ARTTRAIL University of Winchester

Welcome to the University of Winchester art collection One of the core values of the University is creativity. So we are really proud of the extensive and diverse art collection we have on display in the buildings and around the grounds of the University. Our collection celebrates creativity in a variety of forms and also recognises the importance of creativity in delivering our mission to educate, advance knowledge and serve the common good. Much of our collection dates back to the period when we delivered courses in fine art. We have continued to collect works of art, particularly pieces which reflect our values of compassion; intellectual freedom; social justice; diversity, equality and inclusion; spirituality; individuals matter and, of course, creativity. As you follow our Art Trail, you will find something for every artistic taste - from glass to metal, photography to textiles, acrylic and even bread! The collection almost spans the history of the University, founded in 1840, with pieces dating from 1852 to the present. Some of our pieces have been specially commissioned, such as the wonderful Angel by resident artist Amy Goodman and the magnificent textile hanging Wisdom ond Lar by Alice Kettle. Others have been acquired, such as Gill Horn’s poignant Life Story in the West Downs Centre and several others, including the intriguing Host by Kate Harding and impressive Standing Divide by Jay Battle, have been kindly loaned by the artists. Many of the pieces have been produced by local artists and the artwork reflects this, drawing inspiration from the history and landmarks of Winchester as well as the architecture and values of the University. It is a real pleasure to invite you to take our Art Trail. I really hope you enjoy our collection as much as we do.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Joy Carter

ARTTRAIL University of Winchester

Artist in Residence: Amy Goodman We appointed our first Artist in Residence in 2014 to work with staff and students to create new art and help curate our art collections. Amy Goodman is a sculptor and portrait artist based at Project Workshops in Quarley, near Andover. A graduate from Southampton Institute in 1997 (now Southampton Solent University), Amy was commissioned to make the eight-foot bronze Angel, which was installed at King Alfred’s Campus in 2013, to look over the University of Winchester’s visitors. A number of Amy’s welded steel pieces can also be seen in the University collection as part of this Art Trail, including a stylised Lebanese Cedar tree for the new side chapel. Amy is developing work representing the University’s core values before having an exhibition in the Link Gallery at the end of her residency. If you would like to find out more about her work please see her website: www.amygoodman.co.uk Our aim is to gradually increase the University’s permanent and loan collection, and to have areas where works will be rotated and changed to keep the environment more stimulating for students, staff and visitors alike. The art complements the wonderfully variant architecture on campus and is an integral part of Winchester’s forward thinking and inclusive ethos.

Snow Leopard Amy Goodman, stainless steel (2013) Amy Goodman is an established sculptor & portrait artist, currently the University’s Artist in Residence. The Snow Leopard scratches against a tree near the entrance to the King Alfred Campus, adjacent to the Learning Café. This piece draws attention to the University’s commitment to biodiversity and its awareness of the plight of endangered species.

2

Looking Through the Past to the Present Roger Stephens, limestone, stainless steel and Portland roach (2003)* The incorporation of elemental, hard and uncompromising materials such as iron and stainless steel are fundamental to Roger Stephen’s work. He strives to imbue the piece with an elegant solution that invites the viewer to touch, feel the contrasting textures and engage with the physical form as well as the intellectual idea.

Amy Goodman, bronze (2013)

King Alfred Campus

Amy wished to create a female Angel that is elegant and beautiful, referencing traditional interpretations whilst at the same time giving her a contemporary edge. Her wings are set high to suit her positioning between the two windows. The Angel has a quiet, yet nurturing strength. Her purpose is to welcome all visitors to the Winchester University campus, in turn reflecting the University’s core values.

Wisdom ond Lar Alice Kettle, textile wall hanging (2010) Echoing the view from the University across Winchester to St. Catherine’s Hill, this commissioned work references the University’s values and its connections with the local community. Landmarks such as the cathedral, the statue of King Alfred and St. Catherine’s Hill feature alongside groups of people dancing and working with references to mythology in thoughts, ideas and learning spilling from the mind of Coeus the Titan of knowledge.

Galloping Thoroughbred Amy Goodman, galvanised welded steel (2009) This life-size galloping horse can be seen at eye level when viewed from the top of the King Alfred campus looking across to the roof of The Stripe building. The horse gallops towards the sheep; the green roof and tree foliage providing a suitable backdrop.

Golden Gate Brian Neish, oils (2013) This painting reflects a deep interest in the surface qualities of architectural features, in particular surfaces adversely affected by the elements, time and corrosion. Known as ‘noble decay’, this describes surfaces that can look more beautiful after years of debilitation than when they were brand new.

The Green Man Glyn Morgan, acrylic (1996)* Found around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities springing up in different cultures throughout the ages. Primarily it is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth or renaissance, representing the cycle of growth each spring. The painting was donated as a memorial to Mike Woodcock, a popular and highly regarded footpath warden.

St Francis and the Hoopoe Robert Hunt, bronze and gilding (2010) In the Christian tradition, St Francis was reputed to have had a deep awareness of God in nature, exemplified when he preached to the birds. This piece is also inspired by an allegorical story by the 12th Century Persian poet and mystic, Farid ud-Din Attār, in which the hoopoe, the symbol of inspiration and the soul’s guide, gathers the birds to search for their King, the Simurgh – essentially a quest to find their spiritual self.

Five portraits from a fascinating photographic series providing a moving insight into the lives of people met on a motorcycling journey across the Sahara and through West, Central and East Africa. Paul would ask one person each day to sit for him, using a white sheet to highlight the subject against a background of the colour and character of everyday African life. He would ask each sitter just one question: "Is there one thing that could make your life better?"

Celebrating 175 years of values-led education Rosa Branson, oil (2015) This painting celebrates the 175th anniversary of the founding of the institution by the Church of England. The painting depicts clergy, theologians and lay people of many Christian denominations who have lived during this period and changed the world and the Church. They embody the University's aspiration to explore the mystery of life and to grow in wisdom and love.

23

Tree of Peace and Reconciliation Amy Goodman, powder coated welded steel (2016) The sculpture is welded in mild-steel and powder coated in a contrasting colour to the dark wood. This difference in materials symbolizes different ethnicities co-existing together. The Cedar is symbolic of wisdom and knowledge, linking East and West, as well as hinting at Immigration.

24

King Alfred’s Jewel Sasha Ward, screen printed glass (2000) A three-storey glass mural comprising 156 panels of screen-printed enamelled glass inside the Martial Rose Library.

Emmaus Fiesso, Italy Liz Hingley, photography (2007) Emmaus is a secular movement with communities in 36 countries across the world. It does not offer charity; it tackles the causes of social exclusion and acknowledges human weakness. It enables people to move on from homelessness, providing work and a home in a supportive environment. Emmaus Hampshire opened in Winchester in 2009.

Trilathon Beltane Jackson, sheet copper (2002) Created from spending an hour within the sacred circle of Stonehenge, sketching, photographing and being at one with the magic of its silence. The work is inspired by ancient civilisations, a lifelong interest in the arts of all nations and influenced by skills Beltane Jackson obtained from working in a bronze foundry, shipyards and in engineering and construction.

Standing Divide Jay Battle, steel and concrete (2004)* The natural materials of iron and limestone have been processed into steel and concrete in this sculpture, displaying two industries that have given us the ability to control our environment and re-order nature to our advantage. Their arrangement in this work is intended to reflect this power.

ARTTRAIL Gill Horn, mixed media An installation about the life of Mary, a fictional character invented from research at Knowle Hospital, Hampshire’s purpose built ‘lunatic asylum’ of 1852. The work consists of three parts – birth to teenage, the middle years and old age to death displayed by a line of Mary’s shoes containing intriguing materials that stand as metaphors for various aspects of her life. Words burnt or drawn on the surface reflect her inner thoughts at times of great celebration, fear and trepidation, through depression and beyond.
