This week, we are pleased to introduce you to another fantastic volunteer: Leanora Brophy, who has been a great addition to our Art Matters team.
‘I graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2012, with a BA Hons in Sculpture and I currently have a studio space at SWG3. This has enabled me to continue developing my artistic practice. I have exhibited at Compass and A. galleries and more recently had work selected for the 2013 RGI annual exhibition where I won the A4A Foundry prize. My current sculptural practice explores the notion of reproduction, of the body and nature as a vessel, for the production and containment of life. My potter’s wheel is the initial starting point for the forms I create. Working with clay is a very intuitive process where the material can lead the way in developing the outcome of the sculptural forms created.
I have had previous teaching experience working with young children and adults in various settings and have really enjoyed my time working with John and the Art Matters group at Project Ability. It has been a fantastic experience to see the enjoyment, co-operation and creative spirit which the members of the group connect with both each other and their individual artistic practices.’
