CELEBRATING UTech Jamaica Alumni – Richard Nattoo, Contemporary Visual Artist & Musician September 19, 2019

Fragility Part 2, an exhibition of new works by contemporary visual artist and musician, Richard Nattoo, was held July 27-August 24, 2019 at Gene Pearson Gallery.

 

Richard Nattoo Creates Unique Styles – Showcases At Kingston’s Newest Art Space – R Hotel’s Gene Pearson Gallery

Nattoo, a recent graduate of the School of Architecture at the University of Technology, Jamaica, uses his skills and competencies gained through his education to bolster his own work, giving them a precision and direction little seen in the local art landscape.

The exhibition comprised 13 etchings on glass prisms. Nattoo first introduced his etchings on glass at the 2014 Jamaica Biennial. It was an innovative and inspiring initiative by the newcomer, receiving positive attention and feedback from art lovers.

Capitalising on his pen, ink and watercolour aquatic surreal scapes, Nattoo sliced his 2D drawings into 3D machinations, etching each aspect on to individual panes of glass, creating a full 360-degree piece of work. Finally, by adding a light source the installed work seemed to be etched in light.

“The success of this and future exhibitions would prompt Nattoo to develop on this unique art style,” said Abigail Smith, curator at Gene Pearson Gallery.

FOSS-10-Anniv

(L-R) Cutting the symbolic ribbon to reopen Phoenix Park at the Faculty of Science and Sport (FOSS) are Professor Colin Gyles, Deputy President, Dr. Kamilah Hylton, Dean and Associate Professor, Mr. Dave Wilson, Branch Manager, NCB, Matilda’s Corner, Kahlil Hutchinson, President, UTech, Jamaica Students’ Union and Professor Stephen Vasciannie, President.

 

The Faculty of Science and Sport kicked off its 10th anniversary celebrations on a high note at a special opening ceremony held on September 12, 2019 on the grounds of the Faculty located at 235 Old Hope Road.  The anniversary launch day also included a Campus Parade which preceded the opening ceremony, the reopening of Phoenix Park and culminated with an invitational football match.

Dean and Associate Professor, Dr. Kamilah Hylton led the exciting cross campus parade along with members of faculty, staff and students.  The talented members of the Jamaica Combined Cadet Force Band provided musical accompaniment and helped to lead the chants of “One Nation, FOSS Nation.”

The opening ceremony marked the beginning of a series of activities being held under the 10th anniversary theme “Intensifying the Momentum into the Next Decade.”

 

Prof-Vasciannie-FOSS-Anniv

Prof. Stephen Vasciannie, President

In his welcome, University President, Professor Stephen Vasciannie gave hearty congratulations to FOSS as a “trailblazer” with a decade of stellar achievements.  “Over the last 10 years, FOSS has made its mark as the premier provider of academic opportunities, research and consultancy services related to the application of science and technology for world-class outcomes in sports, health and wellness and other sectors of Jamaica’s development,” Professor Vasciannie noted.

The President also noted that the establishment of the Faculty of Science and Sport (formerly the Department of Science and Mathematics) on August 1, 2009, “marked an important national stride in augmenting Mathematics and Science teaching education and for safeguarding the sustenance of a world-class Jamaican sports programme that is underspend by the application of science and research.”  

The Chemistry of FOSS

Using the language and terminologies associated with Mathematics, Science and Sport, founding Dean of FOSS, Professor Colin Gyles and current Dean, Dr. Kamilah Hylton took the audience of students, members of faculty, staff and guests through the history, growth and achievements of the Faculty.

CLICK FOR FOSS 10TH ANNIVERSARY CALENDAR!

Professor Colin Gyles, Deputy President, who was instrumental in the establishment of the Faculty, noted with pride that FOSS has stood the test of a decade. In his presentation which he titled “Rxn1:The Rate Determining Step”, he explained that the term refers to the rate at which a reaction takes place.  In this regard, he recounted the journey that led to the transformation of the Department of Science and Mathematics, from its initial offerings of sciences and health modules across the University, to its growth as the Institute of Science and ultimately the establishment of the Faculty of Sciences and Sport.

Professor Gyles noted that the “crisis” and attendant challenges and some resistance which precipitated the formation of FOSS, were used instead as opportunities for growth.  “We had to make the case that it was important for science to be given its own space of importance in a technologically-focused university,” Professor Gyles said.  He thanked the then members of staff and other members of the University who led the determined, lobby efforts that ensured the establishment of the Faculty in 2009.  In this respect, Professor Gyles noted that FOSS had been established on an ethos of problem-solving and congeniality.  He urged students and staff to continue to stay true to their faculty’s motto: “Solving the Problem…Keeping the Vibes.”

Dr. Kamilah Hylton who assumed the role of Dean in 2015 has continued to guide the development of FOSS from strength to strength, overseeing the accreditation of several courses of study, including the BSc in Science and Education and the MSc in Mathematics Teaching.

In her presentation titled “RXn2: Elementary Step 2” the Dean highlighted some of the Faculty’s many accomplishments, including the successful graduation of 640 students in the past decade; garnering the most RDF (Research Development Fund) grants in the 2018/19 Academic Year, and publishing of the first peer-reviewed article in sports.

 

Dr. Hylton also noted the Faculty’s thrust to excite and educate the younger generation in Mathematics and Science, with the establishment of the annual Mathematics Quiz Competition. Affirming hope for the future, Dr. Hylton told the gathering that “we aim to be known as the Faculty of premium course of study offerings and excellent student support. We aim to enhance our science laboratories and establish a high-quality sports performance and injury rehabilitation laboratory. We aim to ensure that our impact on the Jamaican landscape will be transformative,” she said to rousing applause.

Also addressing the ceremony were Mr. Dave Wilson, Branch Manager, Matilda’s Corner NCB, whose company has come on board as new sponsors of the Faculty’s Phoenix Park – a green space for students established in 2017.  Mr. Wilson, congratulated FOSS on a decade of contributions to the youth of Jamaica and the wider Caribbean, noting that UTech, Jamaica graduates are highly sought after for their ability to “hit the ground running” in the working world.
