Love the Unknown: Artwork by Year 12 & 13 Southborough High School

Inspired by Boudicca’s The Liquid Game
Schools’ Programme February 2014

The Stanley Picker Gallery is pleased to present an online presentation of artworks made by AS and A-level Art Students from Southborough High School, who as part of the Stanley Picker Gallery’s Schools’ Programme, participated in a Gallery-based workshop inspired by The Liquid Game, an immersive and multi-sensory installation by Stanley Picker Fellows, Boudicca (Zowie Broach and Brian Kirkby) which takes influence from by the Gallery’s cultural history and island location along the Hogsmill River.

Students learnt about the duo’s practice, influences and creative processes, while sharing their individual interpretations and ideas through listening activities, drawing and discussion. Inspired by Boudicca, and before them Millais (1829-1896) pupils explored the riverbank, sketching and collecting other visual and digital material for transformation into their own abstracted landscapes. A slideshow of the finished artworks can be viewed above. Click here to read a review by participant Gemma Kwon.
