to heavily look into the ideas and theories surrounding western masculinity and the British working class. Throughout the course, and even at the end of it, I find myself constantly in an almost eureka-like state, where my work has become more concerned and centred around the themes of masculinity and social class.
Through choice readings, my own personal experiences, my writing, my practice, and my research report, I have begun questioning my own identity, my upbringing, and my background, in order to better understand the meaning of class identity, how one’s class is defined, and more so mine, in addition to masculinity, and my own masculinity, and how I can go about questioning and defining it.
Embroidery and analogue photography were the main mediums that I utilised this academic year, and I pushed both mediums to document and understand more personal thoughts I have on my masculinity and social class.
