"My work is about materiality. It deals with how materials make you feel." Taylor Davies-King
“My work is about materiality. It deals with how materials make you feel.
I created a sculpture that creates a change and makes people think about material a little more than they would normally, which is why I chose to use everyday materials.
My three years at AUB have been really interesting. The first year wasn’t what I thought it was going to be and it changed my practice quite a bit.
I started to focus more on installations, which can be more engaging than flat work.
Now I’m looking for residencies and work in the creative sector. I’m just trying to get my hands on anything and everything. I just want to be an artist.”

"My work is based on Doug the Pug, who is a massively famous dog on social media." Louise White
Doug the Pug
“My work is based on Doug the Pug, who is a massively famous dog on social media.
I’m looking at people’s relationships with their dogs.
I’m amazed and baffled at how obsessed people are with their pets. My work is meant to be me worshipping this dog like a religious tapestry.
My three years at AUB have been really good, very interesting and pushed me to do a lot of other things.
When I first came here, I was very strict that I would only do painting and wouldn;t branch out or do anything else.
The course has really pushed me to look at different mediums.
Now I’ve finished, I want to keep painting and sell my work. I’ve actually just sold a few pieces already.”
"I basically have a long-standing obsession with modernist practice and concepts." Joe Morgan
“I basically have a long-standing obsession with modernist practice and concepts.
I guess it started with discovering certain prominent figures on the architecture scene from the early 20th century in Russia through to the mid 20th century in UK, Italy, France and Germany as well and the
I’m also interested in the eighties – especially in the UK.
That’s pretty much my practice: taking parts from each of these things and then combining them with the contemporary.
I’m a highly motivated person and the last three years at AUB have been hard work and long hours but enriching and very enjoyable.
I used the facilities to the maximum and I have a good relationship with the workshops and the print room.”
"My work is about my mum, she’s obsessed with growing geraniums." David Baker
“My work is about my mum, she’s obsessed with growing geraniums.
I set up a geranium as a prop, throughout the stage play of my life. I have a picture of my mum holding a geranium, then pictures of me at birth.
When I’m born, I’m behind the geranium and I’ve also got a much more recent picture of me from last year, when I’m holding a geranium.
AUB has been amazing, it’s been a real journey. I have to give a shout-out to the AUB print room: those guys have been great and have really helped me develop.
They have taught me loads about printmaking and bringing my work up to a professional standard.”
