Recent Graduate Holly Chapman Awarded Commendation in RIBAJ Drawing Competition
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.
