Hajnalka Rezes, who is studying an MA in Contemporary Crafts at the University for the Creative Arts Farnham, has been selected to appear on MAstars, an annual online exhibition of the artists to watch from the UK's leading MA courses.
Hajnalka's collection of interactive utensils captured the attention of Dr Outi Remes, Director at New Ashgate Gallery, during her visit to the UCA's MAde exhibition 2013 which showcased student's work across all subject areas. Photos of Hajna's collection and a review written by Outi will be published as part of her MAstar profile on Axisweb.
Outi said: "Hajnalka's work demonstrates conceptual flair and blurs the boundaries between fine art and craft, something which I knew would work well for Axisweb's audience".
MAstars provides upcoming artists like Hajnalka with an opportunity to gain more exposure, as for many of them it is the first time that another art professional writes about their work.
This year a team of curators, academics and art professionals visited MA degree shows at 20 different universities and colleges throughout the UK to select the best emerging talent to be featured on MAstars.
Julian Lister, MAstars coordinator at Axisweb said: "MA degrees often mark the end of an art student's experience at an educational institute, so to be selected as an MAstar is a great end to that process."
"As well as being an addition to an emerging artist's CV, artists featured on MAstars can also apply to have a profile for a year on Axisweb without having to go through the formal assessment procedure. This is an excellent way of building relationships with art professionals and getting further recognition for their work."
