The meaning of the word iridescent is showing luminous colours that seem to change as the angle of view or illumination alters. Many of the works in this collection have been created during a global pandemic; it is an understatement to say this has had an effect on the artists and therefore their work, from the way they have produced it through to the concepts it aims to explore.
The Iridescent Collection is an exciting new range of works, featuring over 40 new creatives, who are current students and recent graduates of University of the Arts London. The works in the collection range from print, photography, illustration, fine art, sculpture, ceramics and fashion.
As always the collection was selected by a panel of leading figures in the world of art and design, this time made up of:
Rosemary Cronin - an artist, curator and project manager, with a particular interest in socially engaged practice.
Harry Triggs - Co-founder of TM Lighting.
Eleanor Watson - Curator at the Design Museum, London.
Eleanor West - a Queer, Disabled interdisciplinary artist who’s practice explores queer experience via a variety of mediums and Arts Students’ Union's Activities Officer 2019-21.
