MAJOR OAK ROOM
Welcome to the Major Oak Room.
This exhibition of work has been created by Chris Lewis-Jones and Edward Jeavons in association with Nottingham Trent University's Creative Short Course Department. You will also find work by artists Janet Wootton and Annie Samuel.
Browse the different areas of the room at your leisure by clicking the left or right arrow. Each area is dedicated to one
of the artists above. Hover over the foot of each set to find out more.
Look below to find a showcase of portraits by Nottingham Trent University Creative Short Course tutor, Paul Carroll.
In this series of woodcut prints entitled 'fragments' I wasn't working from memories searching for a specific form but rather a kind of splintered amalgamation of different places and objects that I'd encountered. All are 15cm x 21cm and are £75 unframed and £95 framed.
Janet works voluntarily as an NTU Alumni Fellow, sharing her wide experience in many areas of the creative industries and putting back some of what she learned as a mature MA Fine Art student eight years ago.
Annie was born in Egypt in 1953. She studied Fine Art at the University of Nottingham. Annie has won awards including the Knutston Hall prize at Patchings art exhibition and the Wirksworth Festival Prize in the Derby open art competition for the soundscape ‘The Whispering'.
After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a First Class Honours BA in Photography, Paul spent two years working as Technical Editor for Digital Photo Magazine.
Taking the freelance plunge in 2010, Paul has spent 10 years working as a commercial photographer specialising in editorial, advertising, lifestyle and portrait commissions.
He continues to write freelance for the photography press and teaches photography on the Nottingham Trent University Short Course program.
A mixture of commercial commissions and personal work, Paul’s portraits for the Upload Festival emphasis his signature portrait style of strong and uncluttered composition combined with dramatic lighting.
