‘For Jumbo’  to help put the Jumbo back on track

Stunned by news of the recent theft of their trailer, Cornish artist Jason Lilley has presented the St.Ives Jumbo Association with ‘For Jumbo’- a monumental work (5’8″ x 3′ 1″) which he produced specifically to “help put them back on track”. He added “The incomprehensible act of stealing from a charity must not be allowed to detract from their long term ideals.”

“The ideals of our Association, which include the emphasis we place on ‘community’ rather than ‘tourism’, clearly strike a chord with Jason and many of his colleagues.” said spokesman, Jonny Nance.  ‘We are immensely grateful and hugely encouraged by Jason’s extraordinary act of creative generosity.”

‘For Jumbo’ will go on sale for £2500 shortly at The Belgrave Gallery, St.Ives to coincide with the September Festival. The gallery has also offered to donate part of their commission.
