This week’s Artwork of the Week is Tuesday Morning by Lucy Payne. This beautiful drawing is part of a new collection of studio portraits by Lucy Payne currently on display in Drawing People Drawing in Project Ability’s gallery.
In Tuesday Morning, Lucy has captured the very essence of Project Ability’s studio; the vibrancy of the workshop and of the artists who bring it to life on a daily basis. We can almost hear the chatter and the sound of pencils moving whilst the Tuesday morning Aspire group get to work.
A recent graduate from the Glasgow School of Art, Lucy previously volunteered with Project Ability’s Aspire programme and so has spent a great deal of time getting to know both the studios and the artists. What results in Drawing People Drawing is a very colourful, intimate and absorbing look at the way Project Ability’s studios and artists work.
Drawing People Drawing continues until 27 May and is accompanied by a new publication which features Lucy Payne’s illustrations alongside text from several of Project Ability’s artists. The publication was developed through a series of workshops with Joanna Peace and Anthony Autumn, and is available to buy in our gallery shop.
