Recent Graduate Holly Chapman Awarded Commendation in RIBAJ Drawing Competition

News

Recent MArch graduate Holly Chapman has been commended for her drawing entry to the RIBA Journal’s Eye Line 2020 Competition: a drawing competition open to entries from around the world. Holly’s hand drawn pencil study is entitled Under the Fifth Facade: A Swimmer’s Perspective.

From the RIBA Journal website:

Inspired by the illusionary paintings of baroque painter Andrea Pozzo, Chapman’s final year thesis takes the territory of the swimming pool, seeing it as a metaphor for how architectural representation can be both ‘deceptive and perceptually ambiguous.’ Within this context, she invites the viewer to enter an Escher-like world.
