Ben Joiner was instrumental in the development of the course and has has led the Fine Art Mixed Media BA since 2000. He has exhibited work in Basel, Barcelona, and Capetown and has work in the Arts Council and Contemporary Art Society collections.
He has jointly curated the Buffet d’art exhibitions at Kunsthaus Meinblau in Berlin, Ambika P3 London, and Hestercombe House in Somerset.
Recent work has been a search for place, away from the palpable and pragmatic towards the uncertainties and specters of the psyche.
The work exists in a liminal space between discipline and desire, between the unrequited and requited. The forms have a surface allure that is familiar, superficial, while the objects remain remote and mute.
