Attenborough Art Centre in Leicester asked me to photograph some of their courses, for the new courses brochure. So I spent a lovely week dipping into what was going on, then editing, and chatting, in their café.
These are some of the photos from the painting, drawing and silver jewellery courses.
I saw Matt Smith’s piece “Splintered” which he created with Meg Ullah. It impressed me with it’s simplicity and power. It’s mixture of the personal and impersonal and tempting failure. So I knew he would be a good subject for PoPA.
I returned a couple of days later. It had all disappeared, but you could tell where the flour had been, as there were patches, covered in snail trails.
