Punctuated³ features the work of thirteen artists who use diverse media and subject matter. The gallery has been divided into thirteen different sized sections. These have been randomly allocated to each of the participating artists, who have then created new work especially for the dimensions of that space. Each area is a third of the size of the one before it; resulting in artworks that vary in size from over two metres to just under two centimetres. The size of the allocated section is the only parameter given for content, and provides the title for each work.
All of the artists are currently students on MA Fine Art at The University of Lincoln. The premise for the exhibition grew out of a conversation between staff and students about issues of hierarchies within curation and society at large. The format suggests a sense of generosity towards the artists who are encouraged to create work guided by their own interests, whilst paradoxically working within the tight structure of size constraints.
MA Fine Art at The University of Lincoln is a studio-based course that is aimed at those who wish to develop the critical, research, practical and professional aspects of their art practice at the highest level. This interdisciplinary programme encourages creative risk-taking and intellectual inquiry.
