Participants will focus on using paint and colour in a balanced yet dynamic manner, portraying the figure within a confinement of space, looking at themes including death, ageing, self-portraiture and crucifixion, all of which a feature in Bacon’s and Lassnig’s work. Jai Chuhan will also offer insights from her own art practice in guiding participant to create work. Her paintings locate the body in shifting interiors, involving notions of control and voyeurism. She will be joined by artist Jasmir Creed whose psycho-geographic paintings map city spaces.
