Welcome to our First International ARThailand Resident of 2022!

Next week, we are delighted to be welcoming our first International ARThailand resident of 2022, conceptual artist and sculptor Ross Finch. Influenced by the philosophy of ‘routes to roots’ and the creation of work from sustainable materials, Ross creates work that connects materials to their environment and pays particular attention to the role that local craft producers play in shaping the art that is associated with any given cultural identity.
 
Examining means of production, politics of knowledge and the relationship of ‘government’ to the individual, his works are derived from combining innovative craft experimentation, challenging engineered construction methods and the accidental pairing of materials.
 
Ross will be undertaking a two-week ‘research & development’ residency, working with materials that occur naturally in and around the Prem Campus, exploring the link between, art-making, natural materials and well-being He will work directly with our DP Visual Art students, as well as offering drop-in workshops to Junior School, Middle School students as well as community members, looking at how traditions in carpentry and woodwork can be applied to natural materials to create ‘sustainable’, sculptural forms.
