Fine Art Degree Students Remember World War One

Published 08 November

Art & Design


Fine Art BA (Hons) students Audrey Edwards, Christopher Tye and Linda Dearden are collaborating in the final year of their Degree at Craven College on an exhibition to be recreated in Holy Trinity Church for 11 November Remembrance Day. This will be a special year as it will mark 100 years since the end of WW1 and forms part of their Professional Practice module.

Entitled ‘Over by Christmas’, the exhibition shows the impact of World War One on the local area. Linda focussed on the poppy theme and Flanders fields whilst Chris’s focal point was the Cenotaph.

Audrey’s starting point was the War Memorial and the names on it. She wanted to show the contrast between the lives of those remaining in Skipton and those in the trenches and the gap that the people left by no longer being in Skipton as well as representing the Dales countryside in contrast to the trenches. Her painting shows Pen-y-ghent in the background with images of soldiers and a nurse superimposed. The replica postcards linked by string symbolise the communication lines between those at war and home.

Linda explains that the exhibition will be a collection of collage and paintings with a backdrop of wood and sacking to represent the trenches.

Linda and Audrey were able to replicate the lines of the trench maps, whilst Audrey used charcoal on brown paper to embody the landscape of the Somme and Flanders combined with silhouette pictures.

Linda says “We are grateful for the support and inspiration of tutor Bridget Tempest, The Reverend Veronica James, Holy Trinity Church, Skipton, the Craven Museum and the British Legion”.
