Not only was Billy Bragg in town this week so was Jason Lilley. He was here presenting in Gallery 2 to a group of students on how the smallest and vaguest sketch can lead to a body of work. He also explored how sketches and photography are essential to developing work in the studio. He demonstrated how he builds up a painting with the below work called “Soul, Sold”.
He then led the students off in order for them to study and make work based on St Ives and its horizon line. They were out drawing for ages; I am sure some great work will evolve from the teaching.
